The cedar chest in the bay window was made by the homeowner's husband, and we wanted to
keep it in that room.
She already had some great fabric elements---
pillows and a throw.
So what could we do to make it "feel" better?
We moved the cedar chest and used it in a grouping to create a focal point with the shelf.
We added some height and natural elements to the shelf.
We brought the "count your blessings" sign under the shelf
and with the taller lamp it makes a nice unit.
The Curtains make a HUGE difference in softening the room.
The homeowner found some fabric on clearance
and cut it into three strips.
She just hung them on little iron posts above the window.
Wow --- it really warms up the room!
The shelf and the picture feel a little "high up" on the wall.
Notice how we brought the picture above the couch --- down --- and added a couple of candle holders on each side.
It feels more as a "unit" with the couch.
The cedar chest and shelf grouping makes a nice focal point in this Living Room.
We found another lamp and turned them on ---it really brings "LIFE" to the space.
That is just one more layer in creating a Cozy atmosphere.
