Good Morning Everyone!
Hope your having a wonderful start to your Monday morning.
To I'd like to share my newly decorated Living Room that I was able to put the finishing touches on this past weekend.
I am so happy with the finished look of this room.
It seems for fresh and bright, perfect for getting me through these last few months of winter.
The best part of this makeover is that I didn't have to purchase a single new item to make it work.
Instead, I shopped my stash of decorating supplies and used leftovers from previous projects to craft a new look for the room that I really like.

This adorable cast iron dog that my husband gave me a while back sort of became my inspiration for this room.
Plus for some reason when sticking to a two color room theme I find it much easier to pull the whole room together then when trying to use multiple colors.
I typically like the finished results much better also.
I am pretty sure it has a lot to do with my love of keeping things simple and not cluttering up my rooms with alot of unnecessary stuff.
Whatever the reason,
I am so happy to have found a formula that works for me and my family when it comes to this often times frustrating job of decorating a home.
Getting back to the room at hand, I gathered items to use as accents in this already white space like this mirror I hung above my DIY Barn Door.
And then I crafted new items to use from previous project leftovers.
Like the tiny flags draped over the barn door - - made from leftover fabric from a quilt I made a while back for my daughter.
Thrift store finds like this candelabra and tattered books helped me not only bring in more accents of black but also to give the room an aged, collected overtime look that I like.
Somehow or another,
just a touch of red made it's way into the room.
For those of you who know me well, this won't surprise you at all.
I really did try to resist the urge but since it was paired with black and white it was not hard at all to let down my guard.
Overall, simple displays crafted around the black and white theme carries the room and makes me smile.
I have a feeling I will be enjoying this room just the way it is for quite some time in the near future.
Hope you all have a fantastic day.
