Hi everyone! I wanted to share a little corner of our living room with you all today. We haven't traveled into this room on my blog much lately, so a post like this is long overdue!
I picked up the cutest, squishy burlap basket at Home Goods the other day - $4.99! Woo hoo! They had a size smaller, and two or three sizes bigger, all stenciled with a different amount of pounds. The five pounder was just right for me, so in the cart it went!
For now, I just placed a houseplant in it, and set it on my harp-based end table. It adds a nice contrast to the shiny lamp (an old Home Goods purchase) and although it looks a bit shiny in the pic, it is truly coarse, nubby, beautiful burlap. It also goes well with the burlap shade on the lamp.
This area is pretty representative of the type of colors I am drawn to - golds, burgandys, greens. The picture on the left is a handpainted oil that I picked up several years ago at Goodwill for super cheap - like $2.00 cheap. It's kind of crinkly and worn - I love it! The other two pictures are so pretty, but are Kirkland cheapies. Still, they work well here.
The yellow checked ottoman is a Target find, back when they first introduced their Threshold line. It has storage and is great for extra seating, propping up your feet, or simply adding a pop of color and pattern, as it does here. I painted and stained the old harp based table several years go, picked it up at a thrift store for - again - cheap!
The little collie on the old book is a favorite. Just a sweet faced, little guy that adds some charm to the setting.
All these flower pictures and green plants have me longing for spring! We are having an ice, snow, rain, and thunderstorm event today - yes, that is our actual forecast! That's Wisconsin weather for ya - all the seasons wrapped up in one day! But sooner or later, I will be admiring the outside flowers and greenery! (I hope so anyway!)
Have a great weekend!
