Over the weekend I finally scored the piece I’ve been searching for all year; the elusive black commode. It is the final element that I needed to complete client W’s first floor. I’m pumped, they are thrilled and now all there is left to do is add the finishing touches to the tabletop.
Styling is one of my favorite and least favorite parts of decorating. I love it, because when done right, it makes a home feel complete. (Seriously, a room without any accessories usually lacks soul.) But, sometimes I dislike it, because it takes finesse and tweaking. The importance of scale and proportion are heightened with little vignettes. It’s a “skill” I continue to work on. Today, I’m studying some of my favorites, and wanted to share them with you…
Shall I mix figurines in varying heights like Keith Johnson?

A stunning lamp, grass ball and a pile of books?
Lots of layers and leafy goodness?

Three statement elements?
Lamp, blue and white pottery and colorful books or boxes?

I’m going to take a little time to plan this out. And then… let’s get this job photographed!! Holla!
