I normally wouldn't layer lots of patterns like this. I would just layer a sisal with a pattern or a hide rug. But this is totally working for me. Similar colors tie in all the rugs. Add in all the whites surrounding. Just lovely!
What do you think? Do you layer your rugs?

I am literally drooling over this kitchen. I am loving the brass pulls and polished nickel sink/faucet. This just proves you CAN mix metals! Love it!!
Also, dying over the vintage chandeliers found at an antique store for $300 then went to another shop across town and found the exact same one for only $200. Really? That was just meant to be. So Lovely!

BEFORE (BYE BYE Dark Doors)
THE BEST WHITE PAINT EVER
Dunn Edwards Swiss Coffee
(which I have made at Home Depot)
OK so I know we still have a big Dark Massive Elephant in the Hallway. But I am thinking of painting it a light Gray color to kinda pop off all the white. Also coming soon a new light fixture. :)
Don't be jealous of my Green Bathroom ;)
It is a work in Progress! But it is slowly coming along. I have been wanting to paint all my doors for so long, but had no Painting Energy left in me after painting every wall in my house. Literally! So after a year next week of move in day. I am really happy with all of the PROGRESS in our house!

Then I Purchased 2 wing backs for $60 on KSL here in Utah. I still want to get them reupholstered. On the TO DO list!! I have always wanted Wing Back Chairs. I love the classic shape and style to them. (still wasn't sure what I wanted on the back wall. This was a painting the hubby was messing around with.)
Then I wanted to move around the furniture...
PROGRESS. NEW LAYOUT to open up the room.
FINAL PROGRESS. I spent $250 for 2 New Pillows, Antlers and Framed Art work.
PROGRESS. Styled the book shelf a little differently by stacking the books more vertically.
What do you think? Have I made much progress in my Living Room?
$250 Living Room Source

Gold Mirror- Consignment Store
White framed water color Art- $10 that I won from Flourish Design + Style Blog
Small Old photos are actually family photos my mom gave me. Left. Is my Grandma (who died last year) with her mom and brother. Right. Is my Grandma's Moms. Mom. So my Great Great Grandma.
Small Antlers.- $15 Ebay. Had the hubby make the shield looking piece of wood behind it and painted it Black.
Large Gold framed Art Work- $60 Purchased on KSL by a local seller. ( I still debating if I should of gotten it a little cheaper but all well. I really liked the black around the gold to tie it all together.)
Bottom Picture is a Frame I already had and made DIY art from my magazines. (Will post about it later.)
20X20 Floral Pillows- $65 each from CWD Textiles ( my down inserts are from Pottery Barn. They are my fave and there cheap)
