Decisions, Decisions...Which do you like?

I needed to find two photographs to go in two frames for a client's entry way console table.  I turned to Etsy, of course.  Etsy is a fantastic place to find inexpensive fine photography.  I was looking for something botanical - mostly, and something predominantly in aqua blues and greens.  I fell in love with a close-up of the center of a blue flower (shown in the center of the collage).  I am still deciding on what other photo I want to place with it.  I think I've narrowed it down to a couple of my favorites....Which do YOU like with it?

  1. All very pretty images. I think my favorite to compliment your flower photo is the dandelion on the bottom (6)

  2. They are all so beautiful! I love 1,3,7 & 10. I would especially choose 7 if green was a color to incorporate. How fun- I bet it will turn out great. I love Etsy! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog today- it led me to yours. :)

  4. I think I'd have to say it's a toss up between 6,7 and 8. Really I don't think you could go wrong with any of these. I'm dying to know which you chose.

  5. I love them all, but I would choose number 4. Simply because it balances the focal point of the other picture. :)

    Much Love,

  6. Love love love #6- I think the softness compliments the edges of the first one, and the color echo the other with out being "matchy"! The approximate same focal length holds them together as a pair.

  7. I think number 6. Just the right touch of similar color, without being too much

  8. I like 6 as it mimics the shape without being shiny like the bubbles and smaller in size so your main photo won't be smothered and lost just accentuated!

  9. I love #6, as well. Very soft and beautiful, and I think it would compliment the first photo very well.

  10. I vote for number 6 too!..............it's super awesome,definitely go for it:)

  11. I agree, #6 is the way to go. The two photos compliment each other by being so different, each adding to the impact of the other and the blue being the common color unites them.

  12. #6 is my pick! The subtle hint of blue pulls perfectly with the main pick without it being overwhelming. They compliment each other nicely!

  13. Number 6. It picks up the color and suggests the circular imagery without repeating it. Very subtle,interesting compliment to the center photo. Lovely photograph.

  14. I would pick number 6, I think that it compliments the other photo very well.

  15. I vote for number 6! How exciting!

  16. I also love number 6. It is the perfect match to the original photo. It is the definitely best choice.

  17. Definitely #6 in my book!! The perfect compliment to the other one.

  18. three prints would be more zen ;)

    6 and 9 would be my choices...

    6 because of the softness

    9 because of the juxtaposition of the distance.

    but really... all the choices are great.

  19. ooooooo or 10... 10 has perfect colour match.

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches



In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.

Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.
via
Add pops of color.
Elle Decor
Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:


This is what it looks like now!

A special thanks to Palmetto Street Church of God for allowing me the privilege to help make their foyer shine!

How to NOT make a TV a focal point

I like T.V. just as much as the next person - every Monday night you will find me right in front of it glued to The Bachelor/ette!  Even still, I don't like it when a huge flat screen T.V. is the main attraction in a space.  I don't think a T.V. necessarily needs to be hidden from sight,  just placed somewhat inconspicuously.  There are all sorts of nifty contraptions out there for framing, making it appear as a mirror when off, having a motorized framed piece of art slide over it,etc - all fantastic solutions, but all very expensive solutions. Below are some awesome ways to tastefully place a T.V. in a room without it being the focal point of the room or breaking the bank.

Surround it with art.  All the blacks in the art help to make the black screen not stick out so much. source
