effortless styling...


Hope everyone enjoyed a great weekend, we spent more than the usual amount of time in
front of our tv rooting for USA, and especially our hometown girl, Missy Franklin!
 We also knocked out some big pieces in detail boy's room (sneak peek on Wednesday).

One of my favorite parts of decor is styling tables, mantles, bookcases, etc.
Today I'm sharing tips on where I start, and my go-to items I include for effortless 
compositions over at my sweet friends, Nancy & Bethany's blog,
Powell Bower Home here.
They're a dynamic duo, a mother/daughter interior design team with a passion for
 art, design, blogging and four-legged friends!

I'm assuming you've all heard the advice, use odd numbers of items...3,5,7
and that you know, books and trays are your best friend.
For my other four favorite elements that make it simple to put together a
display and where I start.... head on over right here.

I love simple details that makes a great design inside the apartment. Small details bring colors to life.

These are all such pretty vignettes. Love the ladies over at Powell Brower Home as well...... oh, and Go USA! :)

With books and trays comes instant interest in a room setting.
I noticed it was quiet in blogland over the weekend. I think a fair few of us might have been cheering our countrymen and women on!

Such pretty vignettes. I have a few areas I need to spruce up around here! Have a great week!

You should see how many times I've already moved stuff around on our dresser. My husband officially thinks I'm crazy, but you have to keep doing that in order to get it the way you want it (right?) I didn't realize Missy Franklin was from your town - i've really been enjoying the Olympics - the swimming especially. Can't wait to see more of Detail Boy's room!

Lovely post and I love working on styling. It is such a personal touch and there are so many options that make it fun to see how a vignette evolves. Sometimes, it can be frustrating when you know you are not quite there but it is so great when one achieves the required results. Thank you, Pam!

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

Wonderful styling! I'm always baffled by how to display my book collections. Thank you for the visuals!

Kristen said...

I'm with you, I love books. And trays, I can never have enough. Also, everything does seem to look best clumped together in odd numbers, so why is that???

Eclectically Vintage said...

Two of my favorite things - books & trays! I actually think I need a tray intervention!
