Thank you all for your nice comments about my living room. It seems many of you like the idea of no rug – at least during the summer months. I must say it is a lot easier to keep clean! I am not sure how the feet will feel come winter but that is a while away.
I had several people inquire about the large basket. It is a vintage French covered transport trunk.
I purchased it from Bonny Neiman Antiques and I am absolutely thrilled! Bonny was so nice to work with and I highly recommend her shop. I also bought the pretty mirror which hangs above the bed in the master bedroom from Bonny.
To be honest when I bought the basket I really did not pay attention to the size and had no idea where I was going to put it.
At first it found a home in the family room. Although it looked fabulous, the trouble was, now I was left with no place for the wagon. Then I came across this picture.

A perfect solution!
I immediately hauled the basket upstairs and in the bedroom it went – making a perfect bedside table.
I love the extra layer of texture it adds to the room and how it is a bit unexpected.
I have to admit I was fortunate that things worked out so well.
Have you ever purchased something without knowing where you were going to place it? I would love to hear what you bought and where it ended up!
