A New Couch

I bought a new couch for my living room!  I wanted something more elegant for this room, so I can sit and read, drink tea, and relax.



I've had this picture for awhile, and thought the colors went well with the couch.  It reminds me of my mom too. 


I've always liked this little bird table at Pier 1 Imports, so I picked one up yesterday.


I love jewel frames and anything with jewels.


It's fun putting a room together.  That's all part of decorating.


Do you like to decorate too?

Love your new couch and the picture of the lady taking time to smell the roses is lovely. Even nicer that it reminds you of your mom.
I like the pops of blue you have in your room and the little birdie table is the sweetest.
I share the love of decorating with you.
Have a happy weekend.

Aqua...My favourite and yes, I love to change things around...I think most women do, don't you? Something to do perhaps with the nesting symdrome?
All the best,

Wow, I love all of it Sheri, but most of all the bird table. As a bird lover, I will not rest now until I can find something like that - it is beautiful!

Barbara said...

What a beautiful couch and your bird table is awsome! Yes, I love decorating and last week I bought a new fire side back wing chair in the UK, but it will take 5 weeks to ship it to me and then... the fun part will begin, decorating my livingroom.

Love,
B.

Kerri said...

The couch is beautiful and I love the color of the candle! It matches the throw pillows perfectly. I like to decorate for seasons & holidays :)

I resurrected this old blog, trying to make it only my dog art blog.
Have a blessed Sunday!

Wow, Sheri a wonderful choice of sofa. Yes, it's so elegant and goes amazing with your turquoise. It's
such a pretty color. I just love to decorate, seems I'm always moving things around, mom was the same way.
Have a blessed Sunday. Hugs...Lu

Hi Sheri,

Yes, I love to decorate. Its fun to rearrange things and add new items. I find my taste is always evolving. I like a bit of everything but modern so my taste is a bit eclectic. I love trying to find unusual prints for the walls and just recently found a cute canvas print of a balloon that was soaring in the sky with the words "I love you, forever". I didn't get it and now I'm sorry I didn't! Oh well, that's the way it goes...you win a few you lose a few. I really like your new sofa....very nice!

andrea@townandprairie said...

Your cozy corner has a bit of glam! The dark blue offers a nice and unexpected contrast to the tan sofa. Your room has a lovely richness to it now...that royal blue really set a tone! Love your Pre-Raphaelite print, too!

Dear Sherri,

Lovely items and accents you chose for your Home. And your Life. Vibrant, full of fun and happy vibes.

In Love with the Couch and the table.

I like to decorate but I take lots of time to choose and pick the pieces because I'm too inconstant in my taste what makes it a commitement to buy a piece because I need to know I won't be bored in one week ahahahahah

I wouldn't be with your choices, that's for sure.

Well done!

Teresa

Sheri your couch is sooo very special and your decorating is absolutely gorgeous. I amloving the decadence that the aqua blue adds to the room. May you enjoy many cups of tea within this new room .
