Arranging Wall Art For New Looks
Take a look around your home and consider arranging wall art in different ways–like moving some to different rooms. Sure you might have some nail holes to fix but you may like the new look better. And it’s basically free decorating.
I’m also showing how washing cushions and a great deal on an outdoor pillow made the porch feel like new, and what I’m wearing lately.
It’s Five Faves time with Annie and Cindy!
There was a domino effect for me when I wanted to put this painting of Big Sur by Pat Huber in our bedroom.
I like the colors of the painting with the rug and being able to see it each morning.
Note about how high to hang art: A good rule of thumb is to have the center of the art about 58″ from the floor. But I like to “eyeball” it as it also depends on the height of what it relates to underneath it and the ceiling height.
Foyer and Wall Next To Staircase
Since there was a blank space next to the staircase, I decided to separate the antique shell prints and hang them vertically (but in the same line of vision).
This finishes off the foyer now. I was afraid to put nails in the wallpaper (I always am nervous about that), but I like this so much better than blank.
We brought a round mirror from upstairs for above the French commode since the shell prints were gone.
Which meant a little restyling but now our home has a new look for free!

Cleaning The Outdoor Ladies’ Loft For A Fresh Feel
As much as I love having outdoor spaces, they do require cleaning to remove dirt and mildew. Recently, I washed the all pillows and the Patio Lane cushion covers in the washing machine. The folding chairs were sprayed with a mildew remover, hosed off, and let dry in the sun.
The new outdoor paisley pillow is on clearance at Pottery Barn.
Check out these other outdoor pillows on clearance before they are gone:

Easy Care Comfy Dress
I showed you this comfortable poplin cotton dress last weekend in a collage. I’m wearing it here before going out to dinner (also showing some of the available patterns). This is a small Regular and it comes in Petite and Plus.
