Rejuvenating Our Living Room

Last year my wife and I planned on making minor changes to our living room.  The curtains needed a facelift as well as the furniture.  We set up a budget for that project—new curtains—and last Monday, Importadora Selecta came to our house and installed the new curtains. Voila!

To capture the event, I took several shots.  For the occasion, I also purchased a fresh bouquet of flowers, mostly roses.  The change was dramatic and there are bright smiles on our faces.  Changes in the house are always welcomed.  This was one of them.

Pictures shot with a Fujifilm X-30 mirrorless camera without a flash.  Only the lights of the living room were on.  Good Day.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures of our new changes to our living room. Flowers are nice to have around and cheer up the spirits.

    Thank you for your nice comments.


  2. I really like the curtains, and the shots combining them with the flowers are lovely. It’s always a delight when one of our plans works out as we hoped — or even better!

  3. I elected to mix flowers with the new curtains because they are lushly decorated with large red roses, just like the roses on the living room table. I thought they would be a good mix. I’m glad you enjoyed the composition.

    We have also decided to have a fresh supply of flowers every month to lift our spirits. That’s as much as we can afford right now. Each bouquet of flowers has a price tag of $6.19 at a supermarket nearby.

    We are also thinking of growing our own flowers, but that will take some time.
