Objects from nature are a wonderful way to accessorize a room adding texture, color and beauty.
I like a subtle color palette of greys and whites, and have a tendency to collect objects within that palette, and recently it has been things related to the sea.
I saw one of these giant clam shells at the Farm Chicks show in June and have been pining after it ever since. Unfortunately the price was a little steep, and since I had already blown my budget, I didn’t pick it up. However, I have been hunting down coral and managed to pick a few up pieces. Good thing people travel to the mountains and drop their coral along the way!!
I love how it looks combined with the antlers in this display.
The beauty in creation abounds in texture, architectural form, size and shape. Once your eye is open to the possibilities that nature provides, it is limitless to what you can find, drag home and proudly display on your dining room table!
Coral looks stunning with this sea fan and amongst these gorgeous urns!
Here, natural elements have been added in with white ironstone . . .
I love the drawings on the wall that carry the theme from this tabletop display . . .
Well, it has been a fantastic week for me,
my son and his new bride were able to come and stay for a week and the time has just gone way to fast!
So, as I wave them off to begin the new chapter of their lives,
I can focus on reworking my booth at the Antique Mall and maybe finally get some pictures! So much has sold in my first month that it has taken on a whole new look.
I can see that the challenge is going to be restocking and keeping the “look” or mood that I originally started out with!
Maybe I’ll start a mood board or style file and keep it with me to stay focused! Can’t always have pinterest with me . . .or can I?
