'Round the House we Go

While things are still spruced up around here for all the wedding-related visitors, I snapped a few more photos. This time of our living room! I moved some furniture around and finally hung a few things on the walls, even though this room will get a paint overhaul soon (white paint, of course!). It's probably our favorite room in the house, with the fabulous morning light it gets and the way it opens to the dining room and entryway, so I wanted to make it into a comfortable, welcoming space.

We call this our "Danish Room," since almost everything in it came directly from Denmark. The sofas and chairs are by Hans Wegner, an iconic Danish furniture designer. They sat in my grandparents' home in Denmark for as long as I can remember, and I was lucky enough to have a space for them and move them into our new home last summer. The hutch is also from my grandparents' home - it was a wedding gift to them. And even the rug came from Denmark! So needless to say, this whole room is a very special place for me. We plan to eventually redo the chair and sofa cushions, which are ever-so-slightly worn :) Even the artwork over the hutch is Denmark-related - it's a photograph of the Copenhagen skyline that Ben gave me as a gift years ago.

The lampshade was a find on one of my favorite pop-up sale websites, One Kings Lane. The lamp base was in my stash, and luckily it worked nicely with the new shade.

This is the view looking in from our dining room. I think it will all tie together nicely once the living room is painted white.
