Its Not Naked Anymore and a Peek

3.07.2016

I shared my new coffee table last week in it's naked state and finally got around to styling it by just adding a few simple things.

I had to hunt down this basket, that I knew I had somewhere, and found it stored in a cabinet in the garage. This makes the perfect base for my vignette.

I filled the basket with a pretty glass hurricane, potted plant, a stack of books and some chunky wooden beads.

I have had this hurricane for years. I love the pretty etched flower design.

I love the patina and gray color of this terracotta pot and plants thrive in this light. 

I found these wooden beads at the Pottery Barn outlet for just $7. I love them draped over books.



So Henry the table is not naked anymore.

I guess you noticed the new sofa in the photos? I am so in love even though the process was long and irritating. Here is a close up of the fabric.

I can't share a whole room reveal quite yet. I am waiting on a chair to arrive by the eighteenth or sooner and a lighter rug should come this week.

 I'm having so much fun trying out different pillows. With the red gone the possibilities are endless. I have shared two looks on instagram.

BTW, I sold the sofa yesterday to the friend of a woman who follows me on instagram!

Have a fabulous week!

  3. The word "vignette" always cracks me up. Glad you are enjoying the new sofa. Love my neutrals. I have 3 or 4 different pillow combos and fabric samples (for more pillows LOL) laid out on my sofa right now, trying to decide on what to change to. The bosporus (sp?) pillow is one of them!

  4. Though I would miss the red because it is my favorite color. However, I don't. Where did you find that nice basket?

  5. Looks great Kim and yippee for selling the old sofa. It's nice when that happens and you can get it out of your space. I'm loving my neutral tones too....over the red for a while.

  15. Pretty fabric on couch! How do you determine a price when you sell a piece of furniture? I have a 35 years old Century armoire, triple dresser/mirror and 2 night stands - I have no idea what to ask. Thanks!

    1. Patti, I have no idea. I have never sold a piece before. I just knew this sofa was extremely expensive when we purchased it and was in mint condition since we really didn't use it except when guests were here. I just came up with a price that I thought was reasonable.

  19. Oh I do like that flat handled basket and it is perfect on the new table! I like the neutral colored fabric you chose for the sofa. Can't wait to see it in its entirety. I remember when I got a whole new room of furniture and everything came in nicely except for the coffee and end tables. I didn't think they'd ever come and I couldn't enjoy the room until they did. I hadn't thought about it until you mentioned the chair you're waiting for. It'll be worth the wait I'm sure!
