I admit it. I have been TERRIBLE about sharing what’s been happening at our new house, but I keep getting requests for updates, so I’m going to try to do better!
I’m using much of what we already owned in our new-to-us house – cause that’s what I’m all about! But – I banished the dated looking green, gold and red late 90’s decor from my old house and am determined to give my style a new lease on life.
I’ll start off with the console table that was a late addition to our former house. I bought this table a few months before we knew that we were going to sell and move. I had already started on my plan to de-goldify, de-greenify and de-redify our house. Don’t get me wrong – I adore those colors. I had just used them for so long that I was uber tired of them.
In the new house, the console table sits against a wall next to the opening between the kitchen and family room and is perpendicular to the end of our couch. It’s impossible to get a full shot from the front without capturing one end of it and the coffee table.
To start with, I had the table styled with the same things that I had used in the old house. But I knew that I wanted to change things up a bit. A Restoration Hardware look lamp from HomeGoods aimed me in the direction that I wanted to go.
Before, I had the bottom shelf completely filled with stuff. Now there’s just a dough bowl (from a local place called Golden Oldies) filled to overflowing with natural and boxwood orbs. Altogether the table is looking much more open and airy – just like I want it for the warmer months of the year.
Everything else on the table came from my stash. Right now it’s decked out with a look that will carry me through the spring and summer. I’m sure that I’ll change it up some for fall and Christmas.
Here’s a before shot of what the console table looked like our old home. Not bad – in fact I loved the look of it. It was sooo much better that the table that used to be on that wall. Click HERE to see what I’m talking about.
