Here's an example. I recently rearranged the wallscape over the sofa in my Family Room. Previously it looked like this.
I started thinking it needed something on either side.
Then came this.
Lived with it for a while, but still thought it needed something.
So I added these.
That seemed like too wide of a wallscape for me, so I removed the large mirror (it ended up over the sofa in my Living Room - love it there!) and came up with this.
Liked the concept better, but still wasn't quite there.
Tweaked some more and voila!
Perfection. Well, my idea of perfection anyway. I love it now and this is how it's going to stay for a long time.
I'll break down what I did.
These two coordinating prints were purchased at a yardsale for $5 for both.
I found these framed pictures at one of my favorite local decor shops and thought the colors went perfectly with the prints above. And I absolutely love the worn look of the frames. They actually have a weathered texture to them.
Next I added a floral arrangement that I made to the middle for some color and interest. I found the pretty red stems at the same shop as the pictures.
The pretty little mirror was a yardsale find for only $1. Of course I had to have it. I didn't even know where I was going to put it, but I think it completes this wallscape just perfectly.
The final touch was the wrought iron scroll I ordered from Hobby Lobby online.
I'm so happy with this wall now. I think it really warms up the room.
Oddly enough we will soon be remodeling this room. The walls are going to be painted, not sure what color yet, but I'm thinking something in a rich gold. New carpeting will be ordered and we'll be shopping for a new sofa/loveseat. I'll be looking for something neutral to complement these pictures. It's kind of backwards, I know. Usually artwork is the finishing touch, but in my case it's the inspiration for the whole room.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious day!
