37th Table Top Tuesday - Winter Living Room Reveal



Welcome to the 37th Table Top Tuesday.  I am so excited that you've joined us, and I can't wait to see what all you've been up to.

This is what the Living Room has looked like for a while.  Love the bright orange and lime greens.  However for the winter season, I wanted to give it a warmer and more cozy look.

I swapped out the Iris pillows for some gorgeous embroidered chocolate ones, and the lime solid ones for a more elegant textured fabric  Still with orange and lime green, but a little warmer look for the coming season. I also swapped the beige throw out for a dark faux mink. (The beige sofa in the front window is finally going to the familyroom in a couple of weeks, I hope.  I can't wait to have it moved.)



Love the brown fabric, so rich and yummy.  The lime one has such texture and the tone on tone is a beautiful pattern. 



I made a small change on the Dining Table too.

For the summer look I've used an orange table runner.



When I made my drapes, I used two fabrics and bought enough to make some additional accessories for the room.

The tablerunner I made ties the table to the drapes and continues the color scheme around the room.  The centerpiece stayed the same with just the addition of a hurricane.

The coffee table was changed out with a few different accessories.

I'm using a gold fruit topiary for a more elegant look.

A group of Faberge and marble eggs create an interesting vignette to see.

I placed the decorating books in the tray along with some gold candlesticks and a candle snuff.

A transferware dish and some coasters finish off the table.

Just a few small changes and a whole new look.  Do you change up your rooms for the seasons?

I am also linking to Kim @ Savvy Southern Style for Before and After.  Be sure to visit her and see all the other changes going on in blogland.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always look forward to your visits.  Be sure to link up below, I can't wait to see what you've been up to.

  3. Beautiful as always Marty :o)
    I've just changed the pillows and added a few snuggly throws. The coffee table goes through constant changes, so I've added a few little gold and red items to warm it up a bit.
    Hope you have a great week, best wishes

  31. Darn it Marty! Every time I leave your blog, I think I want to get out my sewing machine, but I KNOW I would get so frustrated if I tried to do what you do with yours. That runner is so pretty, and I love that it matches your drapes. Your accessories on the coffee table look beautiful, and I love those two colored candles. Your whole room looks so inviting and cozy for the Fall weather. Thank you for hosting. laurie

  35. Wonderful job on those drapes and tablerunner. I'd been looking at your drapes and thinking they reminded me of mine, (storebought)just the setup. I'm sure sewing them was not the small feat it seems it would be. I made a drape for my patio door once, floor to ceiling, 3 fabric panels matched and stitched together, and lined and hemmed. A lot more work than the quick stitch up the edges I was originally thinking. I didn't think I'd even consider doing something like it again, but your drapes have me inspired. Maybe I'll work on a tablerunner instead, get it out of my system.

  36. Changes are good when they are little and step by step, I believe, and I love your step by step changes very much, hmm yes a neutral sofa is the best thing, when ever you want you can change the over all colour scheme.. and have a new look... I am also going to make little changes soon, love yours..

  42. I love your fruit topiary. I'm sure it's great all year long but it looks even better for fall/winter. Isn't it amazing how a few color accents changes the tone of a room. My seasons change with my "dolls." I have Pilgrims for November, a Pumpkin Lady for October, a Rose Lady for February, etc. You have a lovely home.

  43. Sigh. It's just gorg, Marty. I love everything, especially the damask fabric you have on a couple of the pillows. I'll be right over for a cup of coffee ;).

  51. So pretty Marty! I love your brown pillows with the warm colored florals on them. They are just wonderful! I rather like the two sofas in your room though, I hope you won't miss it too much. I also like your fabrege eggs on the coffee table. But, most especially, I love the table runners, both the orange one and the new brown one. I really want something new but am still undecided. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

  72. GASP... what an absolutely beautiful room. The fabric and trim on the pillows are gorgeous. I especially love the pillow that has the the green/blue background with the tonal texture.

    Thanks for dropping in! I must say that even the subtle changes you make to your living room really makes a big difference! Everything looks very warm, rich and inviting! Love that nice size mirror over the couch. Was it hard to mount? My hubby usually hangs my pictures and mirrors and does a very good job. But I think I would probably called in the pros for one this size!! LOL!! Love it! Have a great week! Hugs!
