New chairs and side table!

My chairs came from Overstock and I am very pleased. I switched out my old end table from Target to downstairs and traded it in for the one you see in the pic, which is also from Target.I am over the brown/blue color combo (which I've had for four years...mom!) and am heading to more of a cream/chocolate brown/green/metal feel. I want our living room to feel cozy but more eclectic, if that makes sense. I am finally staying away from the more matchy-matchy furniture sets and predictable items I once liked. I guess my taste will always be evolving! I also plan on switching out the shelve for a collection of frames in different sizes...a la the following inspiration pics!Oh, and I am totally rethinking the wall color. It is a pale cream/taupey color but shows up so washed out in the pics. Hmmmm....that may just be the perfect summer job since school is almost out in 3 weeks!

JOI!!

I absolutely love the chairs and table! So classic and chic. Is that the Target table with kind of a mirrored surface? It's gorgeous!!
