clean home: updated living room

Clean home series: One of my 2012 resolutions included updating and organizing our home.  I am holding myself accountable to this by posting monthly updates on my progress here.

February's project was our formal living room.   I loved the sofa we bought from Mitchell Gold a while back.  It kinda sorta needed a little something to spruce it up...

Enter etsy.com where I found these pillow covers at a reasonable price.  I loved the patterns and the colors.  I could not decide between yellow and green so I bought a pair of each.  At the last minute, I decided on a simpler pattern for the yellow, but the colors were essentially the same.

I also added new floor and table lamps from Crate and Barrel.  I was drawn to the minimalist style of this lamp (in contrast with the details on the pillows).  

The updated look.

This is my favorite spot in the room.  I call it my reading area where I put my go through my magazines. (Trevor Chair from Pottery Barn, Twisty table from viva terra) [Note to self: need to go through magazines for recycling/donation box)

February is done.  Whew.  I think it's still a work in progress and may need to add a few more green touches here and there.  I like the way it looks now, though.

In case you are wondering, here's our January project.
