Decorate the Top of an Armoire

Even though I’ve had “kitchen reno on the brain” I’ve also been doing the “decor shuffle”. You know that thing you do when you want to make some small changes to your rooms? That’s what I call the decor shuffle. Anyway, with winter in full swing here, I just felt like some change and I started with the bedroom armoire.

I’ve been trying to find the right pieces for the top of the armoire in our bedroom for about a year and I think I finally found what I was looking for…at least for a while. There’s no shortage of inspiration online to help you gather ideas and what I learned is that you want pieces that aren’t too small (they’ll get lost on a tall piece of furniture) and you don’t want too much clutter.

Love this look with the warmth of the wood tray behind the picture.

Pretty and simple is a good way to go, like this basket with dried flowers and clock.

Do you find yourself doing the “decor shuffle” to chase away the winter blues?

Now that the “shuffle” is done in the master, I’m going to get back to my kitchen cabinets. 🙂

  1. Kristi, I love the photo with the flowers in the vase. So simple, yet so classy. I do like the way yours is decorated too. I have the top my hutch to decorate. Haven’t decided yet what to do. It has a big hump in the center so I can only put things on each side. Hmm, I’ll have to do some internet searching.

    • That’s my favorite one too MJ, I think it is the simplicity and the use of color and texture. It would be great to have real live flowers like that all the time…I’d just settle for a live green plant at this point. 😉

      Have a great week my friend.

  2. Love your inspiration pics and the clean and simple look you went with for your armoire. I have one tall and skinny piece of furniture which is a dark wood and glass and houses all the crystal my MIL handed down to me. I have two large brown jugs on top of it that I picked up at a garage sale for $5 bucks. .,
    I can’t say that I have ever shuffled anything. I have enough trouble “styling” shelves, tables etc and can never get it to look right.

    • Hi Shirlee. So great to hear from you. 🙂 I have times when I feel that I can’t get a look right too. The armoire was one of them but I’m happy with it for now. I don’t like a lot of “stuff” so trying to style a piece without having a lot of clutter can be a challenge.

      Thanks so much for dropping by.

  3. Love how these look! I have a collection of glass bottles I keep meaning to do something with, but most of them are interesting liquor bottles, which means I have to be SUPER creative in how to use them without giving off the “yay we drank way too much booze!” look. :p

  4. I don’t know why but I have never thought about putting something up there but it totally makes sense! Plus! I am always looking for places to display my new found projects. Problem solved! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Kristi I have to agree with you on the decor shuffle! I just reshuffled my foyer and am so happy with how it turned out! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful vignette at Share Your Style this week, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
