Empty House, Table Runner, Desk Lamp

The transition in home decor after Christmas is always a little unsettling for me. The house feels empty, the warmth of the Christmas decor is gone, & the glow of Christmas lights is no longer there. I struggle with this time in every year in our home, & I know I’m not the only one who does. We have been making some pretty big changes around here so I have not focused to much on our winter decor. Also in the middle of all that, like most people, we are purging and getting rid of so much around here. I think I have daily pickups for home decor I am selling & furniture I am wanting to get rid of. The house is forever evolving. I wanted to show you a glimpse of the empty, the change, the transition, & some new. & please excuse the lighting changes in these photos… one minute it was bright & sunny & the next minute it was storm clouds & rain. I figured you wouldn’t mind….



This was an instagram picture I took of our empty living room after all the Christmas stuff was taken down. It kind of turned out pink, but I promise you that our living room is not pink 😉 But it does feel super empty! Ps. That coffee table got a big makeover today, can’t wait to show you!

The new table runner is from TJ Maxx for less than $20 & I think I need to go back & get another one. The table runner is great for every season & I’m excited that I finally found a neutral table runner that I love. This dining room seems so empty now & I’m getting anxious to bring it into spring or add some more love to the space. See those cute salt and pepper shakers? I’m sure some of you know where they are from, good old Target! I had to get them & I feel like they are season neutral.. kind of like gender neutral? Does that make any sense? Another thing I picked up this week was an awesome lamp from Lowes. I’m pretty in love.

I put this photo up on Instagram when I found it because I was so excited. We got it for an out of box discount & we got our military discount so we got a great deal! Please don’t mind me being a hot mess, I literally left my pajamas for about an hour that day to run to Lowes. It’s real life. It happens. Originally I bought it for our middle guest bedroom {which is done by the way! I can’t wait to show you!} but when I got it home I set it on the new side table I just painted {can’t wait to show you that either!} & I fell in love with it in our living room. More on this space later…


So, is your house feeling empty these days? We surely are making a lot of changes around here this week so I’m really excited to show you how we are progressing over here. Stay tuned. Find me on Facebook & Instagram for more updates. Have a great day! xx
