“For Now” Decor

The curved staircase just off of our living room is kind of a focal point in our house.  I’ve got some ideas on how I’d like to decorate it– simply with a round rug and table and a big, leafy green plant.


But, until I find the rug and table, we’ve got a “for now” situation happening.  I shopped our house and found a pair of our dining chairs, one of our former coffee tables and a silver Target vase with some Pottery Barn botanicals to fill in the space.

And come Christmas!, our tree will go there, so we probably won’t be making any permanent changes until then.

    Your staircase is beautiful Megan! It's a neat area to create an interesting space but I understand how it can be difficult also. I have mega envy at your floor color by the way. 🙂

    I love how you shopped the house. It looks really pretty. And smart as you can easily put those into the dining room again when it's tree time!

    I love the look you created! And, it is always fun to shop your own home. If you tire of it, you haven't lost anything.

    For now?? I'd keep that. I love the look. Can I just move into your house? It's gorgeous!

    What a wonderful idea to put your tree there! It looks so beautiful. I like what you have done with the space for now. It makes a pretty vignette! I also like your future plans. The image you found is beautiful. 🙂 Happy weekend!

    Shopping around the house is the best. Especially with your house… you have so much to choose from. I think you did a great job with the chairs and table.

    I love how you can shop the house and make it look so pretty and thought out.

    It looks like a comfortable little nook you can sit and have coffee at.

    Ooooh is it time for the Christmas trees? 🙂 This is a lovely one. Getting warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. Think I need some hot chocolate!

    I love that space. I always wanted a round staircase 🙂
    I've had pretty good luck finding nice big round tables at garage sales the ones from the 80's that are light oak. they paint up really nice!

    It looks so pretty. I just love your staircase. Every time I see it I love it more. Although, I don't think I'd want to go up & down the stairs all day. Of course that could be why you look so great!

    I like your "for now" staging. It looks great. I have the same rectangular pillow from Target! I love it 😉
