It needed some more visual weight. I did a little basket swapping to see if that would do the trick. I snuck into Charley's nursery while she was fast asleep so I could swipe her natural colored baskets and replace them with the white ones from the family room.
I think it's just what this corner needed. The darker baskets balance out the big picture on the other side of the fireplace, and just make the shelf seem more substantial in the room.
While I was at it, I rearranged the mantle decor and moved the suitcases next to the chair. I'm kind of obsessed with rearranging things, even in the smallest ways. It's just so refreshing.
Oh! I almost forgot! I'll be back on Friday to share what I did with $20 in a thrift shop, all thanks to Young House Love and their Unofficial Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. Pin It
