By now, most of you know that I have been purging, packing and staging my house.
I am methodically moving from one room to another.
The Great Room . . . . done!
Then on to the Sunroom . . . and I can now say . . . . done!
So here is The Lighter Sunroom.
Four pieces of furniture have been removed from this room.
Starting with the end table that was next to the chair.
The table was replaced by a seagrass basket to hold a few magazines.
Blue and white accents remain in the sunroom.
The plant stand that was under the above set of windows
was relocated to the Great Room.
Hydrangeas cut from my slowly blooming bushes fill the ironstone bowl.
The potting bench was angled in the corner
and now it is centered on the adjacent wall.
The large corn plant shuffled across the rooms from the foyer.
I had my collection of vintage flower pots displayed on the shelves of the bench.
To gain a less cluttered look, these flower pots have been packed away
and one item has been placed on each shelf.
Here’s a peek of what happened on the other side of the room.
In this area, there was a tall narrow chest
and an ottoman.
The tall narrow chest is now in my son’s home.
I am happy that he was able to use it, as I have had that piece for at least 40 years!
The ottoman was relocated to another area of the house.
I replaced the chest with a topiary and my antique French Wine basket.
The wine basket was a find from my trip to France.
Both the basket and topiary were originally in the Great Room area.
There was a blank space left on the wall when we took away the tall narrow chest.
I hung a framed stained glass piece that my sister had gifted to me years ago.
I actually contemplated bringing back the pie safe in this room,
but I resisted …. keeping to my goal of a lighter space.
I have reduced items in the kitchen and my butler’s pantry/coffee room,
and will move on to more rooms.
As I stated previously, it is never difficult for me to stage another person’s home,
but a bit hard to do that task for me. However, it is getting easier.
I wish you all a most beautiful day
and I hope and pray for those in the path of Tropical Storm Cindy to be safe!
