New Lamp and Room Changes

Hello everyone!

Did you have a good weekend?  I managed to take some things to a consignment shop after cleaning my basement.  Gosh, it felt good to get rid of some things I was no longer using! That will really help me when I'm ready to decorate for the holidays.  I can finally get to all my boxes now.  LOL!

I wanted to share with you a new floor lamp in my family room.



Isn't it pretty????  I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.  It's from Better Homes & Gardens.  Yes, that means it came from Walmart!  I love the rustic look of it with the natural color of the shade.  I thought it worked well in my room with the grey and white and the stone in my fireplace.



Of course, with a new lamp, comes other changes to the room.  You know all about that don't you?  

I changed up my mantle to make it a little simpler.  I really missed my horse statue there, so I brought it back.


I flanked it with some potted faux paper whites.

I also switched around my pillows by adding some charcoal grey pillows to the chairs and sofa.






Now, where did the other stuff go?

The checked pillow is now in my sitting room.





And the wheat is now in my foyer.



My birdhouse is now in my sitting room too.  So, I didn't really remove any of my newest accessories.  They just landed in a different spot..........at least till the Christmas decorations come out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your rooms are always so pretty, Kelly. That is a lovely new lamp too. I wonder if our Walmart carries it. I will have to check. I just ordered some slipcovers for some older chairs that I would like to bring into our family room for extra seating. I chose slate (grey) because they didn't have white, just bone. Now that I see yours again, I may be returning them and sewing some.

Oh wow great find! I never go to Wal Mart because ours isn't very nice but I keep seeing those BHG ads that look wonderful. I love your lamp.

Kelly,
Everything looks so pretty. I love the new floor lamp. I just got done with my living room and need a floor lamp for by Terry's chair so I may have to check that one out. So pretty.

LUV the new lamp. The Mr. has been wanting a floor lamp and I have not seen any I liked. This is a contender for real. And Walmart?! Ha!

It's so hard to find a beautiful and unusual floor lamp - your lamp is wonderful. It's fun to just move things around a little, especially when you get a completely new look. -- Jan

I can't believe you found your floor lamp at Walmart! I'm going to have to pay more attention next time I visit (it's the only big store in our small town). Your home is looking lovely with your gray accents, Kelly.

Linda said...

Our treasures have a way of traveling around the house! Love all your changes and yet it all remains so home friendly! I could so live in your house!!!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I LOVE all the Better Homes stuff at Walmart! My dishes are BHG from Walmart. The last time I was there, they had a (free) magazine with all their BHG stuff in it. I brought it home and drooled over all the pretty things. :) Your lamp is gorgeous. I love the color with all your other decor.

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

the lamp really makes a nice statement. I can't believe how places like Walmart and TArget are selling those kind of styles. I guess they'll sell what people are buying, so there you have it. Nice changes

Down to Earth Style said...

I am a fan of floor lamps, too. Good find. Your home is so clean and pretty! Love the wood floors with all the light neutral colors.

Andrea said...

What an amazing lamp! Great find!!

Anne Boykin said...

Hi Kelly, We'll be moving everything around in a couple of weeks for Christmas but in the meantime, love the changes, love your style! Thanks for your lovely blog.

Love that new lamp! Your changes are always fun to see.

Patty Rumaker said...

I love that lamp and it looks like I need to spend more time in Walmart. Did you actually see this in Walmart or did you see it on their online site? Isn't it amazing how changing some accessories around can really change up a space. Your home is so charming.

Love BH&G at Walmart, a new Walmart opened up really close to us so I have been there a lot lately, just running in to get milk and bread, that's how close they are. I've bought a pillow and online a quilt and shams BH&G has a great affordable line I think.

I really like the touches of wood accents in your room. Nice contrast against your pretty whites! Your home always looks picture perfect, Kelly.

Beautiful floor lamp and decor looks amazing...

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I love your new lamp. Wow, Walmart is getting some good stuff.

Burlap Luxe said...

Oh, Kelly,
Your new floor lamp is amazing in so many ways. I love that there is a strong come back with floor lamps and you are 'going to get the wheels spinning with a look out for one that fits each and everyone's home that needs such lighting.

I also love the layout of your home, correct me if I am wrong but, it looks like you have turned your dinning area room into an extended living pace where you can sit and read or enjoy its space.
I just love multiple sitting areas all in one :)
Thank you for taking the time to visit my place where our little Pia Bleu is getting comfortable in tooo! Comfortable :)

See you soon and all the grace and beauty you create over here.

Xoxo
