Last week after I took the photos of Bonnie's beautiful sunflowers in my music space, I decided to restyle the corner cabinet behind the piano for Fall.
I thought the blue transferware was a little busy and looked too "china cabinet" like, so I took everything out and started with all white.
Ha, you say, knowing me. That honestly lasted about two minutes. It was so stark and in contrast with all the color I have, so I had to spice it up a little.
I started by adding some texture with old books and color from vanilla-strawberry hydrangeas.
I also added silver pieces and that did help to make everything blend in a little better with the rest of my decor.
Instead of the silver punch goblets, I decided to use the white cups from my Italian pot de creme set, and I like how they lighten things up instead of soaking up the light as the silver can sometimes do.
I lived with it this way for a couple days.
Then I realized it still didn't have enough color for me, so I decided to add more starting with some iridescent orange carnival glass, then blue and white, and, well, you can guess how that went.
I'll show you how it came out tomorrow:-)
