Using a China Hutch in the Living Room

I have the most adorable, shabby chic china hutch that I bought at a garage sale. I’ve moved it from my kitchen to my dining room and back again over the past year. Finally, I decided to try it in my living room. It’s a perfect fit for an awkward area.



I had already added new glass knobs and a burlap top. I accessorized it with some of my favorite things; a set of vintage books, pebbles, seashells, old b&w pictures, and my two favorite cloches. It ended up being more of a “curated” look, rather than decorated, which I love.

It has a fall feel to it, but in a more gentle way than bright orange and yellow. I might add some bold leaves as they begin to change. However, for now, it has a calm feel to it that is a perfect inspiration for the pursuit of simplicity.

The texture is what keeps it interesting.





The fun part is that we can keep adding found objects such as acorns, fossils, and leaves as we gather them on our nature walks.

I think my petite hutch has settled into it’s home, at last.
