Funny how once you paint the walls, you don't want to hammer a bunch of nails in it. I still have quite a bit of stuff on the walls, but not nearly what I did have.
I absolutely fell in love with this cow canvas. Instant love. And it holds court prominently over the couch.
As does Charlie on the couch. They're looking pretty unkempt, but I can't take them to get groomed yet due to Abi's surgery. And they need some coat in this winter weather. They aren't models.
And this quilt went to the opposite wall. I swear I told myself I wasn't going to hang the quilts, but as you see, I did.
And no more gallery wall. I was getting a bit overwhelmed sitting right across from this wall during the day every single day working on my laptop with all that going on.
See Abi's floppy ears at the lower right bottom?
And did you notice that the door is no longer orange?
I wanted a place for family photos. But this piece of furniture always looks washed out here, so I don't know that it will stay here under the window.
It would look better where it was. But then the family photos would have to compete with the very colorful quilt on the wall.
Yes, there are now always doggy steps to the couch because the pupsters have old age ailments and don't need to be jumping. Charlie can't and Abi shouldn't.
There is always a laptop there ready for me to work. There are always going to be doggy beds showing up in photos. And there will always be soft blankets for the babies on the couch.
Two beige and very toned-down (for me) lamps. Yeah, I broke one of the blue ones. And these were $39 each with the shades. So the cheapest I could find at Target with a 3-way switch, which I like because my eyes aren't as young as they used to be.
No pillows to get nosed to the floor, and no magazine shots for sure!
And of course my coffee bar wall. I toned it down quite a bit too.
So folks, this is how I live. There is no glamour to it. Just a woman living alone with her pupsters, trying to be cozy and comfortable.
I'm not styling my life. It is what it is.
