How to give your space a spring spruce up!

Do you guys ever get bored with your decor?
It's no secret I have design ADD
(my budget cringes)
So, I go for the quick fix.  Pillows and accessories.
Oh, and in this case, lamp shades.
If you've ever clicked on my home tour, you know my living room looks like this
(all photos via Amber Beckham Photography)

but with a few small changes, my living room looks like this
I originally shared this new look here
but I thought you might like to see a few more detailed pics











(Um, why didn't I turn that coffee table around for the first photo session?  ugh.)  
I think the blue is still my favorite look, but I'm lovin' the change! 
(Oh, and I just bought a new chair so get ready, its about to change again! Stay tuned...)

  5. Beautiful before and beautiful after. Sometimes, it is fun to change things up for a fresh new look from time to time to keep things interesting, isn't it?

  6. I was already incredibly impress at just the pictures, but after looking at your sources list and those *PRICES*??? I just went from "incredibly impressed" to "holy-crapola impressed" (c: In my book, that is a good thing. It looks so amazing and I am *dying* over those WS pillows with the orange design...perfectly lovely.

  29. I was wondering, how did you hide the cables of the tv + cable box, etc ?

    I have my tv mounted on top of the fireplace but I have no idea how to hide the wires and boxes.
