Hi, everyone! In my last post (here) I showed you how my decor is going lighter and brighter.
I gave you this sneak peak of an area that I've changed in the hallway...
...and now I'm going to give you a better look!
This is what the hallway looked like before...
I had my stack of suitcases here for many years! That has to be a record for something staying in one place!
As much as I love those suitcases, I was craving a change, so I replaced them with a stack of wicker 'trunks'.
I'm really loving wicker right now and used it a lot in this space. I feel that it gives a lighter vibe and plays nicely with my whites.
I topped the trunks with a small pile of vintage linens. The monogrammed one on top is a recent purchase.
I've had this barn wood chalkboard in storage for awhile and decided to hang it behind the wicker stack (with one of my favorite sayings added!)
On the adjacent wall I hung a wicker basket that I recently got, and filled it with a couple of gorgeous dried hydrangeas that my friend Suzanne gave me from her garden. Look at those beautiful colors!
Next to the wicker trunks is the huge statement piece (coat rack) that my mom got us.
From one of the many hooks I hung a wire birdcage (a Christmas gift) with a candle.
Then I totally changed out the top shelf of the rack.
I gathered a collection of wicker bottles...
...and added my old apple picking basket filled with more dried hydrangeas.
...then I topped it with a shallow dough bowl.
It holds the mail and random magazines.
So, what do you think?
Are you wacky for wicker, too?
Have a wonderful day! And stay tuned for a fun giveaway that I have coming up! :)
