Striking a balance
I love the built-in shelves in our living room – they
add such interest to our room –
For Summer decorating, I tend to lean toward
blue and white.
This is what the shelving looked like before.
I love the look of these old door knobs.
I am fascinated that the flower
depicted in a lot of old blue and white
objects is the Peony
Vintage objects add a touch of interest.
I completely cleared the shelves, cleaned them
and began with central pieces – my girls.
I just love these girls! They seem to go with everything!
Then I alternated blue and white objects with
Milk glass objects – alternating them as I went
down the shelves.
I tried to complement objects as I went
not to completely match both sides, but to
strike a balance.
I gathered books that were bound in blue, black
green and cream.
I did end up with some that were purple and pink,
but, they seem to go pretty nicely.
After the larger items were placed,
I added smaller touches to fill in.
Somewhere I read that the shelving looks best
when there’s about one-third air space left.
The Milk glass seem to be able to flow through
The nearby small tables were given a touch of
blue and white too.
What do you think?
Do you work a system, a plan a
formula when placing items on your shelves.
I am pretty pleased with the end results.
I do appreciate you stopping by
