Accessorizing is so much fun! Today, I would like to share where I am heading with my style this year. I'm bringing in some darker woods, more pottery, organic pieces, and earthy warm color tones. This really is so much more me. I tried going a little lighter and brighter, but I just couldn't grasp how to throw it altogether.
I had another crazy idea. Here it goes, I took apart the hutch shelving piece from our office unit and I placed it on top of my electric fireplace in the kitchen. I did this for two reasons; to add height and to bring in the darker wood tones which are so reminiscent of Tuscan Decorating.
Just about all the items you see on the shelves were purchased at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. Yee, hah!
Oh, I did get the dessert cloche at Ross for $6.99 and I filled it with a few Wheat Thins.
This week at Hobby Lobby they have the glass jars filled of veggies on sale for 50% off. I picked up 3 and will show the other two soon.
I think this display is bright and cheery! The brown, the gold, and the greens go nicely together.
I added two Topiary Plants on each side of the shelving unit.
I needed some height, so I sat two coffee books on the pedestal and then sat the olive jar on it.
If you have shelves that aren't tall enough for some of your items with decorative tops, simply take the ornate tops off and use them to decorate with.
Lastly, it's always nice to add a small lamp when possible, so at night the shelves look nice and cozy!
The two pieces matched perfectly, so I thought, why not? ;)
This is my new favorite piece...
And this one, too!
So, there you have it....more Tuscan-izing in the kitchen! I can't wait to show you how this is all coming together.
Also, thank you *SO* much for all of your sweet comments on my last post. I have all my kiddos home until Monday, so I have been unable to respond, but please know how much I appreciate them!
