How I Try to Inspire with Every Store Display

Did you know?

I am here to give alllll the inspiration for decorating your home & teach how to group items together. ❤️

I try to display items together around my shop that are of a common theme or color. For example, the metallic of the plane and the color of the vase in this picture both look great against the antiqued background of the Amazing Grace sign.

And you MUST include greenery when decorating with black & white.

Here’s how I’d use these items:

In a DINING ROOM: Just add a black & white buffalo plaid table runner and a centerpiece of eucalyptus in a clear glass vase. Display the smaller items pictured on a sideboard or in a hutch.

In a LIVING ROOM: Creating a grouping with this sign and some family photos, or add a mantle shelf underneath this sign so it is large enough to hang above your sofa. Use the small items as knickknacks on your coffee or side tables. Complement with a coordinating throw and pillows {NOT all in the same fabric – don’t make that mistake!}, seagrass baskets, and some pretty candles. Add a blanket ladder for visual interest and another place to display textiles.

In a BEDROOM: Display all of these items together on top of a chest of drawers or dresser. Pair with neutral bedding and plenty of textured accent pillows.. incorporating black and natural accent pieces throughout the room.
