Some Changes in Florida Living Room

My granddaughter, AJ and I just got back from a Western Caribbean cruise.
 We joined all my siblings and mom and my cousin from the Philippines with her son and daughter and her family. After the cruise, I was able to pass by our home in Florida and my cousin and her family came along and got to spend a few days with me. We had so much fun bonding and just chatting about pretty much everything. After they left, I started to redecorate the living room.
 
Next 2 photos were before the changes. I thought the painting above the sofa was a bit small especially with the high ceilings.


I found this pair of light tin plaques on Joss and Main and I thought they would go well with the rug that has round patterns on it. The colors coordinate with the rug, painting and pillows so well.

 At first, I thought the plaques were too long so I did not buy them when I first saw them listed on the on line store, but then, they were listed again just before I left Natchez. I decided to get them hoping they would arrive while I was here and I could see how they would look. Luckily they arrived yesterday. I figured I could always put them somewhere else, even on the back porch if they did not look good but I think they look ok here. What do you think?
 Another item that I just bought is the round ottoman above, which arrived just in time also, while I am here. I think it matches the little cabinet that I have near the dining room below.
 



 
 
Our Florida home is entirely different than our MS home. I enjoy decorating both of them in 2 different ways and I love them both so much. Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate the hostesses of all the memes that I join.

I'm sure you had a fab time with that pretty Young lady AJ is! I'm happy you had a afb time with all your family too.
I love turquoise in Flo. and paired with Brown it makes a great combo! I did some twiking in my home too, as I tend to neglect the living room somewhat, as I'm never there, lol!
Hugs,
FABBY
