A Closer Look

1.17.2012

Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments regarding my new sun room. I am really enjoying the lighter feel in it. This is where I spend most of my time when I am sitting, which hasn't been much lately.

I just wanted to share a few closer shots of the vignettes on the tables in the sun room. I didn't even realize that I have texture in each vignette. None of these vignettes were planned. I just threw them together with a tweak here and a tweak there.

I decided to bring this vintage tole lamp in here from the foyer. Since I placed the round table between the two chairs I wanted to use this lamp since it has a light bulb on each side with a separate chain for each.  If someone wants to sit and look at a magazine or book they will have plenty of reading light.

I found this lamp at an antique mall and loved it as soon as I saw it. Did I need another lamp? Probably not. It isn't in perfect condition, but that is fine with me.

Added my found bird nest in the top of this pot and placed it on a plate and added the cloche.
The nest is textural.

I love the piece of dental floss that the bird found and used and then again I think ewwwwww. Was it used??

The large rustic bird house moved from atop the t.v. chest  to this table. I promise you I am not trying to do a bird theme in here. Just using what I had.

This old barn wood bird house is textural, too. The roof is made from old tin tiles.

Decided not to hang these crates back on the wall so I just placed one here and filled it with greenery.

Switched out the lampshade to this burlap one. Loving the texture of the burlap.



My vintage wicker tray adds more texture.

So glad I found a spot to add these old bottles that Mr. Savvy found at the antique mall.

The cork in top of the blue green bottle is the champagne cork from New Year's. It just happens to fit perfectly. The blue green bottle is one that did have the wicker on it, but it was so rotten that I just cut it off and found the pretty bottle under it.

This vintage demijohn adds more texture to this vignette.



Powder room is almost finished and I LOVE it!

Today I have been dusting, vacuuming and mopping. Oh, how I love a clean house.
It has to be clean before Leila comes on Wednesday.
I haven't kept her in a while.

See you tonight for Wow!

  10. My husband and I simply loved the pictures on your previous post. I love all the textures you've posted on this post. I have a sun room that I don't know what to do with. It's odd shaped. I have a wicker set in it now but would love to make it more inviting to guests. You've given me some great ideas.

  12. Kim, I just had to show Joe your vintage bottle collection so he can help me look for similar ones. The sun room is beautiful and all that work paid off for you two. The bird motif works and I love me some birds as you know. hugs, olive

  21. Looking good!!! I don't think you ever need to 'think' about it, Kim; it is just a part of you to come up with beautiful decor.

    A clean house is always wonderful, but especially in anticipation of Miss Leila! blessings ~ Tanna

  26. It looks great, Kim. However, gotta tell you - I DO think you have a bird theme going on there-even if it is by accident! That would be a happy accident cuz it looks beautiful. Have fun cleaning and scrubbing and preparing for Leila! xo Diana

  31. I love the tray that you have with the bottles on, I'm looking for one to put my old bottles on. Right now I'm using a wooden
    one but wanted to bring in some texture and yours looks like it came from Pottery Barn. Saw one in PB last Tuesday but was 39.00! Ouch

  37. I love your new look in the sunroom. It is indeed so light and airy.....
    It always feels so good when things are a little different and all nice and clean.
    You have done a fabulous job.

  38. I never realized that you do have a bird theme going on in there. Maybe it's your subconscious making you decorate with them because you love them so much. Also, your sunroom is the perfect bird watching room in your house!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It all looks beautiful, and so inviting! Loving the texture in your vignettes! I could curl up with a magazine or a book anywhere in that room. All of your hard work really paid off!
    Enjoy your newly cleaned house! I am off to finish organizing my pantry. *Sigh*.

  43. I have found so many weird things in my bird nest collection--- real human hair (gobs of it, like from a barber), green plastic Easter baskets, etc. Thanks for hosting! andrea@townandprairie

  52. I love it all. I went back to read the sunroom post. I'll admit that when I saw you were painting it again...I really thought it was pretty as it was. However, as much as I liked the before...I love the after! It seems so much brighter and more soothing. It is just beautiful.
