Living Room Vignettes



Hi, everyone!

I've been showing you the changes and tweaks that I've made to our living room.

I showed you the newly painted armoire here...




...then the drawer unit beside my couch here...





And today I'm showing you a couple more areas in this room!

I got this coffee table awhile ago for a steal at an antique mall.

I created a new vignette on it, starting with a HUGE wicker tray that I got from Homegoods (with a Christmas gift card from my mom.)




I filled it with a large nest and eggs on an architectural base, a skinny topiary, and a metal lantern.




One of the first changes I made to this room (and showed you awhile ago) was placing this table in the corner of the room and leaning the tobacco drying basket on it.  I also hung the chippy old door, and added the huge cherub lamp to the top and postal bin to the bottom shelf.




I recently swapped in the hydrangea plant and some tall, distressed candlesticks (my mom surprised me with the tallest when I arrived in Tucson for vacation-love it!)




Between the couch and the table I stacked an old box and a crate, and topped them with an architectural base, candles and a glass cloche.




I also still have the old army trunk under the coffee table.




And beside the loveseat I placed a small bench holding a wire basket filled with a dried lavender bouquet.




I'm really happy with how this room has come together!

 I think I've achieved the lighter, brighter, French farmhouse look that I've been craving.




I'm almost finished showing you this room...I have just a couple more areas to reveal, next time. :)




I hope that you enjoyed.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

  5. Hi Susan,
    You did it again! I am in awe of your room and vignettes. Great tray and refreshing to see White eggs, so JDL. I never knew about tobacco drying baskets! It certainly adds gorgeous texture and interest. I am so wanting a postal bin and an army trunk!
    Wishing you and Keith and family a Happy Easter.

  26. I love your room and you have certainly achieved your goal of the French Farmhouse look...beautiful Susan...love all of the pretty Spring vignettes too. I love vignettes in a basket...been doing that lately as it is so easy to pick up and move!....

  27. The white wicker tray with the nest is simply perfect. I adore nests. And I love the room -- very restful and filled with cool, bright light.

    But I have to ask -- doesn't anyone come in and put books or coffee cups or the stuff of life on your beautiful table? Do you have to tidy up to share this loveliness with us? Because boy -- I'm beginning to have a serious inferiority complex! I don't think we can keep a surface here free of life for an hour! I'm a tad envious!

  28. It's all beautiful, Susan. I'm still so impressed by your cute painting hubby! I tried to shame mine into doing some work for me...I failed miserably. Oh, well...he makes excellent ice cream cones for me at bedtime. ;)

    I noticed you don't have anything hanging on your walls, is this by choice for the "look" you are wanting?
