For someone, who has an infatuation with tableware, I haven’t posted much about it. I actually enjoy shooting those as it is a fun and creative way to experiment with textures on a smaller scale. It’s an easy way of creating compositions that exude different moods while hoping to inspire others to have fun setting up a fun table.
Sconces Are Uhh-mazing And Here Is Why
First of all, I would like to share, I was never a big fan of sconces. I always associated sconces to be old fashioned and honestly didn’t pay them any mind. The trend dawned on me during the time I worked for West Elm. People were more keen on using sconces than table lamps, which were either due to lack of space in these ever so small Bostonian apartments or the client just preferred the look of a sconce. Living in this era where living spaces seem to get increasingly smaller, emphasizes how practical and essential these light fixtures can be.
The dining room is a pretty multi-functional room in our home. This is where we eat, work or craft up some DIY projects. It’s basically where a lot of the action and magic happens. It is also a space where great conversations & discussions are held and, of course, memories are made. I think it’s essential to maximize the way you live and use your domicile. It’s healthy and makes you feel happy and more at home, as it offers to house and manifests all layers of your personality.
5 ACCESSORIES THAT ARE TRENDING IN 2017
Accessories are really, what makes the room come to completion. It’s the cherry on the icing ( perhaps the icing on my all time favorite carrot cake! Recipe soon to be shared ;-)).
The more, the merrier. I personally love collecting them piece by piece, rather than going to Home Goods and just filling up carts, due to lack of patience for the process. In this case I think it’s totally worth waiting for the right piece vs. just buying things that are good enough or available now. Pinterest is packed with ideas, and I have noticed some statement pieces that could definitely serve as conversation starters that definitely would have an impact in any space.
Neon Light Signage
I love playing with the unexpected. This probably transcends from my personality: in between my ever so resting bitch face, you’ll find me rolling on the floor, because of a spontaneous laugh flash (yup that’s me! I get to 100 real quick!).
Unsurprisingly, I find my eyes drawn to neon light signage lately. Yes, it is a light, but this function becomes almost secondary. The light and the font collectively could be layered as an additional and unusual texture. Further, it’s a great way of bringing in some color since these lights can be made in different nuances. Besides that, it’s a fun opportunity to include typo into a decor scheme for all the font and quote lovers.
The Power Of Feature Walls
Feature walls can be very powerful. A surface you can use to accentuate and “embellish” a room. A great blank “canvas”, where you can express yourself and visually create a manifest of your style and simultaneously an extension of yourself. A great way to turn your place into a visual sanctuary, a place you can resort to and feel at home.
There are so many directions to take while planning a feature wall, such as placing a frame collage, a mural, wallpaper, oversized artwork or you can just simply write on the wall. The options are literally endless and that’s certainly the beauty of it.
The Essence Of A Feature Wall
I personally think it’s all about creating a visual moment. You are basically creating a life-sized vignette consisting of art pieces, furniture, and accessories. Important is that all pieces should complement each other and create visual interest, through a variety and preferably contrasting textures, shapes, and colors. Furthermore, you want to make sure the scale of each piece works in this collective.
Trial and Error Will Be Your Best Friend!
Along the process, you will realize that trial and error will become your best friend. By adding and/or removing items you can analyze and work your way towards your final look and intuitively approach your internal vision of your feature wall.
And let me tell you, it is ok to first think that one item is the perfect fit, but then when actually trying it out, you realize that it doesn’t work at all. take it as a lesson, because that way you know, what certainly doesn’t work and know, what to avoid in the next piece.
