Little Living Room Changes

Little by little, I am getting things done in the living room.  One of my favorite accessories in the room right now is this brass swan I picked up for a couple of dollars at a thrift store.  I can’t help but look at it whenever I pass by the room!

We also hung some more Lenda curtains that I tweaked to eliminate the tabbed look.  (Someday I will get around to recovering those thrift store chairs…but for now I am procrastinating out of fear!)  Also ignore the table accessories.  Eventually, I'll find some brighter things to liven that area up.

I also had Mark hang some frames above the couch for a small gallery wall.  The frames are 11x14, but I plan on using mats to fit an 8x10 picture & then printing some free images from the computer.

I cannot figure out what to frame.  I really like the idea of birds.  Maybe herons, swans, & flamingoes.  I also like the idea of sea fans and coral or just pretty botanical prints.  The problem with these ideas is that I am having trouble finding six different, free, images of anything other than botanicals.  Would it look weird if I mixed & matched?

I’d love for you to weigh in & help me decide what should grace these frames.  My daughter seems to think the paper that came in them is beautiful, but I’d rather go with something less UPC code matchy-matchy!

  1. Pretty room and I love the drapes, they look so pretty. The frames are wonderful and will be a fantastic focal point. I think you can mix and match or go with all one theme, either way. Hugs, marty

  2. Maybe you could find a calendar that has pictures you like it it and fill the frame with those? It wouldn't be free but it would be cheaper than buying art for them.

    Of course, most calendars would probably be oriented the other direction . . . but that's the best idea I have. I'm only halfway through my coffee, though. :)

  3. I think it would be a great idea to mix and match! As long a your color schemes "go together" with being too matchy matchy anything would look great in those frames!

  5. I love art by kids. Maybe you could have them make birds (or whatever you like) out of construction paper or tissue paper. Then mat the pictures...they would look great and the kids would probably be excited about their artwork hanging in the living room :-)
