~what I would add or subtract from this space~

My mother in law, as I have mentioned before, lives in Mexico most of the year in a darling condo overlooking the ocean.

She's in the mood to spruce things up a bit, so she sent me this photo and asked for my help.


So here is what I am suggesting.
I love the love seat and chair. The rattan adds the perfect amount of texture and the cream is a good neutral.
I think punching up the love seat and chair with some more colorful pillows would look great. The ones on there now are fine, but they are kind of scratchy, so I would get rid of those altogether or use them on the patio.
I love the different tones in the glass balls on the coffee table. I want to see more of those colors in the room.

I would add 3 of these sailor blue pillows with down inserts, 2 on the love seat and one on the chair.


Then on the love seat I would add a lumbar pillow in the middle.

I love this one:


I would do a different arrangement on the coffee table as well. 
I would gather everything in a large rectangular tray for starters.
Something dark to tie in the wicker of the furniture frames.
I think the glass balls would look great either floating in the tray with a gorgeous candle in the center.




And I'd add a stack of a few fun books for a pop of color, something to do with being in a tropical place.







I think filling up the bottom shelf of the coffee table with stacks of hardcover books is a great idea!

For the side table I'd opt for a lighter brighter lamp with a drum shade.

I like the height of this one.


And a linen shade or something with texture:


She could do a small flower arrangement on this table as well, or just simply add some coasters.

And finally, I would do a nice simple gallery wall with just a few pieces above the love seat, positioned lower than the piece that is there now.

I love the blues in this piece. 


And the colors in this! They all tie into the glass balls!

And a horizontal piece to finish it out.

I'd maybe add in one or two smaller pieces depending how it looks once up on the wall.

The other side of the love seat, not shown in this photo, I would add a big basket with a huge tall tropical plant in it!






And even though she didn't ask, I would paint those walls white! 

There's my 2 cents, I hope she likes it!
xoxo

This space really needs an area rug as well!

This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 8TH OF APRIL 2017, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful great spell caster called DR Omoluyi on the forum. I never believed it, because I've never heard nor learnt anything about magic before. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about spells, not until i visited ( doctoromoluyispelltemple@gmail.com ) and behold he did it for me and restored my marriage of 6 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me within 12 to 16 hours just as I have read on the forum.. I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging me for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR Omoluyi, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. Visit him today via Email on ( doctoromoluyispelltemple@gmail.com ). Am Lori Dante by name.
