~editing and making things lighter in the living room~

I have been cleaning all day, in fact I am still in my PJ's.
I did a little editing in our living room, trying to lighten things up.
I love how bright and clean it looks now!
I probably took way too many photos.....

 A lot stayed the same, I just edited a lot out.
The framed photos are from our neighborhood in the early 1900's~love them.
I framed them in matching Ikea Ribba frames.
 The burlap pillows are from Restoration Hardware, the furry pillow from Haley's Cottage 
{on my sidebar}
and the latest addition to my pillow addiction is the grey Ralph Lauren ones from TJ Maxx.
 I also just picked up this candle holder at Marshalls.
The flower concrete piece is from Cottage White at Ruffles and Rust Square.
Books I had.
 A couple of my favorite coffee table books.....
 Looking into the kitchen above, and dining room below.




 I hope you are having a great day! 
xoxo

Beautiful! I'm in the process of redecorating our living room and your lamps would be perfect. Could you tell me where you got them? Thanks so much.

I am a huge fan of your decorating style.
I am in the processes of decorating a completely bare room and have been going back and forth on if I should get a white sofa. After seeing your pics and how fresh it makes the room, you made my mind up :)
(although I do have a two year old son and another boy on the way...) ha!

I did want to ask- is that a white sofa or more of an off-white / beige color?

Thanks again for always being inspiring!
