Project Simplify:: The Lounge

Last week I went through the lounge and simplified it. There wasn't a great deal to cull as I only really needed to sort through the two drawers that are part of the coffee table. Today I thought I'd share more about our plans for the room.

We borrowed the lounge from my in laws when we first moved into this house and had plans to upgrade down the track. Maybe to something like this? But I am yet to decide. The coffee table will be changed to this and I'm sure I have mentioned our plans to install white plantation blinds in our lounge before, but that will only be happening when we win the lottery at this stage.

Our coffee table is home to our Valentines books in February, but usually has a Project Life album that I am working on somewhere as well.

Inside one of the drawers are our Bibles and the Kid's devotion book.

And in the drawer on the other side are some puzzles, card games and problem solving books. Excuse the marks on the lounge and coffee table I took this photo before I had wiped them both down.

The mantel area is our favourite spot to play during the day. We have a box of Cruz's hot wheel cars and a few baskets of baby toys to play with. The mirror sitting above the mantel is only temporary and I am hoping to purchase one that is the same width as the mantel and a lot taller after we have finished our laundry renovations.

Has anyone else been simplifying around their home recently? I'd love to see pictures of your hard work. Next on my list is the kitchen.


  1. Just gorgeous as usual Leanne!! I'm actually hoping to get that exact coffee table to start updating our theatre room for my birthday in a few weeks!! It's just looking gorgeous - can't wait to see the end result!

  2. Oh Tammy, how exciting!! I'd love to see pictures if you get it. I'm saving to get it in July. Fingers crossed ;)

  3. The watch has been distilled down to its most useful state, with very rolex replica that is extraneous. I can understand the choice of a polished case for what is ostensibly a tool watch, but it seems to work well in the photos both here in the replica watches and in the live photos below. I also want to mention that throughout the article the rolex replica silicone is used, where I believe it should be silicon. Silicon is 2017 replica watches used in the semiconductor industry while silicone is a polymer used in, among other things, breast implants. Sorry to be pedantic, but the replica watches uk scientist in me can help it. This motif, popular on watch dials and replica watches is depicted here surrounded by roiling multicolored snakes, all hand painted on woolly mammoth ivory. The watch is shown on a custom hand tooled and stitched leather strap.
