Since it's Friday, I thought I would leave you with a pretty picture:
I have liked this image for a long time. I like all the different textures and objects in this vignette, even though the range of colors is pretty limited. I like the contrast of all the round objects (clock, lamp, gourds, spheres) and the angular table, trunk, and books. The fresh green leaves make all the difference here, though; imagine how much different this corner would look without that greenery!
I recently was looking through interior designer Richard Holley's portfolio and found these images of the same bedroom:
Bits and pieces are still there -- the parsons console table, trunk, gourd lamp, upholstered bed. But I still really like that combination of the antique screen and the stacks of design books in the first image. Most of all, I think I really like the branches, and that's a look that's really easy to replicate in your own home, especially now since it's time to trim back all those trees and shrubs in your garden.
Have a great weekend!
