One Thing Leads to Another

6.16.2010

When I changed the bedding and accessories in the guest room then of course that meant that the domino effect took place, too. You know what I am talking about don't pretend you don't. When you change one room or buy something new then something else gets replaced and moved. Same way with rooms when you start changing them. Well that happens here anyway.

When I moved the bird bedding from the master bedroom to the guest bedroom I also had to change out the accessories. The two bird prints that were in my powder room moved to the guest room. So I moved a coastal print to the powder room and then changed out the accessories to match. Did you keep up with that?



So when these bird prints went to the guest room 


here


this coastal print moved here. This print was in the bathroom of the guest room.
I bought this at Home Goods on clearance for ten dollars.


The first thing that drew me to it was the big chunky frame.


I just love this picture of a little girl holding her dress up so it doesn't get wet.


This is the tray that was in my master bath and was replaced with the silver one. Now it holds found 
shells in here.


I have had most of these shells since I was in my twenties. They are old. The starfish are new.


When I got the new green glass lamp with the number 5 on it from Target and put it in
the guest room this bamboo lamp from there moved here.


Added this wicker candle holder to add another coastal touch.


And I brought this sea bird from the guest room to replace the tulips that were in the sconce.
See one thing leads to another.

Linking to the following:
 Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage 
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch
Under the Table and Dreaming for Showcase Sunday

Several asked what my master bedroom looks like now since I put the bird bedding in
the guest room. I was going to share that, but I am working on a couple of things that aren't ready. Also still 
finishing up some painting in the sitting room. The doors were not fun to paint again.
All the changes will be shown soon. No big changes anyway. Just some stuff that moved around from here to there.

I truly do appreciate all your comments more than you know.

Y'all come back now,

KIM

  3. Oh we know what you mean about one thing leading to another.

    I really like how you use that great, big frame. I have one that looks just like it & it's hidden away . . . now I know what to do - use it to contain a different framed print. Ingenious!

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Kim, your home always looks great! It doesn't matter what room you but your accessories because they all go so beautifully together!

  8. Looks great and a nice change of pace. I hope to someday get to that point that things can be moved around. I have been redecorating using colors that coordinate. However, I do find that once I get it the way I like it, I just enjoy it and leave it as it is. However, now that I am blogging, things seem to change daily so we'll see!!

  10. I know what you mean about one thing leading to another, I get bored very quickly with my rooms and start moving things, then sometimes I decide they looked better before and can't always remember how I had everything!I love the color in your master bath, can you tell me what it is. thanks

  16. yes... I am very familar with the domino effect. You do have a knack for mixing and moving things around... could you do it everyday and take pictures??? ;)It inspires me to mix it up!! P.S. love the bamboo lamp now in the bathroom!!

  17. Kim, I love all the changes you've been making. I especially love that you are just moving things from one room to another instead of starting totally from scratch. I think that takes so much more creativity. Your guest room and bath look fabulous with all the coastal accessories. Hugs, Marty

  18. I sure do know what you mean, Kim! Your wall paint colors look a lot like ours here. Don't you love that green Target lamp? I so enjoy the one I purchased for the dining room. Since the room is so small, it needed something you could see through and also not impede looking out the French doors. Your house always looks fantastic!

  26. Wonderful photography. Your colors of your room are great. Were these daytime pics and what kind of camera do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, these shots were today and I use a Canon PowerShot SX120 and I had it set on automatic and some of the shots were on P and set on macro.

  28. I need to sit down for a moment after all that running back and forth - but what pretty changes you made with all those switches!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am so with you on this one! I spent three days cleaning house, rearranging things, and when one thing moves, everything moves. Love the coastal look!!

  30. You are inspiring me with these changes Kim! I might have to start moving things around here. Your home is lovely.

  31. That is so true that one thing leads to another! Love your changes, especially the new print of the girl on the beach.

  32. I just love when you put a frame inside a larger ornate frame!!! I did that in my daughters room and LOVE IT! I love all your changes and always enjoy seeing your beautiful home :)

  35. Love your new profile picture! You are just beautiful... inside and out!

  36. Kim, I love the coastal print (the chunky frame is really nice.) Placing it within the other larger frame in the powder room was genious... makes it very substantial. Nice!

  37. Isn't that domino eggect so true in decorating, Kim? Sorry I haven't been visiting much. And I thought I was busy the last 2 weeks, lol! This week, I have my stepdaughter with her 3 toddlers visiting from Florida. OMG! Talk about busy. The little one who just started walking is opening all the cabinets and pulling out everything in it. He picks up anything he sees on tabletops too so I had to move everything higher. You know my house is not child proof. We had to block off the living and dining room, lol. Also today my 11 yr. old granddaughter flew by herself for the first timefrom FL so we went to New Orleans to pick her since it's the only airport with a direct flight. We're having a pool party on Sat so I have to start really cleaning up and preparing food tomorrow and I just do not know how I can keep it clean with all the kids around. Then IO am going on a trip on Monday so will have to take a week's bloggy break unless I could find time to post in advance which I doubt. I hope to visit more after I get back. I love all your changes but then I love your home before the changes too...Christine

  38. I love all of the changes you have made. I cannot wait to see your bedroom. You are so good at rearranging. I have so many prints from my other home in NC that are just stuck in a closet because I do not know where to put them in my MD home. I am having a crisis in my master bedroom sitting room area, I am not sure what to do with it. I would love to have your advice. If I sent you a picture could you help. You have inspired me to find something to do with all of my pictures in the closet. Have a great Thursday!

  39. Completely agree-- domino affect.

  42. Kim, it's such fun to see your creative energy at work. I think you are one talented lady! Your home reflects both your talent and your love of nesting. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas. ~ Sarah

  43. One thing does lead to another doesn't it? It always happens that way.

    I was going to put some frames on the wall in my guest room and I was going to put a picture inside one of the frames just like you did. I like that you did that.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks Kim for the reply, I love all the things you have done in your home, the bird pic that started all the "changes" I think is an old home interiors print-that really shows my age! I think my mom had one at some point in time. I am trying to repaint most of my house and you know how hard it is to find colors that will endure--especially for someone who becomes bored so easily, can you tell me the color in the guest bath the ?gold-yellow color. Thanks again

  45. Sheila, the powder room color is Richmond Gold by Benjamin Moore. It is one of their historic colors.

  52. Hey Kim! This is my first comment although I have been reading your blog since the beginning. I am not a blogger, yet, and am new to commenting, but I felt compelled to tell you your bathroom is lovely. Your whole house is actually. I am a Georgian as well and we have similar taste in decorating. I shop at the same stores you do, but as I live on the South side (Newnan), I don't get to Pottery Barn often. I should go! Take care and keep inspiring!

  53. Thank you Carolyn. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. I hope you will again. We have family in Newnan.

  58. Kim,

    This is so pretty! My good friend taught me to 'move things around.' She said it always makes you feel like you have new stuff! Thanks for the great ideas! Christie

  59. LOVE all the shells and that bamboo lamp is so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi, Kim! Regarding one thing leading to another, my dear sis-in-law and I, who do a lot of painting and decorating together, have an "earthier" way of putting it -- "opening a can of worms." When we make a decision and then realize all the ramifications, we find ourselves looking at each other 'til one of us admits, "Can o' worms!" Great fun, though! Love your blog!

    I LOVE the picture of the little girl; LOVE the tray of shells!!; and I especially love the little table with the lamp on it. I'm studying my bathroom as we speak to see if I can't fit a little table in there!!
