A Look at Our Living Room

As I teased in last week's Fab Finds Friday post, some of my thrifty finds have been placed in new living room vignettes. After taking down my Christmas and Valentine decor, I was definitely ready to switch things up in there!

As a refresher, check out this post to see what our living room looked like earlier this year (I love a good before and after!) And now, here's what it looks like now:

And here are all the lovely little details:

I am seriously loving how "done" the living room looks now. To some people it might look a little crowded/cluttered (especially since it's a smaller space), but I've always loved a collected, "filled" look (like Candace Olsen if she were a flea market frequenter). Once we have a bigger living space I'm sure I'll spread out my surface decorating a bit more :) I am excited to move back home but kinda bummed to pack this all away. Then again, I will have a whole new space to decorate and share! Wahoo!

  1. looks good! love all the books :). and I like the way you put the globe on a stand on top of the shelf--the height it adds works nicely there.

  2. looks good as the way you put the globe on a stand on top of the rack -the tallness it includes works superbly there
