Everyday I sit across from our coffee table at some point during the day or the evening. It didn’t occur to me until yesterday that the decor was still full-blown Spring and it is already mid-Summer. Do you ever do that? Become immune to your own home decor?
I’ve been so focused on other rooms in the house that I completely missed changing out the coffee table decor. It’s not really a big deal, except for the fact that the Spring table had a nest and some bare branches and looked like this:
I purchased a new sisal rug for the family room so I decided to keep the coastal vibe going in the house. I gathered up coastal items from the house and got to work.
I really love this wood tray that I have used in many rooms of the house. It’s an antique cutlery tray that I purchased many years ago for $5.00! It is perfectly aged and looks great on top of the chest that we use as our coffee table.
I displayed more of my beach glass collection with a starfish from our vacation in this cloche. The bottle is a find that was buried in my grandparents backyard.
The pillow fabric is actually from curtains that I had made for Jennifer in her old house. When she moved I reclaimed the curtains 🙂
The wooden tray is a little beat-up which makes me like it more.
The indigo blue pottery was a clearance find at the garden center. I don’t mind the chipped edges – it adds instant character.
I couldn’t forget about updating the space for our Perfect Boy, Starbuck. There was plenty of fabric to freshen up his space too. Yes, he does get to sleep like a King in his wrought iron bed. After all, he does live with me – Queen Bee 🙂
I’m so happy that I finally noticed that I needed a decor refresh. It makes such a difference to move a few items around and adds new energy to the family room. Are you changing up your spaces?
