Back to my "post Christmas" clean up. I cleared everything out and just moved stuff around. I de-cluttered, moved topiaries, candles, hanging decor, faux flowers, furniture swaps, ceramic garden stools and so much more! After the holidays, that last thing we want to do is spend more $ so shopping around your own home is fiscally responsible. :)
You can see tons of home pictures here on Around My House. It's impossible for me to keep this updated because I change things around weekly. Not kidding. My Instagram feed is to the right-----> which usually has weekly changes.
Three of my favorite "post Christmas" changes were in the formal living room, the comfy family room and the bedroom. I took a garden stool from the staircase landing and moved it next to a side table in the living room.
|I REALLY wanted a glass console table for in front of the window but the space isn't big enough. I have had that little table for years- it was $12 on clearance at TJMaxx and it doesn't owe me a thing! That ceramic garden stool has been ALL over the house but for now, it lives in the living room. I really love it here! I also flip flopped the chaise lounge and chair and added a faux sheep skin rug to the chair for texture. I was inspired by Crazy Chic Design to use these rugs on furniture. These rugs are EVERYWHERE lately. They are all Safavieh but I scoop them up at HomeGoods for $16.99. Now I have 5 and I can't stop! Good thing they aren't breaking the bank! |
There was a lot going on with my night stand. A tray, a little silver owl, greenery, candles, books, silver sphere, and lamp. I cleared it all and went for a "less is more" approach. Moved the flowers from my dresser to the night table, added this adorable Kate Spade candle my hubby got me for Christmas, kept the lamp and stacked some of my night time reads. DONE. Very happy with outcome.
I encourage everyone to clear out and shop around their own home! The best strategy is to clear the space you want to spruce up and just keep placing until you are happy. Sometimes I move things around for an hour before I am truly happy. Remember that if you are placing things in a cluster, it should be odd numbers... 3 is the most common.
Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by!
