Finding New Accessories For The Mini Living Room Makeover

As you all know I have been in the process of doing a "Mini Living Room Makeover".  I think I have a couple of big items figured out - 1 The new Mirror and 2. The coffee Table.   Now I want to fill in with some new up to date accessories to pull the room together.   

A friend and I were out to lunch the other day and we ran into World Market.  I almost always find the most interesting things there.  I especially love their pillows.  You can't beat their selection of Velvet pillows starting at $9.99.  Their dinnerware is amazing also, however today I was looking for decor items for the living room makeover.

1.The large gray planter with brass stand would be perfect to add some greenery in the corner by the front window.  At only $44.99 I think it is a steal .


2.  The large glass pillar candle holder is stunning with the gold trim.  It is huge too at 7.5" wide and 9.5" tall.  Perfect to make a statement on the coffee table or an end table.

3.  This metal Gold Lotus Flower Tealight Holder is also an impressive size at 7" in diam. and 5.5" high.  This has enough size and character it will show up on an end table and not get lost.  I prefer to use fewer items with some size instead of a bunch of little things.  

4.  Gold Apple is such an iconic piece.  It could go anywhere and this one is a great size at over 4".

5.  I love the yellow color of this pretty velvet lumbar pillow.  It is available in lots of colors too.

6.  A square pillow is a staple in any decor and their selection of velvet pillows in a rainbow of colors for only $9.99 is such a deal.

We had fun shopping so I thought you might like to tag along and see what caught my eye.  I did pick up a couple of pillows and I think that wonderful gray and brass planter is coming home with me too.  It would be perfect for this pretty plant hubby just brought home.


How about you, are you adding anything new to freshen up your home for fall and the holidays?

Every Room Needs A Little Greenery

Adding plants to a room brings them to life.  I kept looking at the living room (I know I think I am becoming obsessive about this space).  It just felt like something was missing, then it dawned on me, a plant.  Something big and alive.

This isn't a really big room, so I can't use something really big.  This plant is tall and slim - perfect for this corner.
It is a Dracaena Palm.  It will get plenty of filtered light by the window, so it is a good plant for this area.

I spotted some really neat baskets at Home Goods the other day, I think a big basket will be a great base for this plant.

Now all I have to do is keep this one alive.  Do you use real or faux in your home?

Friday DIY & Finds

Every single person in blogland is busy with Fall, Halloween and even a few are way ahead to Christmas.  I am way behind, too much to do, but so much inspiration. 

This master bathroom reveal from Remodelando la Casa is amazing.  You definitely have to go see the before and all of the detail she put into this remodel.  This is truly magazine worthy.


I love a kitchen with a lot of windows and this one is GORGEOUS.  Just look at those views. 


This is just one of several gorgeous tables she shares. 

These floating apple candles are so fun and she shares a great tutorial too. 

You have to go see the rest of this porch decorated for Halloween.  It is unreal and so fun.

This wonderful table popped up in my inbox this last week from a post that was linked to my Inspire Me Tuesday from Nov. 14, 2014.  I love how this table has mixed feathers, flowers, antlers, lace and burlap for such a beautiful setting.

This fun Halloween Table really caught my eye. 




and the post showing how I made over my thrifty $79.50 headboard with paint. 


So pleased with how the "Mini Living Room Makeover" is coming together.
