Re-Styling: Round Two

Styled Coffee Table
Re-styling round two!  So the interior styling class I took (taught by Justina Blakeney) is over, but I've kept working and rounding up pics to document the re-styling I did during the class. It's weird, on the one hand I feel like I didn't change much, but on the other I feel like things look a lot better and that it was a lot of work! I'm dead set on continuing throughout the rest of our house. Here's our old and improved coffee table, record console, and couch.

One of the things that struck me about a lot of the 'after' spaces was that there was more stuff than before and yet it always looked so much better. Like others whose 'before' pics were barren of stuff, I'd been assuming that less was more, but instead of looking artfully minimal a lot of the spaces just looked bare. More can be more, if it's the right combination put together in the right way.

I'm completely deluded about how much time I can spend reading. My stack of hoarded New Yorkers and fashion magazines stretched too far back to mention. It's so hard to admit you can't read everything! I'm hoping our more organized, less anxiety-inducing spaces keep me to a more edited collection, or that I find those 3 missing hours in the day.

Pants! He loves this linen throw — it's a lot comfier than the Swiss army blanket we were using. Also, I'm so glad we sprang for these kilim pillows as part of our wedding decor because I knew they would also look great on our couch. This was one area though where less did turn out to be more— too many pillows was no bueno.

  1. Ugh, I have the same reading delusions. I'm constantly recycling unread magazines. The room looks great! Pants, too.
