Shuffle, shuffle...again!

I had to do it again... 
 Shuffle that is!

Back in March I rearranged the living room as seen "here" 

Some family dropped in on us one evening and I turned towards the living room to offer them to come sit down and I realized it was too awkward while entering the room- almost as if it were boxed off and ever since then it's been bugging me.   There was only a wedge of room between the sofa and the chair to get in the room otherwise you had to work towards the small red chair to go around- too much work!

Sooo.....
I finally decided to switch the sofa back to the wall area and I flanked the sofa with the two matching end tables and as soon as the 2nd lamp comes in I'll have that part taken care of.

 This room may seem formal but trust me it gets used everyday.  The pillows get moved off while were sitting but I faithfully put them back in place each night!  This comes from basic training after having kids and clearing the room of toys daily!  The sofa is 2 yrs old and the leather recliners are 9 years old which I can hardly believe! 

Even though I used the card table as an accent and it may feel like it's blocking it really isn't- you can still get into the room much easier than before.
I have to put a small accent table next to the red coral chair.  

I swapped the items to use on this table that had been on the Tuscan striped chest that's over to the left with the lamp and pictures that were on here and it all worked out nicely!



On a recent stop I found this candle holder at Pottery Barn- I guess it's discontinued but they had a few pieces from this group in the store and this size seemed right to go near the lamp...whenever it comes!  Actually it did come in but the glaze on the lamp had been done differently so the store where I ordered it from is in contact with the factory about it.  Fortunately it's a US made product and they can do this!

This is the lamp that I'm waiting for the mate to go with.

Whites and Creams have added the updated look I wanted.

One time when I was stacking pillows while moving things around these two ended up together and I decided I liked it so now they reside together on this wing back recliner.


So there you have it....living room shuffled once again!

  1. It looks so nice, Liz! I love those leather chairs. They look so comfortable! And of course I love the white and creams look. That is not what I have in my own home, but it would be if I got busy. It is such a peaceful, welcoming look!

  2. I like it but looks like that table is too high and too big next to the leather recliner. I feel that a small one would be adequate to put a drink on. It would also open up the walkway which is needed. Great work, Liz.

    1. Thanks Ron- perhaps I'll find a better sized piece for that spot but you know me- this will likely change again!

    1. Thank you Nancy! They are too cozy so I usually avoid them because I fall asleep in them too easily!

    1. Thank you Shelia! Since the room is a huge focal point of this house I wanted it to be a little bit upscale but still functional.

  5. I see so many pretties in your room! First, love the sofa and leather chairs and the new grouping. Love your striped chest too! Looks like a great place to rest and watch tv! Very Pretty!

  6. Love it Liz, your shuffle turned out great. All you pieces are beautiful and I love the tones of white and creams.
    Great art over the sofa and I love our recliners. I do the same thing with pillows. Sometime I don't even remember putting them back before going off to bed. It's just a habit!!
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, CM

    1. Yes I do so many things out of habit and then I have to think did I do that or not!

  7. I love the new look Liz...it opens up the room! Would you consider replacing the end table next to the recliner with a small round one or maybe even small nesting tables?

    1. Thank you Martina- I'm considering trying the taller game table to another location in the home. I love it but it has been difficult to place in this room. Nesting tables would be cute- I'll have to be on the lookout for something!

  8. Better look and easier to walk in the room. Love your recliners. We loved the ones we had. I agree, a smaller table would look better than the high one. I still love the pillows.

    1. Thank you Linda! I hate/love the recliners. You always have to make extra room for them!

  9. Traffic patterns are so tricky sometimes, as is decorating with recliners...we have one and always have to take into consideration how much room needs to be behind it when it's "reclined". Your changes look great though. Great lamp and candle holder.

  10. Oh I am so glad that someone else does the shuffle too! :) I adore your leopard pillow.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Such a large and inviting space, Liz. You have so many fabulous pieces that all coordinate so well together, you can never go wrong! Gorgeous, ...again!
    Hugs,

  12. I love this room of yours Liz. It's so large and you can do a lot with it. I hope you have furniture sliders with all the furniture you do. It makes things so much easier around here for sure!

  13. You have a lovely living room! I like the soft colors you've chosen. I do like this arrangement better. I can see why you changed it. I understand how restricting it can be on where you can put furniture and have a nice traffic flow throughout the room and STILL see the tv and fireplace. So many things to consider! I've certainly rearranged mine on several occasions too.

  14. Oh Liz, your living room looks SO pretty and now much easier to enter! I LOVE that animal print pillow. Where did you find that? The lamp is beautiful too. Hope you are having a good weekend!!!

  15. How come you - and more important, us ;) - declare it done and perfect and then a few weeks later a little tweak here, a nice just-happened-to-find amazing piece there and it gets better and better.
    You have such a lovely Home, Liz. All pieces are perfect and very very beautiful in it. I love the colors you use and even animal print - which I hate - turns out really well and not the eye sore some achieve...

    Well done. Enjoy!
