I realized I hadn’t really shown you my living room since we made a few updates to it, so today I’m sharing new pictures (along with sources at the end of the post).
The major update is that we sold our round ottoman (see the old pictures here) and replaced it with an actual coffee table.
We loved the ottoman and it was great for when we had littler kids but we had been wanting more space for drinks and books, especially because there really isn’t room for end tables with the sectional. Also, our older kids are at the age where they like to play games and color in here. Its been nice to be able to accommodate that now!
I purged some of the books and rearranged just a few things on the bookshelves. The bottom few shelves house kids toys and books in baskets and bins. I love having toy storage in the living room. More on that later this week.
Even though I don’t really do seasonal decorating, I did find a few branches I liked at Hobby Lobby and those pumpkins on the mantle are real ones from the grocery store. A few of the pillow covers have been changed out too to add to a cozier fall-ish feeling (the weather here in TX is finally starting to match too, hooray!)
Like I shared in this post, I brought down the ottoman from our youngest son’s room and I love having it in here now. I keep that little side table empty. Its so nice to have empty space, its just inviting.
Have I mentioned there used to be a window over the fireplace? That was weird, you can read about that here.
Here are a few of the sources for the room:

So that’s it for the living room! One quick little fun thing… I’ve just recently joined Periscope and yesterday afternoon as Paul was taking these pictures I did a quick little broadcast of behind the scenes of the shoot. Find me by searching for @thehouseoffigs! The broadcast is still available for 24 hours after its created. My camera work was a little shaky- sorry about that. Still figuring the whole thing out. Are any of you on Periscope? Come find me!!
