The hutch in the living room has always been an intimidating space to decorate for me. The struggle seems to be finding the balance between too much and not enough.
If you stop by often, you already know how much I enjoy a simple look. On the other hand, I like a layered look this time of year since it seems more cozy. Sometimes merging both the simple and the layered looks can be tricky.
Which brings me to the hutch.
Starring at a stark naked hutch always gets me shaking in my boots - or flip flops whichever the case may be.
Thankfully, this seasons display went together surprisingly quick.
I think I've achieved that tricky balance between too little and too much that I enjoy so much.
I may be getting just a little better at this. LOL
I wanted to use a mixer of ironstone, grapevine, silver and wood to give the hutch a warm collected feeling. Pops of red here and there just make me happy.
A newly acquired wood box from the thrift store allowed me to add a hint of warm wood.
The bottom half of the hutch is a mixer of the same.
A new wood pedestal is the perfect place to place a white pumpkin. I almost didn't buy the pedestal but now I'm so glad I did.
Dried Hydrangea's from the garden helps me hold on to my garden just a little bit longer as everything outside gets crispy and brown.
The wire baskets don't match but I didn't think that mattered too much. I'm loving how they look on the hutch filled up with pretty items.
