I have been eliminating some small pieces of furniture in each room of the house
to gain a less cluttered, cleaner look, staging the house to place it on the market.
Some pieces of furniture were sent to storage and some danced to the Furniture Shuffle.
A furniture shuffle for staging and simple fall touches occurred in the Media Room.
While I am still tweaking this room, I thought I would show you
one side of the room today.
I must be cautious with my seasonal decor these days,
so adding simple Fall touches using color and minimal accessories
is the appropriate thing to do.
Flowers in Fall colors will be added later.
In the meantime, stalks of wheat fit the bill.
An olive bucket of cotton stems reminds me of Fall in the South.
How about adding a few pheasant feathers to an arrangement of greenery
in a mint julep cup.
Now let’s talk about the furniture shuffle.
Previously there was a winged back recliner and a bergere chair in the room.
Those pieces were relocated and the chairs from the dining room were placed in the room.
These Ethan Allen Martha Washington chairs that I found at an estate sale a few years ago,
were recovered and placed in the bay window area of the dining room.
Later they were placed at each end of the dining room table.
Now they are here in the Media Room.
Normally, I would not have placed these chairs in this room,
as it functions as a room for TV viewing and casual activities.
However, to accomplish a cleaner, lighter look for staging purposes, it works.
As I have stated previously, I am still tweaking the bookcases
on each side of the fireplace on the other side of the room.
I thought I had it pretty much done, but when I stepped back
and squinted my eyes (a trick that I use), the bookcases still needed “thinning”
I have decided that I shall keep my antique pie safe
and either sell or consign the 50’s reproduction diner pub table and chairs.
I will have a full Fall Home Tour soon . . . when I join the some lovely ladies of
bHome for a bhome Fall Tour. I can guarantee you will get lots of wonderful
inspiration for all things Fall decor.
Have a great weekend! My thoughts and prayers are with the ones who are in the path
of Hurricane Harvey. I was a Florida girl most of my life and know how devastating
these storms can be. My friend Martha who recently moved to a town
a little north of Houston says they will be hunkered down and are prepared.
Her Meteorologist son keeps her very well informed.
Stay safe friends!
