Switching Accessories Around

An easy way to get a different look in a room is to change your accessories from one place to another. Creating different vignettes with the same items, just arranged in a different way is fun, and allows you a creative outlet.

We've had rain for over a week, so I've moved things around, but still keeping the fall colors going.  I am thinking about how I want to decorate for Christmas this year and hope to keep it minimal and somewhat tasteful. I can go a little crazy trying to display too much!

I changed the mantel by placing the basket of books with fall colors there.  It was on a side table.

I bought a wire wreath form at the Dollar Tree last week, and made this burlap wreath.  I explained how to make these in this post.  Go there for instructions if you want to make one.  I have about $12.00 in this one.  I bought 2 large rolls of burlap ribbon at half price at Hobby Lobby, and the flower was around $2, the wreath form only $1.00.

I found this sweet sign at the Hen's Nest Consignment, and hung it from this shutter.

It was a quick change here, bu placing the wood pumpkin and a fall stem at this end of the mantel.

I found this piece of fabric in my stash and trimmed it with pinking shears, ironed it and laid it underneath the basket of books.

Also in the living room, I switched accessories on this table.

This shows the gallery wall and the top of the table where I switched accessories.  I changed the lampshade from aqua to burgundy for the fall.  I'm on the lookout for pictures to go where the two small ones at the top are.  I want to find some with old houses in them like the two larger ones.  I'm sure I'll run up on something before too long.

Just swapping a few items around freshens up a space. Use what you have and experiment by placeing in different areas in the room until you find a look you like.
(Then, tomorrow, change it again, LIKE I DO!!).  Can anyone say OCD??  I might have a slight tendancy towards it.  :)
