Invariably, when we update something in our house, something else (that we thought looked fine before) stands out as not looking as nice/fresh/updated as we had previously thought. Why is that?!? When we added on to the front of our house, the new entry way felt so nice – and the adjacent wallpapered foyer almost…

Our formal living room has been a work in progress since we moved in to our house. At the time we moved in, the (slightly pink) paint color in this room was one of the least objectionable wall treatments in our house. It was (at least) a fairly neutral color in comparison to the various…

Since we moved into our house two and a half years ago, we’d only used the fireplace in the living room just a couple of times.  It had been updated sometime in the last 20 years or so with a set of gas logs and while they looked nice and weren’t as messy as a…

We’re so excited to finally have a couple of furniture deliveries scheduled this week for items we’ve ordered over the last few months.  We have a new sofa and a couple of upholstered chairs coming on Wednesday … and a new coffee table and credenza (for behind the sofa) being delivered on Friday. After this,…

After being in our house for about 2 years and having basically no furniture in our living room during that time, we finally decided it was time to start furniture shopping. Our living room is pretty large (about 30′ long x 16′ wide), but really long and narrow with lots of doorways that make furniture…
