I finally undecorated the large great room tree and the space always looks so different after the
tree is removed. The item that was previously in the space found its way back; however, me, being me,
could not leave it alone.
I started experimenting with some different looks.
Today, you will see how I gave this area three different looks.
I started by moving the antique French Commode that was in the Great Room, to this space.
This area is right off the foyer next to the stairwell.
The antique French Commode fits very well in this space, however, I am not quite sure if this
is the look I want.
I kept the vignette pretty much the same, using vintage ironstone and great vintage books.
A plant has taken the place of the lamp.
I guess I need to show you what was there before!
A pretty black and gold planter that I purchased from The Bombay Company years ago.
Faux ferns fill the planter and I find many people touching these to see if they are indeed real.
The stairwell wall is going to get a bit of a makeover, so I thought I needed a change in this
Can you guess the next item I am experimenting with for this space?
Yes, the vintage split oak bench that was in my dining room bay window area.
I added my antique French boot forms and a demijohn next to the bench for a little more interest.
So what do you think? . . . Which look would you choose? Do you prefer the original look of the
gold and black planter, or the vintage appeal of the split oak bench?
My hubby gave his thumbs up for the vintage bench. I am leaning that way too.
Which look is your favorite?
Have a great day hopefully filled with sunshine both from the sun and from the heart.
