I had some friends over to the house today & as they were looking at the work we were getting done I commented about how my mood is a product of my surroundings. I truly which it wasn’t, but it is. & that got me thinking… I think that’s why I decorate spaces even if it’s temporary.. even if we are about to rip it up and re- do it.. & yes even if it’s a rental home and we are only living in it for 6 months, I will paint the bathrooms & re- do them. Yes, I did that. My mind is just so much more clear when I’m surrounded by pretty spaces, but that being said.. it doesn’t have to be crazy complicated, crazy expensive, or even crazy beautiful to make me happy. It can be the most simple thing on the planet like this simple spring centerpiece that is currently in our dining room….
I had these antique jugs lying around the house that I have collected over time & I wanted something simple & dramatic on the dining room table so I placed them in no particular order in the center of our antique farmhouse table & put some unruly branches that I picked up from our shop in the bottles to give that unkept and freshly picked off the farm vibe. It’s honestly that simple. Some bottles & some branches, but it’s perfect for that spring vibe in any room on any table. I’m all about bringing the indoors inside & what better way to celebrate those budding trees outside.
It’s crazy what two simple little elements can do huh? Like I said, it doesn’t have to be complicated & crazy to make a beautiful statement. The rooms just beyond this one are a crazy mess with construction, but while all that is going on at least this little dining room is looking pretty for spring. I have to know.. do you feel like some of your mood is dictated by the spaces around you? I’m wondering if I’m alone on this.
