Holy Cow!!! Great find...I lost a great trunk in the divorce...must find a replacement someday (for the trunk > not the ex). Fabulous trunk with the curved top and looks like leather...delightfully rustic.

Here is a great book that speaks to your living room style. Lot's of gorgeous pictures and very inspiring.

Realized my living room was going more African safari than French island, so I had to bring in some tikis and a few odds and ends.....

Thanks Hiltiki, just started taking items from outside and the bedroom and moving em into the living room, it needs more tiki/Polynesian stuff though, got some new stuff coming in and a few lamps, but of course it will never be completely done lol

Looking even more intriguing. I have that same monkey lamp and a second similar matching one. Once I get my Egyptian bedroom done I will post pictures, but they certainly will not be as spectacular as yours. Are you a thrift store or antique store shopper or both? Love how you are blending items together so well. Keep up the great work and posting pics, you are an inspiration!!!

At least you already know how you like things arranged. Best of luck with the move and have fun building your dream world again.
