The ottoman is from TJMaxx/Homegoods as well as the pillows. The photo holder is from Pottery Barn.  Instructions for the  wreath on the rear wall can be found here
The desk and chair belonged to my uncle.  The reupholstered rocker I found in an antique store and I covered the desk chair in the same fabric.  The ottoman is from TJMaxx/Homegoods and the teddy bears were fashioned from my mother's mink stole.

After
The fireplace screen, wooden end table and wood bowl are all from TJMaxx/Homegoods.  The living room set is from Macy'sThe green afghan pattern info can be found here.
The accessories on the sofa table as well as the lamps with suede shades and the hanging picture were finds from TJMaxx/Homegoods and Marshalls.
 
The votive holder on the wall is from Pottery Barn and the candle holder stand is from TJMaxx/Homegoods.
This end table is from the Lillian Vernon catalog and it's drawers provide perfect storage for candles and the like.

Our living room make over involved paint and a new couch and love seat.  We chose Benjamin Moore's "Hillsborough Beige" which succeeded in giving the room a whole new look.
