New Additions to the Family…

my Living Room decor family that is…..
Yup I went shopping at my favorite store…..Home Goods.  Oh how I love you.  You always seem to have something that I love, something that I can use or need.
I knew I would need something new for this corner, because the lanterns that are….well were there….will live in the Sunroom once we get to that project.  So I’m always on the look out for something that would fit the space nicely.  Here is what the lanterns looked like in this corner.  I really liked the look for this corner, but I knew I had to find something else at some point.

So when I came across these gorgeous candle stick holders at Home Goods and that very funky white vase, I knew I had to buy them for this corner.

I’m going to live with them there for a couple of weeks before I take any tags off.  I might play around with the arrangement but I think these are keepers for this corner.

I’ve also been on the look out for something else purple to add to the room.  I have dark purple pillows on the ottomans in front of the window, so I needed to bring a little more purple into the room so that the pillows made sense in the room.  I also have some craft paper that I plan on wrapping those books with that have some purple in it too….just to make the books prettier.

Here are those purple pillows I’m talking about.

While we were on vacation in Greenport, Long Island, we went walking along the coastline at Orient Point State Park to look for some driftwood, rocks & shells.  Link to our vacation post.  Here is one of the small pieces of driftwood we found.  I love the look of driftwood and I didn’t want to buy an expensive piece from a store, so this was nature giving back for free.  More on the other pieces of larger driftwood that we found in another post soon.  For now this little guy will stay here, but he might move around the house some.

Let’s get a better look at the color of the candle sticks I bought.  They are a pretty turquoise with brush nickel accents.


I love the texture that this funky white vase brings to the room.  I don’t know what it is about this design that tickled my fancy, but I had to buy it.

The cost for each piece, tall candle stick $19, shorter candle stick $16, white vase $19.  So for $54 I was very happy with the new decor that will live in this corner now.

So has anyone bought any candle stick holders or candles lately?  What colors are you loving right now for them?  What room did you put them in?  I would love to hear all about it.  Spill the details in the comments section or leave a link to your post or to the product.  Let’s see the prettiness that everyone is loving right now.

Have a great day everyone!!!  :)
