Yesterday, I babysat for my favorite "clients!"
While my granddaughters napped, I took the opportunity to do some more staging and a follow-up photo shoot in their new Cost Plus living room.
Remember, it all started with these darling blue damask chairs.
Since then, I've added the bookshelf which is seen in the corner. Perfect for all their children's books!
A lamp that didn't quite go in my house, found a new home between the new chairs.
It was one of those impulse purchases from OKL. So glad it works here!
The end table was yet another Cost Plus purchase. The lamp and tray are from my collection.
Not bad hand-me-downs--right?
I also bought as many kubu wicker baskets as I could find. Cost Plus is phasing these out, so I was lucky to find this one which tucks neatly under the table.
The mantel is simply styled with mercury glass and silver candle holders.
I added a little fall foliage to warm things up.
Opposite the fireplace, I added another etagere, which was needed to complete the media wall, and also provides a lot more storage opportunities.
More kubu wicker baskets and lined chicken wire baskets are ready to hold CDs, books, magazines, etc.
I found this wine box in my garage and thought it would fit perfectly on the bottom shelf, elevating the components to basket height. I love how it adds that unexpected touch.
The blue houndstooth pillows that I ordered from The Foundary were delivered today, just in time for the photo shoot!
Although a little big, they add a punch of color and weight to this side of the room.
In the perfect world, this is how the living room would look!
But we all know that isn't realistic.
This family now has a fresh, new look with lots of storage for the toys and books that belong to these two darling little girls who, as you can see, just woke up from their naps!
