This is the vignette with the hydrangeas, a candle, & burnout velvet pillow filled with lavender (on the left) & a beautiful box(right) & pair of vintage shoes with just a touch of lace on the toe. Those shoes are a new treasure found at Lone Star Antiques last week.Are these shoes not the cutest? I got them already done like this. Thought they were perfect for this spot.OK, here's the view of the whole armoire standing next to the bed. Reflected in the mirror on the front of the armoire you can see our sleigh bed with all the pillows & a photo (not a new one I can assure you) of me on the opposite wall. Also, in the picture is my wonderful mannequin that I love!
The next photo I am looking up at the top of this scene.
Now Mary, standing on the bed so you can get a better view of the top of this & you will see I have a huge arrangement in a white vase. The greenery brings a softness to the setting & the white flowers POP & give interest. Also up there are two hat boxes with Victorian Women on them (I happen to love Vintage Women Images) & a miniature mannequin. It helps to use similar items or things in a theme when trying to do a room or piece.Here is another view standing on the bed. I have added some cute vintage miniature hats sitting on antique spools. This pulls the color & theme in with yet another item building on the theme. And here we are back at the left side of the armoire once again, here's the mannequin & the little arrangement next to it. See the hat box with yet a different sized mannequin. Tying all those elements up aren't we? Different colors in this but same theme.
The fireplace, mantle & my wonderful picture I love so much.
Moving around past the fireplace there is a huge picture window (which you can see in the very first photo) & my chaise lounge. This is one of my favorite places to sit & drink my coffee every morning while I watch the birds in the birdbath right outside the window. And as I said, I don't look like that anymore but, my husband loves this photo & it is on his side of the bed so... I hope you have enjoyed the tour & part one of topping off large pieces of furniture. I will post another piece soon. Have a great weekend.
