Living Room Design - Part 6 - the completed room

My daughter's living room has once again been through a few changes and added a few new pieces. You may have seen some of my posts of this Living Room Design Project by Mary Carroll of Nell Hill's in Kansas City. In my last post, the ottoman had arrived and the room had to be rearranged for Christmas and her large tree.

Now the living room is back in order and some items have a new spot. Here's a look at the room for this post.

This side of the room has one of the changes I will show you in a minute. You may have already noticed if you remember the room decor before.

You guessed it, it is the white lacy jar. It has been moved close to the white couch now.

Here's the jar on the sideboard (not working). My daughter took pictures of the jar on her sideboard back to Nell Hill's and asked for their opinion. 

She purchased the jar from Nell Hill's and loved it and thought it would work on the sideboard but just kept looking at it and feeling it wasn't in the right place. 

I agree, the jar looks so much better close to the couch. It's not fighting with the colors of the large painting on the wall.

The lamp on the sideboard has also been changed. The rustic one (seen above) wasn't working and now has been moved to the family room in the basement. She hasn't found the perfect lamp so moved one of her Pottery Barn lamps until the perfect lamp can be found.

New decor has been added to the tray on the ottoman. A rabbit and a bird's nest are bringing a little spring to the room.

Here's a final shot of the room for this post.

Thanks for stopping by for an update on her living room - Judy.
