A Big Modern Update

If you remember several months ago I had a design inspiration post for the new house. It was a combination of French and transitional style. I called it a modern take on Old World style. You can find it here. My home is a modern French country style, but I like a dose of modern mixed in. I decided it was getting a bit too traditional in the living room even though I loved the way it was turning out.

I set out to find a big, abstract painting for the short wall next to the fireplace and I found it! I absolutely love this painting. I thought it would be very polarizing, but surprisingly everyone has "said" they love it. I'm really okay if they don't. It's not like I painted it!

There is a bit of a hiccup to overcome with the thermostat in the way. I'm still waiting to hear if we can move it a foot to the right so the painting can be centered on the wall. If not, I have alternate plans of adding height with a chair and a sconce to the right side. I'd rather have two chairs for extra seating instead of one chair so hopefully it can be moved.

And Mario likes it, too.

It wouldn't be right not to include a photobomb from Mario. Doesn't he look handsome with his haircut? There are still plenty of things to do in this room, but it's so close to being finished. My list gets shorter by the week!
