Entryway Restyle

I’m at it again…moving things around here and there. I don’t think I ever go more than a few days before moving at least one thing in my house to a new spot. I’ve restyled my entryway console table and I wanted to share it with you. Let me know what you think because I know sometimes it needs a few pairs of eyes and some good suggestions to get a great final product. Thanks, darlings! xoxo

 I added those key hooks because I am notorious for forgetting where I last set my keys. I needed somewhere right in the entry that I could hang them. This was at Kohl’s on sale for $8.99.

Those coral geometric frames were a great find last year at Walmart – $4.98 each! They hold pictures of me with both my boys at similar ages, in the pool, wearing the same hat. The one to the right was Tanner in 2006 and the other is Breckin in 2011.

Speaking of coral, that white beauty you see there was one I ordered from Z Gallerie a few months ago. It was $24.99. The magazine and book stacks  contain all of my favorite home magazines {HGTV, Better Homes & Gardens, Charleston Home + Design, etc.} and a few of my favorite home decorating books.

The abstract art is the work of my first grader, Tanner – done when he was age six last summer. The pallet art is mine…hubby and I have talked about working together to make and sell these eventually.

And of course, my favorite Craigslist find to date is still that yellow Crate & Barrel console table…it was love at first sight.

Hope you enjoy my latest restyle {I can guarantee there will be more to come!}

Shelf Styling

I’ve got lots of little shelves and surfaces around my house with arrangements of art, photos, books and random decor that I tend to change around often.

I have a few personal tips when it comes to styling a shelf…

1. Use uneven items to create visual interest. I generally like to pull in a stack of books, a piece of art or some picture frames and some sort of statement piece to tie it all in together.

2. Create a seemingly “accidental balance” by not having one side look “heavier” or “bulkier” than the other…it doesn’t have to be the same exact heights or amount of items, but the placement of the items should keep in mind the visual balance of the shelf as a whole.

3. When filling a shelf with like items, try to find a few “unlike” pieces to add to the mix that don’t steal the show, but add visual interest.

4. Just have fun with it! Use items unique to you that say something about your personality and interests. Your shelves should be a showoff display. Play with different arrangements from time to time and the perfect “style” will come.
