Ironstone and Wicker {last new paint color reveal}

9.09.2013

I have shown y'all the new look of the great room, foyer, and stair landing since painting the walls the new color. There was one last change.

After painting I wasn't going to put anything under this plate rack since I moved the chest to the great room, but then a light went on in my head and I grabbed the large vintage basket on the bottom from the guest room and the smaller one from the master.

I love these old baskets stacked.

Before with chest and old paint color. This is the chest I moved to the great room.

I switched up a few pieces of the ironstone borrowing some from the china cabinet in the dining room.



The large basket on the bottom was found in a shop in Amelia Island, Florida many years ago. The owner said it was a vintage hamper from Provence.  You can see how it is made with sticks and wire.



I must have been into patina years ago without even thinking about it. I purchased this before I even knew to love French country style.





I think this is still my favorite ironstone piece with all the crazing and a chip here and there.

The smaller basket was bought at Scott Antique Market in Atlanta  last year. The strap is broken, but that is fine with me. The price was good.



Somehow ironstone and wicker just go together and it all looks better with the new wall color.

I took this picture of miss Bailey while I was shooting the other pics. She loves laying in the morning sun on the back of the sofa in the sitting room.

Have a super week!

  3. Yes... they do go together nicely!
    Having a wee attack of basket envy though. They are perfect stacked and under the ironstone.
    Happy new week.

  7. I love it Kim! The baskets have texture and warmth and look so pretty underneath the plate rack. The dresser 'before' was too... expected? The dog pic in the end makes me want to curl up on the couch :-)

  9. That looks great, love it! I also love the pictures of Bailey on the back of the sofa. Our cats do the same thing to our family room sofa, I don't think they ever let the dogs up there though.

  17. Kim the baskets look great! You know the smaller one is a fishing kreel...you would line the inside with moss and put your fish in through the square hole at the top.

    Have a great day!

  35. Miss Bailey sure is cute! My pups (seniors) like basking in the sun on the back of the sofa too. Love the new wall color and I really love the color of your shelf. It looks great with the ironstone. My mom had a few of those baskets and I should have taken them when she passed away but I was too grief stricken to think about it. I love how your baskets look under the shelf. It's nice to shop the house and change things up a bit.

  43. When I was a young woman I was partial to the look of pine or baskets like that against a light colored or white wall. I still love that look.

  46. Love the new wall paint. It makes for a great backdrop for your beautiful vignettes.

  47. You show how easy it can be to create a new vignette by shopping the house and rearranging. And, a fresh coast of paint is a great way to redecorate.

  52. You shouldn't have put that picture of Bailey at the end! She's so cute I forgot all I wanted to say about how lovely the ironstone looks against the soft colour of the shelves!
