FIRST, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK KELLY OVER AT DESIGNTIES AS SHE WAS THE ONE THAT INTRODUCED THIS TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY OR ART TO US ON A HOME DECOR FORUM. THE WOMAN THAT DOES IT LIVES IN NIAGARA FALLS CANADA, STARTED OFF AS A SMALL BUSNINESS BUT IT IS NOW BOOMING. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT, YOU CAN SPELL ANY WORD YOU WISH, FROM FAMILY NAMES TO INSPIRATIONAL WORDS. EACH PHOTOGRAPH REPRESENTS A LETTER, WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO SPELL WHAT YOU WISH. I WOULD SAY SHE HAD A BRILLIANT IDEA! I CHOSE TO SPELL THE WORD RELAX, IF YOU LOOK CLOSE YOU WILL SEE THE LETTER IN EACH PICTURE. YOU CAN GO ON HER WEBSITE AND PLAY AROUND, CHANGING LETTERS AND SPELLING WORDS AT. www.alphabetphotography.ca, its lots of fun! WE HUNG OURS IN THE FRONT ENTRANCE WHICH IS ALSO VISIBLE FROM WHERE I SIT AND FOR ANYONE WHO SITS ON THE SOFA

I have this rather unattractive chair, BUT it must stay and i much prefer it in this spot, i dont use the other furniture in the living room as i have difficulty rising from furniture, so this brown chair is a lift chair. So i was wanting to put my cabinet back in this spot like it was in the first picture, trying to make a focal point as its the first wall you see coming into our home.
As you will see in the pictures the mirror needs to move over and be centred above the cabinet, BUT AND ITS A BIG BUT i think the wall will look odd as it will have this big bare spot off to the left of the cabinet. I can't put a plant there like my before picture, which balanced things, i need the space behind my chair for it to recline AND the cabinet cant slide over any further or my chair wont work.
Should i just forget it and remove the cabinet, any suggestions would be welcomed. Oh and there is no other floor plan i can do, tried them all and this one works best
IS THERE ANY HOPE? bahhhha wahhhhhha

With this forever changing livingroom of mine, i think i finally realized what i love, want and need from this room..............SERENE, CALM AND PEACEFUL. Escpecially with the ongoing stress that lurks under this roof. I think i knew this all along, but just kept fighting it, i love red, orange or other vibrante colors but when i use them, they dont work for me emotionally...does that make sense? When i add soft and pretty, like the flowers below, i feel so relaxed. Now that being said, i like to mix soft and pretty with medium to dark peices of furniture, or sephia pictures framed in black and white frames, pehaps it may be deemed wrong in the design world, but it feels right in my world and i have decided that its okay. Our sofa is a moss green color, so i intend to add soft blues, greens and creams as those colors make me laugh, and of course my zebra print stool will be in the mix. So i saw these candle holders and candles, i just couldnt resist....love the colors and gotta love the bird. I havent removed the wrapper yet and still need to decide where im putting them, but will post when they are in their new home.
These are my thoughts for the day

I do realize that its only Febuary, but i needed a little something to take away the winter blahs, and what better than some flowers. So i added a little softness to the end table, makes me smile when i walk into the room. For me, flowers mark the beginning of a new season, and an end to a long cold season.
