Spring Cleaning, that is!!!
As the Seasons change,
On Crooked Creek, so does the decor.
Although we've recently received 20+ inches of SNOW,
the sun is streaming through the trio of windows flooding
our upper level Living Room with glorious light!
So~o~o. . .
I took advantage of this sun filled day to snap a few photos
once the deep Spring cleaning was completed!
I'm still striving to streamline!
Each time I dust a table top, I adjust the amount of accessories
keeping it as close to a minimum as possible.
This truly is easier than I had imagined. . .
especially being determined to stay true to my Traditional roots.
Our upper level Living Room, On Crooked Creek,
has two focal points. The largest is the Entertainment Center.
But the focal point you see as you enter from the hallway
is our vintage sewing machine cabinet seating area.

Herein lies the problem. . .
Beneath the cabinet is the foot feed!
While you may have to look closely to see it,
that dark metal curved piece is at eye level
when seated on the couch!!!
While I absolutely adore this cabinet,
I am continually trying to disguise
the irregularity of this magnificent heirloom!
Today, I began with a scarf.
I placed the base of the lamp atop the scarf
to give me the placement for my first pleat.
Two pleats were all that was needed
to hide the foot feed.
Next, I placed my bird statues
with a twig nest around the base.
Added some classic title books. . .
and some soft hued hydrangea to the bronze wall pockets!
Shedding a warm glow of lighting
adds such a romantic ambiance to this vignette!
While keeping a streamlined appeal,
I felt something was needed for the lamp side
to balance the vignette.
Retrieved from Studio One
is a vintage brass ink well!
The tranquillity that floods my soul
is much liken to that of the sunshine flooding the room!
All that is left to complete this area
is to switch~out the decorative pillows!!!
All Winter long,
I've used the brown velvet rosette lumbar pillows. . .
and while I adore the harmonious hues
in the ivy pillows, the scale is a bit off.
After placing the gold satin lumbar cushions
behind the ivy accent pillows,
it appears to be a perfect fit!

Our weatherman is forecasting another Snow storm
for the weekend. ( We missed this one, but my family and friends in the Kansas City Area were plundered, once again!)
So~o~o. . .
regardless of the weather outside our windows,
On Crooked Creek,
little~by~little. . .
Spring is arriving with seasonably softer hues!
Until next time. . .
