Beach Themed Great Room

It has almost been a year since we remodeled our kitchen and great room!  
Here was the before & After...
This is how it looks one year later...
We did sell our old leather set and we moved our sectional from our living room into the great room.
You can see how our living room turned out HERE.
I did buy a new chair...
I found it at Homegoods and I LOVE everything about it!

I also added some ottomans...
It was so hard to find an ottoman that looked good in the space that wasn't a fortune.  
It's amazing to me how an ottoman can be as expensive as a couch!
I found these at Target for $39.00.  
The coral pictures were in the clearance section at Target and I got the anchor from Homegoods.
I purchased the mirror from Rod Works and I love how it looks like a port hole in a ship!
This little corner took me forever to get it to feel right.  
I had this whale above the lamp...
It looks better above our door.
 Then I had a single picture above the lamp and it was too small.
I found this birdcage shelf at Gordmans... 
I found the frames, but wasn't too sure what I should put in them.  They ended up hanging there empty for about a month.  
Then I  had these prints made... 
They bring back good memories from a vacation we had taken to California a few years ago. 
 I think the room is finally complete!
Just because I always love a good before and after here you go!
 I love how bright it feels!
Now, if there was only a way to turn our house into beachfront property!
