Newly Painted Sitting Room

Hello friends!
I have been so busy this summer.
I am ready for fall and it's cooler temps.  

I finally got around to painting my sitting room.
I decided to paint it a pale gray called Gray Pearl from Martha Stewart and had it colored match to Behr from The Home Depot. 

Maria from Dreamy Whites  used this color in her living room and I loved it every time I saw it.

Here is the before color, I loved this when I painted it in 2004 but boy have my tastes changed since then!
I also painted this huge mirror. It is now Decorator's White by Behr.

I love fresh flowers, especially roses.

Shabby French.
I love old ceiling tins, this one is just leaning against the wall so I can move it.

Turquoise table.

Paris love.....

My shabby green bistro chair is still one of my favorite pieces.

I love this jute rug purchased from Tracey at French Larkspur. I have always loved it and finally ordered it.
You can see it here.
This is my farmhouse vintage corner.

Notice my candles on my chandy are leaning? I put the chandy outside while I was painting and the candles melted! I need to change those out :)

Another favorite is this Paris table runner from Shellagh Ticking and Toile.
You can see it  here.

I have ordered some more things from her and I can barely wait for them to get here! I will be showing you when they do.

Here is the mirror painted and an overview of the room. I am so loving the new paint with my shabby things. I am sitting on this love seat right now typing this post!

I hope you enjoyed my tour! I have more rooms to show you soon!
