Good morning! I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! With all the Christmas decor down the house always looks a little barren at first. For the most part, I really love how clean and uncluttered it looks but some spots can look a little bare and boring after all the warmth the Christmas decorations add. In our rental, as soon as the tree came down the wall with the windows on it in our living room looked like it really needed something. When we first moved in I had put the clock there but I wanted something with a little more substance and then saw this console and loved how it went with the rest of the items in the room so decided to give it a try.
You can see from this angle that it’s narrow so it doesn’t bump too far out into the room and works well in here, but it’s not so narrow that you can’t display things on it.
Ruby is pouting because she was wet from being outside and I wouldn’t let her on the couch (it’s normally one of her favorite spots). She’s awfully spoiled so it always hits my funny bone a bit when I tell her no and she sulks just like a child.
Above the console we added this round mirror (which is a GREAT price!!!!) and then a lamp with clean lines and some accessories we had around the house. It’s always fun to mix things up a little bit this time of year! I accidentally hung the mirror a few inches lower than I meant to. If we weren’t renting I would have immediately rehung it, but because we are I’m still debating whether or not to leave it be or not…haha! In real life it doesn’t bother me but in photos it’s driving me a little crazy.
I still haven’t hung anything over on this wall above the chairs.
Well, that’s it for today! I hope you all have a great week!
