A Few New Touches

While I was waiting for my kitchen floor to be finished I decided to make a few minor changes around the house.  Below is Mary Carol Garrity's stairway gallery.    I love it and was inspired.
Okay so It's not exactly hers but it's a start. 
 From Left to Right,  The boy in the straw hat I had first seen at my friend Catherine's home.  I found this copy on ebay and framed it.  Although his coat is green on mine and the original is blue.  Then below is a painting by John Singer Seargent, Diana Moses Botkin "Sweet Dream", a portrait study by Three Potato Four and my lovely lady from Knoxville.  I have no idea who painted her or who she was.
Don't know how far up I will go but for now I am pleased.
I really love my wall of portraits.
Below new jute oval rug for our bedroom.
And in my sunroom I finally figured out the placement of pieces.


I ordered another jute natural rug for this room.  I feel that there is too much green and the rug is a bit busy and distracting.
Although the chairs are sage gingham and the toile sofa is black, the chairs have toile behind the back and I think the green blends with the touches of green in the room.  But the new rug will neutralize it a bit.
I still can't believe I fixed the cushion in less than ten minutes just with two large pieces of foam from my local fabric store.

Your house looks lovely! It is really nice to have different paintings by the stairs as they give the place an impressive ambiance. Also, your bedroom and sunroom looks very comfy because of its light color combinations. And it also looks like you have a great view outside too! That is really great combination, Lee! It is definitely nice to go home in a house like that. :-)
