Living room face lift

Before we bought our home we lived in a 2300 sf townhouse. So moving into a 4500sf home was a bit of a shocker when the only furniture we had (besides beds and a kitchen table) fit perfectly in our tiny front room.

 Ever since we moved into this house this room bothered me.
I always had a million other projects to be done that I never got around to making this room mine. So I now finally did a few things to brighten this room up. 

 I only changed a few things but it was enough to make me truly love this room.
First I put up some silk drapes.

 Next I made some pillows cases and covered up the ugly brown and green pillows from before.

I love the chrysanthemum pillows. 
They were fairly easy to make and they really brighten up the room. 
Here is a link to the pattern for the mum pillows. 
Amy Butler designed them! 

I love fake flowers. 
Actually I love real ones but I hate that they die, so I only buy fake flowers. 
These are probably my favorite one, peonies!

There is my living room. Not much but definitely a start.
