My Mother's Living Room got a charming cottage refresh today.
Every few months or so my Mom will get the urge for some small updates.
Well, this one turned out to be a little more than most.
It also turned out to be, what I believe she has been looking for all along in this house.
A cheery, quaint country cottage look to come home to everyday.
The curtains were made for my Mom by her dear friend Marge.
They really were the inspiration for the entire room.
Michael collected several new decorative items that were sure to be just the touch.
Some new, some old, some thrift store finds.
He spent the day freshening up all around.
What a great surprise for her to come home to today.
She actually knew he was changing a few things around, but
I think she truly enjoyed the finished product.
It seems to be the most like "her" this home has ever been.
I think at times my brother & myself also stear her off course just a bit too.
We are a bit more minimalist than she is, though we like a great cottage look as much as the next.
Always on a budget, this room has never felt completly finished.
It had good bones to start with.
A casual blue striped slipcovered sofa, denim slipcovered chair, a few junk store chests, & tables.
I really think this time it turned out perfect.
The fresh pops of yellow, blue & green are very refreshing.
He even brought in the two white end tables next to the sofa that my Dad made years ago.
My Mom is planning a small get together for a few friends for next week.
I have been helping with some of the details.
But, like most of us would,
she wanted to freshen up the house a bit before her guests arrived.
I'm so glad she did!
I hope she really enjoys this new space & feels at right at home in this new cozy living room.
I think Lucy approves:)
Hope you love your refreshed living room Mom!
