framed!

Yesterday, we finally got around to dressing up one of the bare walls in the living room. i have to admit, even though the living room is pretty much in shape, the space did seem a little uninhabited because of the huge bare white walls staring at us. it was driving AG crazy. me? not so much. but just because i'm afraid of nail holes in the walls. nail holes in my new walls. nevertheless we got to it. we have had in our possession eight (very nice) frames we found at the dollar store, which we bought on sale (on sale at the dollar store, can you believe it???) for months now, so the time came to hang them up.

I think they turned out nicely. we are still missing framed art to put inside the empty frames, but this is a start. the top frame has a postcard of a couple from the 40's, the middle frame is some abstract art and the bottom frame is a still from melies "le voyage dans la lune" (for the movie producer husband). and today i got decor8 holly's package in the mail with some lovely cards, one which will surely be very soon up on the wall. oh, yes. and there is a framed light bulb. AG says it's dada, very duchamp...

Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual. http://living-room-decoration.blogspot.com
