Making Progress

I know I've only really been blogging about the living room recently, but that's what we're focusing on right now. So, hopefully you can hang on with me as we complete this room before we move on to the next one!

Our sofa for this room was delivered this weekend. I'm really happy with it, it's really comfortable and pretty too!  It's ivory velvet and will look great with our curtains. I had originally planned to put the sofa in front of the window, before I picked out the sofa and had it delivered. However, after seeing it in front of the window, it sticks out too far into the doorway and walkway of the room. So, I switched the plan around and now the sofa will be on the long wall of the room, below a gallery wall of frames.  Here are some pictures:

We also installed the new chandelier for this room on Saturday! This was quite a bit of work, taking down the huge old fan was not fun, but we were really impressed with everything when the chandelier was up and sparkling.

I ordered the fabric for the curtains and I'm hoping it will be shipped soon so we can make the curtains and get them hung. I think this will have a big impact on making all of the room elements make sense!

I'm still on the hunt for the perfect chairs to go in front of the window.... and I'll keep searching. We may start working on the bookcases next.  I'm debating on doing something like these built-ins by Centsational Girl, but we'll see.
