I have felt like a million bucks this week with everyone’s glowing compliments on my TV cabinet to console and my quatrefoil mirror.  Well I have set out on the mission to decorate the new console. 

I am not a knick nacky kind of girl so I really don’t have many flat spaces in my home to house vignettes.  I also don’t have a ton of stuff laying around to decorate.  So I decided to keep the space simple.  A couple of gorgeous lamps with simple shades and something seasonal that I can change out in the middle.

I started with a small sqaured bowl I found at Goodwill a while back.  I also grabbed my Dollar Tree pumpkins I purchased a couple of years ago. 

After a quick coat of black spray paint and some added moss I created a simple fall vignette.

I had purchased and returned some silver lamps some months ago when I was decorating that dreaded two tiered table (more on that this week).  They were not tall and wide enough for the two-tiered table but I thought they would be perfect for my new console table.  They were $14 and then I found some shades on clearance for $4.  Not the cheapest option available but for $36 I didn’t think it was too terribly awful, especially when I put them in place.
I love the shape and the bright silvered mirror finish.  It kind of plays off the mirror and they are tall enough but not overwhelming where I would not be able to draw attention to the middle vignette I have created.  I like the simple shades but I am not sure I am in love with the white shade.  I am thinking something with some texture might be better suited.  I have to live with it for a week or so before I form my opinion.  That is how I roll.
I wanted to add a punch of color.  So I hung a red wreath I created for Valentine’s Day on the quatrefoil mirror.
I thought maybe it would distract from the mirror but I think it compliments it quite well.  And I love, love, double love red, black and turquiose together.
Now I just have to work on the lower shelves.  But I like keeping the area simple and clean.  Let’s hope I can keep it uncluttered.  It would be a minor miracle people!

  1. I am a fellow not a knick knacker. They drive me crazy. Your space is coming together well. You're doing a great job!

  2. Ooo I love the pop of color with the red. In my house, the colors are all greens, blues, and browns, but I like to have a few cranberry pops of color here and there. Lovely space!

  3. I love this! I just found you from another blog, and I am discovering all these home blogs I never knew about 🙂 We are moving next month into a much bigger house and I just told my husband today, Yay I'll get to do lots of vignettes in the new house because we are going to have so many more spaces than we do now! Love these ideas, thanks!

  4. LOVE the lamps – the color and the shape. They are great! I like the simple look too – not too knick knacky.

  5. I love it Beckie! I think I forgot to comment on your quatrefoil mirror, but I love that as well. I have a big thing for that right now! And I LOVE red and turquoise together too! 🙂 Lovely!

  6. I giggled when I read your "red & turquoise". I'm redecorating my daughter's room in pink, red & turquoise. 🙂 Love what you've done! 🙂

  10. I love that you just added this whole new element to your home… do you have that excited happy feeling every time you walk by? It looks amazing!

  11. You always find the most unique things at Goodwill…. I LOVE that bowl/box, whatever you want to call it. Looks really nice so far!

  12. Very stunning wreath! I'm off to find your post about making it. I'm really hoping to make a few wreaths to change out for our front door, and I love the texture of yours!

  13. I love, love, love what you did with the tv console and mirror. Brilliant!! I also love black, turquoise, and red together. So pretty. I made a pirate blanket for my hubby with those colors. I just found your site a week ago and I have to say it is one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing your talents!

  14. wow, it's all come together so nice. I'm wondering what else you have going on in that little corner!
    I love the red!

  15. didn't think I could like it more, but dang it! I do! You have an excellent flair for decorating and color! Trying to picture the old TV in the new vignette! haha!

  16. It seems like every blog I visit they've featured you! Congrats! Well deserved, I might add.

    Since I just moved {gag} I'm on a mission to declutter my life. Yes, it should've been done before I moved but there was no time.

    Good news – it's made me reexamine feng shui, decluttering, chaos and how it all affects me. So all in all, it's been a good thing.

    Love the mirror & table. Love the turquoise. When I get back to painting, that's going to be my color way.

  20. That wreath is perfect over your mirror! It'll work for Christmas too… and Valentines….you'll be set for a long time.

  21. Super entirely impressed by the arrangements… and love the red + blue! So plush!!! Will be praying for your "declutterd" console!!

  22. Lovely space Рvery calming. Your transformation of the TV cabinet was really cool. As regards the two lamps: I agree the two white shades may be a bit too stark. But before you go and replace them, why don't you just redecorate the shades themselves? They could be appliqu̩d or stencilled. Or even a little bobble ribbon at the bottom might do the trick?
    Have a great week off!

  23. I love your console table but I really LOVE your wreath.

    Did you do a post on it? I looked but couldn't find it. How did you make it?
