Simple Styling

It's no secret that I enjoy creating vignettes around my house. If the light is good and I have a cup of coffee then there's a high probability that I'll be tinkering with a shelf, mantel, or table.

My advice today is this...the most simple vignette can sometimes be the most beautiful and appealing.

I picked up a new seventy-nine cent basket about a month ago at one of my favorite thrift stores (interesting baskets really appeal to me) . It was an interesting shape and a pretty color so I knew I'd be able to make it work somewhere - either in my home or in a client's home.

I stacked a few books (on top of our laptop), placed my new ceramic vase on top, and then set my new sculptural basket next to it. Simple, easy, pretty vignette. I just like how all of this really works together yet still highlights my treasured framed photos of the girls on the wall :)

It's as easy as that. By varying the height and the textures, I've created an interesting look to this console table in our living room.

And speaking of styling, I've added a few of my styling photos to my Portfolio page. Check them out if you get a chance and let me know what you think.
