After seeing her room empty, Andi realized that she doesn't have to display all of her things that "spark joy"at the same time. She emptied a few shelves in a closet in the back room to create a has a "decorating closet" . . . her pared down "stash" of seasonal accessories and collectibles that she can rotate through her home when she wants a change.
We were inspired by the large colored glass displays in the PB catalogue, especially this one in a window very similar to the one in Andi's living room.. On our "inspiration-gathering trip", Andi found a large "faux" fall branch on Clearance at PB for $8.99 . . .
And this large green glass bottle from Home Goods to duplicate the PB look in her own bay window. The Home Goods vase, hand made in Spain, gives Andi's window a focal point . . . for only $29.99.
A bird-lover, Andi also fell in love with this throw cushion on Sale at Pottery Barn. The colors were perfect for her room.
The candle and holder on the window sill are PB-inspired . . .
But ours are from Target.
The rusty chain was on Clearance at PB, marked down from $16.00 to at $3.99. It adds color, texture and a dash of the unexpected to Andi's room and we both just kind of liked it. Andi even bought a second chain for me. (Hey, If we change our minds about using these in our rooms, we can both be Grim Reapers for Halloween!)
So here's another look at what we did in one weekend:
