Good Morning Friends!
It's definitely that time of year when we want to refresh things around the house.
Our family room has gone through a metamorphosis since you were here last time.
One change we made was a big deal while the rest are small but special.
For those of you who've been with me for awhile...do you see anything different?
We have a different couch!
Yes, it's the third one since we've lived here for the last 3 1/2 years and there's a very legitimate reason for that which I will explain in another post. Suffice it to say, it's not that we are that spendy!
I decided to simplify our pillows on the couch for awhile. Two large red pillows and a smaller spotted pillow are making me smile these days. The photograph above was taken from the staircase and gives a great shot of the Karastan wool rug that we've had for about 15 years.
Trends in rugs come and go but this one stays with us because it's beautiful and very soft.
The lamp on the end table was purchased for about $40 right before Christmas at Kirkland's. I'm really happy with its taller proportions and shape.
The bird lamp reflects beautifully now over on the side console table.
Of course, the mirrors were brought into this room a few months ago from another spot in the house.
You all saw the mantel as it currently is a couple of weeks ago.
I stare at the Emily Jeffords print all the time. I love it!! The colors are so rich and deep
that you really feel like you are gazing into a sky.
These tulips are fading away now.
We had them all over the house when I hosted the baby shower two weekends ago.
Even though they are not perfect anymore, they are still pretty to me.
So that's our room refresh for the beginning of this year. This room serves us so very well.
We have room for lots of people when we host parties and the flow is wonderful from the entry and into the kitchen.
I feel very blessed to have this home. It's a place where we welcome family and friends every chance we get. It's a place to make memories now and in the future.
Do you feel that way too?
Don't forget to link up with us for

Thank you Jennifer for this wonderful link up.
Can't wait to go see the other participants and their homes.
