SUMMER, re-arrangement!

DFID (c) 2016

In yet another incarnation of my personal living space, I wanted to switch out some furniture and accessories to give a more "Summer" look...

I simply switched the placement of the chesterfield sofa with the white matelassé' covered settee....then I decided to center the bust in the window, between the two topiary trees...as you can see I'm still using things I've had for years now.  The chesterfield now functions as a chaise, which I like for watching television or reading, and creates an asymmetric look...and in a nod to Sister Parish, I used my grandmother's quilt as a throw.

Looking west, towards the small dining area, still pretty much the same as it was...

All pictures were taken with my phone.  In this shot, to the left of the floor lamp, you can see a collage I made way back in 1978 !   DF *****
