it's the little things

As I mentioned in a previous post, Mr. Matty and I have been needing a little updating around the house. It's amazing what a few little changes can do to bring new life to a space. 

 Here we had a new outlet put over this space and added this Sputnik chandelier. We instantly feel like the space is warmer and more inviting. (side note: when we bought this chandelier, we ran into Sara McLachlan singing the Sara Bareilles song that was playing overhead on the store speakers. I love Nashville.)

 It's amazing what a rug can do to make an open space feel like a room. 

We added some more seating so that everyone now has a place to sit.

 We used to have our TV on top of our mantle, but after seeing one too many Martha Stewart mantle displays, I wanted my mantle back. Mr. Matty surprised me one night when I got home by moving the TV to the bookshelves. We love that the TV is not the focus of the room anymore.

What are some easy updates that you have made to your living spaces?
