mixing old and new

our new sectional arrived earlier this week for the den and it has taken some getting used to.  not that i don't love it (because i do!) but i always have a fear when incorporating multiple new items in one room, that i'm creating a space that looks 'vanilla'.

for me, there needs to be a balance of old and new pieces.  nothing quite beats an old, original re-purposed gem that is one of a kind.

that said, there's a time and place for new. 

as i was looking for ways to incorporate a little something to give this space a unique factor, rob's brother saved the day again with an original piece of art.  it used to hang above the old sofa in our more formal living room, but i'm really loving how it pops against the white walls in the den. 

more photos to come!

looks great! I need a new couch in a bad way. You'll have to give me some couch-buying pointers soon.
