How One Item Can Create Inspiration

Have you ever bought something specifically for a certain space and ended up putting it somewhere totally different? AND it turned out way better than you ever expected?!  And created inspiration?!

Well that definitely happened to me recently. I was wanting to change up the lighting in my living room and began looking through some different options. I decided that I wanted to put wall lamps on either side of my large windows in my living area. As I researched, I found the perfect ones from Thats What I Want Decor, but when they came in, they were too small for the space. But they were so beautiful, I knew I had to find a different spot for them! I needed inspiration!

That’s where the inspiration kicked in! I decided to put them on the other side of the room and wow!!! The result was unbelievable!!! This is the space before:

And this is the space after:

BIG difference! From a design standpoint, it was very boxy and closed off before and now it looks very open and airy. Which is the exact look that I was going for! And the lamps just look like they were made for this space! I found these darling burlap lamp cord covers from Pottery Barn.

Do you notice any other changes in the after picture? Yep! I painted some accents on the buffet to brighten it up a little! (You know how one thing always leads to another! The inspiration always comes!)

To me, this looks like a totally different corner in my living room. It not only brightens the corner, but it really brightens the entire room! This is one of those spaces that makes me smile every time I enter the room.
