I was so inspired by a blue and white arrangement that I found in one of the photos that I decided to give my living room a little makeover...starting with a coffee table revamp! I just used three big statement pieces…simple. I have to control myself because I like “little” and tend to use a lot of small things. I am trying to make myself use fewer and bigger pieces.
Our co-host Baby Kitty seems unconcerned since he knows I am using Charles Faudree as my example and I don’t need a lot of help from him today.
Here it is! I think I like the uncluttered look! I am really liking those green pears!
Here’s where they were before…and I liked them there, too. I may have to be on the hunt for more green! And…what do you think of my new lamp? I got it from my favorite flea/antique market with every intention of painting it a creamy white and then distressing it. I just plopped it down on the table and then realized that I love it green! Doesn’t it have a fabulous and unusual shape? I have a little "paint it white or leave it green" poll going on my Facebook page here if you'd like to voice your opinion. So far it looks like green is winning!
And on the mantel…more blue and white with pops of green! It’s an arrangement I have used before, but with a painting behind it. I think I like it better with the mirror. You can get a peek at more blue and white on my hutch in the reflection.
And at the center of it all…my favorite sheep! I walked past him and wanted him for two years before I finally gave in and bought him. Thank goodness he waited for me!
And there you have it…my Faudree inspired living room! Once again, my main man Charles Faudree has validated my idea of all that is Country French! And…I am happy because I shopped the house so my makeover was virtually free! And best of all...I have a whole new go-to book when I need some decorating ideas! Yaaay!
