Ever since we installed our pool last year I have added a little coastal decor to our traditional home in the summer months. I know, I know, it's still officially Spring. However, I call it Summer when we stay in the 90's! I found this beautiful painting at an auction this weekend. The colors are so pretty, not too bright, but enough to brighten my living room.
I used my two vases that I recently found at the local thrift store and used some tropical foliage from Hobby Lobby. It is a little bare to me but I'm also used to filling the mantel up!! I'm restraining myself from adding more.
Remember the cream lamp base I bought at the Trash to Treasure sale? I bought it for $4 and this is what I had in store for it. Hunter primed and painted it this pretty blue. I purchased the lamp shade from Lowe's. I thought about trimming the shade in some way but I decided to leave it plain. I felt that a colored band would look a little too modern, a shell band would be just too coastal, and a rope band, which was my favorite, still didn't seem to work in my room, so I left it.
It adds a nice little pop of color on this table.
Thanks for stopping by.
