Livingroom Switcharoo that didn't work!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Remember my post about adding some color to my livingroom?  I moved two floral chairs from the bedroom in and took out the white wingbacks.  I ended up with this look....
I tried it for two days, a long time in my book.  Ya know?
So, now it's back to this....

I can't live without my whites and silvers....
I love my mercury glass collection!

I love my curvy sofa.  I've had it for at least 12 years and I never tire of it....um, that's odd.

Cannot live without toile I tell ya!


Can't live without shells either....

Mr. Sissie just rolls his eyes when I get in these moods.
I wait until he's not around and get the furniture sliders and go to town!

I'm happy now, or at least until I look at one of your blogs
and want to change everything around again.
Ah, the inspiration here in blogland is wonderful but can be hazardous to your health!!!!

~~hugs~~

I have done the same thing. I will change an entire room around just to change it back just the way it was:) Both ways look beautiful in your home. You have a knack for decorating:)

Sissie,
I do the same thing. I think I can't stand it this way another minute. Change everything around, not like that either. Change it back to the way I started and love it. Maybe we just like the exercise?

Sissie, I have that same pumpkin man as the one in your header! Love him! Your home is so lovely -- I don't think you could go wrong. :)

Abby's Garden said...

I love your whites and silver, it's very romantic and beautiful! I'm jealous of your mercury glass collection:)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Sissie I am smiling right now. I love the look of your room but I don't think I could live in that. Just not me, oh it's beautiful but would not look like that for me. So I love that you try but go back to who you are! I love that we are all so different but somehow the same.
Hugs,
Linda

I left a comment and then right when I hit the x button to leave I saw the word pop up that I have to put in. As I was saying I understand you having to have it feel right for you. I love that sofa and the large toile pillows are gorgeous. Did you make them?

CHERI said...

All white always looks so pretty in pictures but I don't think my hubby and I could live with it daily. We love color! Your room does look lovely though...and love the curvy sofa.

Theresa said...

Oh I do that too! I would be hanging on to that couch for a long time, it's gorgeous and I LOVE those toile pillows, more gorgeousness! The fact that you call your hubby Mr.Sissie made me wonder... does he read your blog? ;) too cute! Blogland is fabulous, I can go from Swedish sparse with all of it's whites and greys to industrial chic to bright and cheerful. makes my head spin I tell ya! Have a great night, Theresa xoxo

Whatever makes you happy, Sissie!...it could be worse, much worse!! LOL!!

debi said...

Sissie, your home is absolutely dreamy!! Love the whites!!!!

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

You're not kidding the inspiration is abundant in Blogland! When I saw the picture with the floral chairs I thought, "Oooo that looks good". Then I saw the other chairs and thought, "Oooo that looks good". Then I saw the curvy sofa and thought, "OOOOO I want me one of those"!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Oh, I am soooo guilty of that! Thinking I want to change something and go through all the trouble to make the change only to turn aroung in a few days and put most if not all of it back the way it was! It looks great Sissie. I love your mercury glass collection!

Both looks are great but I understand totally. I too wait until my husband is not home to do my major furniture moving. Thank goodness for those furniture sliders and my 8 year old son with the muscules.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

You stick with what works for you, Sissie! I think it looks great and I love your toile pillows! I got a sneak peek at Ballard Designs holiday merchandise today and they have some mercury glass items they will be selling.

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

I loved those floral chairs in the livingroom but I can understand your need to change things around. I used to get excited when my teachers would move our desks around in elementary school! How weird is that? lol I guess that was my first indication of my need to decorate.~Hugs, Patti

agypsyangel said...

Beautiful both ways. I like to get the hubbie to help me..he loves it (or maybe not)
Have a great day.

Pamela said...

LOve the toile pillows Sissie!

I laughed at what you said about waiting for your hubby to leave before changing things...I'm the same way!! I waited for him to leave today and switched a lamp from another room. He'll notice next week!!!

Chrissy said...

Your so funny...but it looks amazing!! I know what you mean though sometimes you see something on a blog and you just have to change things up! Hope you are well,Chrissy

My Shabby Roses said...

Sissie, those chairs look nice too! Your couch is beautiful it looks so comfy. It's nice to have a few things around the house to change out when you want to. Glad you're happy with your look it is BEAUTIFUL!

Denise said...

The last time I couldn't stand something another minute, I about broke my back moving an oak desk.:) I think you're right, I love your neutrals. That sofa is to die for. I can see why you still love it so much.

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Sissie girl,
First of all, that sofa looks so squishy & comfy. secondly, BF (before kids) I used to love moving furniture around from room to room. Everyone used to joke about how our house always looked different. Not so much anymore. I agree tho, those silvers, creams & whites are gorgeous & very rich. Third, your last post...I,m thinking grayish white. Oh, & one more thing, I love you tons. your comments always make feel like a million bucks. Lisa

Allison said...

Your house is gorgeous...so elegant, romantic, comfortable and classy! Anyway you decide to move things it looks great. I love the all white. Your collection of mercury glass is beautiful. i have only a few pieces. I am in love with your toile pillows. I think I've commented on them a few times now. They are stunning with the small ruffle. I'm a sucker for toile. I do the same thing when my husband leaves on a business trip. I move all the furniture all over the place. I think he wonders about me at times.

Amy Kinser said...

Oh Sissie, I think anything you do is lovely.

I tend to find after I take a photo of something is when I really find out if I like it or not. A photograph really does speak a lot of words. (sometimes it says "change me quickly")

Lululiz said...

Lol, you are funny. I really did like the two floral chairs in your living room. Still, I like the white ones just as much. Whatever you do, your home is just exquisite.

My name is PJ. said...

I like it both ways, Sissie. I think it's great that with subtle changes, you can totally change the vibe in the room.

Menfolk will never understand a woman's need to tweak and change her surroundings. We smart women know it's much easier to accomplish when they've left the house....

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Sissie, I think it's pretty both ways!!! Your living room is just gorgeous! hugs~~~ Daphne

Nancy's Notes said...

Sissy, I love your dreamy whites, the entire room is just exquisite and so very elegant looking! Oh I know what you mean about the Mr.!

Enjoy your day~

Paula said...

Ah I love it with your white chairs too! I can see me changing them with the seasons with a slipcover for a pop of color once in awhile. Oh who am I kidding? lol:)

www.MaisonStGermain.com said...

Hi again Sissie:) I am already a follower of your and just love your blog. As to your question about Sophia, my cat, I really don't know what kind of cat she is because we adopted her. She was feral and living on the streets and someone was kind enough to bring her and her siblings to be adopted. She is the sweetest and love my dogs and chickens:) lol

Your home is just gorgeous!!! I wish I could comment more but my internet is really slow on your blog! Sometimes I'm not even sure my comment goes through sometimes Miss Sissie!!! I loved that pink bed in a post below too! Take care!!

Sherry said...

I thought your change was lovely but it was still lovely when you changed it back. You gotta go with makes your home feel like home. You do have a beautiful home and beautiful blog.

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Sissie,
I agree with you and would've changed it back too, love the almost all white. I agree with you on that dreamy, curvy sofa too... it's beautiful!

I want to thank you for your kind comment about my sweet cat, Gigi. It means very, very much to me and I'll carry it in my heart. Thank you, Sissie.

Hi Sissie,
You know what? I'm agreein with you! I like it better this way too even though I liked it the other way as well. Love those hi-backs and your sweet sofa with the toile pillows! And I love your mercury glass collection too! Now, if I could just decide what to do with my mirror! If you happen to stop by, I would love your opinion!

Blesings,
Sandi
