Switching Places

5.13.2014

I showed y'all the black French style bench that moved from the great room to the sun room, but didn't show you the bench in the great room that was in the sun room. Did you keep up with that? Here, let me show you.

This bench was in the great room, but is now in the sun room.

And this bench that was in the sun room moved here to where the black one was. You can even see the end of the black one in the sun room in this shot.

My favorite cow pillow graces this bench. In the article in the French Country Style magazine the writer said this pillow is a sentimental piece of mine. No, and I don't know where she got that from. It's just a favorite.

This is the largest demijohn I have. I bought it in Normandy last fall and I love the amber color.



The other day I decided to place this antique basket filled with vintage leather books under the bench.


So for now this bench resides here and the black one in the sun room.
Moving things around gives a fresh new look.

Have you tried switching things up?

Can't wait to see what you have switched up and reinvented this week at Wow!

See you tonight!

  1. I'm switching things up like a mad woman, trying to get the house in somewhat good shape to put on the market. Wish I had your energy, Kim. Anytime you'd like to do some switching up at my house.... :)

  3. I love changing things up. My husband would say waking up in the night going through the living room to get to the kitchen is dangerous... She may of flip the living room furniture around while you was sleeping. LOL Your change looks great...

  9. I luv it when you share your changes. It gives me company... my family is always grumbling about how things never stay the same. I don't do 'stale' . Keeping thins the same = stale. Changes = fresh and new!
    I knew a woman that lived in a home for 8 years... it stayed the very same for all that time. Seriously!! I would go nuts.
    Luv that you share your changes!
    Hugs, Gee

  10. I love how you have the ability to switch things out to get a whole new look! You have actually inspired me - when I look at something to purchase, I think about the different places that I can use it - not just in one space! It's a great cure for attention decorating disorder!

  17. I switch things up almost too often. I fuss and move and tweak every day I am home, lol. both those benches are wonderful pieces and look good in both spots.

    And be sure to answer Kathryn's inquiry above. : - )

  18. Kim, the pillow would be a favorite for me too. Love the soft colors and the cow. '-)
    I wish I had room for more benches. If we move, I'm going to make a space for at least one more bench. I love to use a bench for seasonal pillows and also for a catch all for things like Sadie's leash, a place to drop my handbag when I return home, etc. Thanks for the inspiration.

  24. I think the switch was a good one. I just LOVE that black bench...it would be perfect in my entrance hall, so now you've given me an idea of what to look for. Thanks! (or of course you could just switch it on up here -- I'll find something to trade, LOL!). I'm not very good at switching things up around here, but I'm getting better!

  25. I love the bench and all the accessories you used around... and under it! Lately I've tried switching every thing that was in the kitchen in different rooms of the cottage for the kitchen remodel.... Somehow it doesn't look as great as when You are switching things around ;)

  26. Kim, I love that black bench! I am always changing things around in my house... everyone is used to it now.

  27. I change things usually seasonally but some things just stay put cause there is no where else to put them:) I got my copy of THE MAGAZINE yesterday, FINALLY found it! The cashier said, "are you redecorating?" and I replied, "no, but I know the lady whose house this is!!!!" She was very happy, said she had never heard that! I love ALL the switches you do! That demijohn is gorgeous!!!

  30. You managed to track down such treasures on your trip to France, Kim, like the demijohns, and they look like they found the perfect home, all the way across the pond! Ils sont adorable!
