New natural box pleated slipcovers to lighten up the brick red sofa.
Changed the darker and heavier pillow covers to lighter ones that I already had stored.
Covered the red chair, too and left the leather chair uncovered
Changed the accessories on the mantel to white potted plants, wicker chargers, green plates, bird house and bird for a fresher and layered display for the warm season. I had all these things.
Antique wicker tray filled with antique and flea market treasures and design books.
The tray is from a local antique store. The shoe form and antlers are from a local flea market
and the old bottles were found many years ago by Mr. Savvy on his childhood home site.
Fern added to the fireplace, which is a southern thing, and flowers added to the coffee table.
I keep forgetting to mention that Mr. Savvy designed and built the mantel all by himself. He also replaced the original white marble tile with grey veining to the new marble tiles I chose. He is very proud of that mantel.
I love the way the room feels now. Don't be surprised if I make some more changes since I may want to change some of the displays on the built-ins with fresher looks. I am sure I will find some things at the antique and flea markets that just may want to come home with me.

I am joining Transformation Thursday over at The Shabby Chic Cottage and Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home and Beautiful Life Friday at The Inspired Room so be sure and click on the link and check out all the other transformations. I am sure you will be inspired as I have and it will make you want to make some changes. Don't say I didn't warn you. All this inspiration can lead to some serious shopping addictions and room renovations.
And now I found a new party to join. The Mantel Party over at The Nesting Place. Please check out each of these party goers, too!
