I'm feeling blessed to be here post-storm, for a beautiful weekend with friends and family.
Before I left home, I was digging through my photo archive for another post, and I came across these images of my living room three ways. These were taken a LONG time ago, when I was experimenting with different art and accessory choices for an overall look/feel. The room feels so unfinished to me now without curtains or some of the other layers that have emerged over time, but it's still fun to see how you can produce various vibes around one major piece, like our brown Bantam couch.
In the end, I'd say the living room has progressed in a more eclectic, sophisticated way, and looking back makes me love what it has become.
I think the lesson is that there's no "right" or "wrong," and playing around with all the pieces you have to work with can sometimes yield surprising results--or teach you what your style really looks like.
Am I alone in this? Or do you play with your stuff this way, too?
