Hope you took full advantage of the long weekend, we found time to hang out with
friends and family, take in some 4th of July festivities and almost finish our black deck!
A couple weeks ago I popped in Goodwill and came home home with two items
that inspired a quick spiff up of my family room. I didn't have a plan, but it ended up
being a lively burst of color that feels fresh and fun for summer.
I nabbed this fretwork lamp so darn quick, and then noticed the insane $7 price tag! :)
It has a raised branch and blossom, and Greek key detail at the top and bottom, I'm smitten.
Then I spied the coral, chevron ikat pillow with embroidery detail for $6. It's
available on Target's website for $25. Can you believe this is my first ever chevron
purchase? That fun tropical lumbar is from this etsy shop that I love for unique
pillows, her custom details and workmanship are top notch, check out the velvet with
exposed brass zipper...perfection!
I moved our black lacquer table (a DIY from two years ago that I still love) for some
contrast with all the white and styled my new Craigslist coffee table with a few books,
white accessories and hosta leaves from our yard in a square vase. If you missed my post
'simple summer styling' I shared some ideas for using foliage.
If someone asked me to style a coffee table without books, a tray, and greenery or
blossoms from our yard I'd be in a pickle. They're always my favorite go-to items.
$13 well spent - this little update will make me happy all summer!
What favorite item have you added to your decor for summer?
