A new evening room

I did a last visit at my grandparents house before the news owners came in and I found a few treasures.The lamp on the picture was abandon in the basement and like so many thing , I did have good memories associate with it.After a time of reflexion , I thought I could transform my evening room to match with the lamp and get something more like the sixties.
I start hating the color of my divan(too dark) and cushion so I did covers to change that for a more colorfull and light fabric .The congelator (which can't be place somewhere else)have a cover too with a "pied de poule" style.The advantage of covers is they can be remove easily and wash.The painting was in my grandmother sewing room and never moove from there until I safe it because it was abandon.I get a very similar painting but smaller which will be put in my sewing room.There will be a green curtain with dot on it on the right of the divan which is the entrance of my kitchen , but it's not finish yet.You do not see it on the pictures but I do have a disco ball , a must which was a necessity.
I feel my evening room is more alive and this little changement make me more happy when I look at it. Some people may not like , but my hapiness is the only important thing.
