I ordered a Utility Basket from Pottery Barn and it arrived today. I tried it in several places and in turn I had to rearrange most of my accessories in my living room and dining room. I think it came together fairly well, but I might continue to tweak things. Here are some pictures of living room, dining room and basket.
|A length of burlap, sunflowers - gift from hubby, large black bowl, and grandfather's vintage books. The larger one is The Werner Universal Educator.|
Basket from Pottery Barn, Blue throw from American Vintage Furniture, as well as, little bird and berry wreath.
Added a touch of Fall with a small ceramic pumkin filled with candy treats.
I love the coziness of the living room. The earth tones of the chairs, shades, rug and curtains work well against the blue walls and the blue sofa and chair. The black painted rocker with its oak seat and the black painted coffee table with its oak top pulls in the other black pieces, as well as, complementing the brown tones in the room. The baskets and throws pick up the blue and brown color scheme. Another pumpkin sits on the black side table, a subtle shift toward Fall.
