oh yeah baby ... spot on!!!I think our hearts beat at the same time...I KNOW, I KNOW, i've said this before
I need a larger castle!
* VICKY-girl~~~ I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE LARGE SCALE "ANYTHING" TOO!!! (It's a charming way to avoid clutter, IMHO!)That first pic, w/ the REEEEALY overscale "clock", is OBVIOUSLY incredibly STRIKING (Oh! Get get PUN? Ha!). ANYWAY, I simply ADORE the freshness/crispness of all the stark white (contrasting w/ the dark accents), the rug AND the open door leading to what appears to be a luscious outdoor area w/ a super lantern... (I "do" question the INDOOR CHANDY, tho... do YOU?)...Note this is just MY OPINION, as I'm certainly not a "pro", but I'm thinking that hanging the clock a tad lower, then placing a lonnnng, dark, old wooden bench, MUCH LIKE the charming table there (only lower of course), might have "worked" a little better... "scalewise"... (You're the pro here, and if it's ok to ask, I WOULD like to see how YOU feel about that!)~~~As ever, I ALWAYS enjoy visiting you & seeing what you have for us~~~ it's ALWAYS so delightful & fun, & so often very thought-provoking, too!!!~~~"Who luvs ya, baby?!?!"~~~Big hugs,Linda
Love the photos, especially the second one. It belongs to my friend Emilie Bolton, from Fredericksburg!! Love that vintage pig print!!
Me too, Vicky! I love a very DELIBERATE piece in a room. Not only is it typically a great focal point, but even the smaller pieces seem to become more important. Love that you've reminded me of this. I've been struggling with a mantelscape this week. I'm clearing the whole shebang off and getting one really grand accessory. So much fresher for Summer, don't you think?
I agree. It's fun to play with scale when you have the right space to do it in. The clock face in the first photo is a bit much for me... I guess I'm not that bold! Or maybe it's the dark/light contrast that makes it too harsh. LOVE the vintage piggy/hippo/? print though. Big but soft.
What beautiful photos!I'm better about using larger things to decorate with. I think it's a learning process.Thanks for such an inspiring blog - I always learn from you :)
I so want a huge clock. haha- I just had a naughty thought.
That enormous clock made my heart skips a "tick". You know, the name of my blog makes it even more exciting. Thanks for sharing your wonderful posts with all of us.Charla
That clock (in the 1st picture) is gorgeous! LOVE IT!
I completely agree! I just removed some furniture (that I liked) to give my rooms some "air". Love all of the clocks. I seem to gravitate to clocks and mirrors!
I love large scale... once I got Axel Vervoordt's book a while ago I realized everything I have is so puny and thats why things can get cluttered looking... oh well, can't replace it all right :)
Linda, I could not agree with you more, as always! You are a designer my friend, you just don't need the money! lol
I want that big clock, Vicky!...Christine
