There is always a story behind a room,
whether it is how the room came together over time
or came together as a result of a visit to a furniture showroom.
This room was about the showroom and a hubby that loves symmetry and “matchy matchy”
When my magazine feature was recently published in French Country Style magazine,
we both noticed something. Well at least he agreed about “that something”
We both said to each other …..”Wow, there’s a lot of wicker in the room!”
That is when he agreed that placing another piece of furniture in the room that is
not wicker would be a good thing. I had the perfect piece in mind
the piece I have been wanting to place in that room for a while.
I replaced the wicker glass topped coffee table with this antique blanket chest
that was in the guest room, a piece that I have had for well over 30 years.
You can read about some interesting things about the chest here.
The fun part about changing or adding a piece in a room
is that you get to create new vignettes and tweak what is in the room.
I added a new piece that I purchased on my field trip to Pennsylvania
with Yvonne last week.
When I picked up this food mold I looked at the price and thought, well O.K. that’s fine,
then Yvonne pointed to the sale sign hanging in the booth . . . all items 40% off . . woo hoo!
More things moved around to create more of a Spring look to the room.
A cute bird planter from HomeGoods perfect for holding my Shirley Poppy Seeds.
There is always a nice reflection in the mirror.
This reflection is of one of the corners of the room.
A reflection of an iron gate and toleware and a treasured vintage red bird cage.
The potting bench displays vintage watering cans and flowers to celebrate Spring.
And a great book of “American Junk”
I really love the antique blanket chest in this room.
It has truly changed the feel somewhat and added another bit of color and warmth to the room.
As a very wise person mentioned, the chest truly anchors the room.
So I say a big “Ahoy” to that!!!
Have a wonderful day and a great start to your week.
You know of course since that blanket chest was transferred to the sunroom from the guest room,
there is a lot of domino effect going on in this house.
