Living Rooms without coffee tables

If you’re furnishing your first living room, there’s often a mental check list that comes to mind. Sofa? Check. Chair? Check. Coffee table? Check.

Pillow covers are the hardest working tool in your decorating arsenal. A well placed pillow can ‘pouf!’ give your room a whole new color palette.
