Living Room Chronicles

As limited as the possibilities are, I still love to do quick little changes in our living room. I'm limited by the cable location and the fact that our front door opens into the middle of the room, so the changes are always subtle. BUT, really cool vintage chairs and a detachable (and re-attachable) chaise lounge, help to keep things interesting.
 
The last time I posted about the living room, it looked a bit like this:

I had detached the chaise from our IKEA Kivik sofa and had just found this super adorable vintage chair, so this arrangement sort of highlighted those "new" pieces.
 
Well, a couple months later, I found the most amazing pair of vintage chairs and I knew that they had to be apart of the living room. The blue chair was moved to Davin's room (which was perfect, by the way), and the new chairs took it's place. I really hate that I never photographed the arrangement, but I did happen to capture it for Instragram.

Yesterday, I was at it again, and now it's looking like this!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I added the sectional back to the sofa. This way, the hubs is a little more inclined to cuddle with me. He had dumped me and sofa time for the extra comfy vintage chairs. Yes, they're that comfortable...and they swivel! I added a few touches of black (and brass!!!) to get things feeling a bit more like fall.
 
There are a few things I'd like to add. New artwork above the sofa is at the top of the list. I already know what I want, just need to save up a few coins to get it.
 
So, what do you think? It's definitely my favorite space of the moment.
 
Xoxo,
