We’ve had a break in the heat here in Atlanta and the weather has been great. With temps in the 90’s for over 2 weeks in May….I was thinking it’s going to be a long frizzy hair summer….haha
The other day I posted a picture in Instagram thinking “I got nothing good to post today so I will just slap up a small corner of my clean house”. You know “party clean”.
Well geez it must have been a slow day on “the gram” cause it got quite a few likes and that got me to thinking that maybe I will do a “look for less”….or “how to recreate the look” for y’all in case anyone is interested.
You know….all 20 of you! Hee Haw.
So here is the picture…..
It’s just a few of my favorite things…..
So let’s start with the magnolia branches. Lucky for me they are plentiful in the south and I have 3 “little gems” in my back yard which is basically a smaller version of a magnolia tree. If you can’t just run out in the back yard a cut branches then you can always go faux……[no judging]
Next up is my swan art which is original by Dawne Raulet. It is one of my favorite possessions and will be under my arm when I run out the door. In fact I want to be buried with it.
I found a few for you that won’t break the bank but still give you a good look!
Mix in some other art on the gallery wall…..Here are a few I used on my One Room Challenge from Minted! Also just to show you…..here I took an old frame and put a vintage letter in it….be creative…frame anything.
Add some black and white books…..all found on Amazon.
To stack on top of the books a black box with gold accents. Mine came from West Elm many years ago but I found a few for you that won’t break the bank!
I found the statues online and a few other items that I think could also work! These are for some height.
The other side….
I got my sunburst mirror at HomeGoods many years ago and I really looked for one similar that wasn’t crazy expensive and in stock. I was amazed to only find one…. but the other things will give you a round shape!
I found this bust at Ballard Design I actually found mine at…..wait for it….HomeGoods.
And to finish up….
Some crystal balls.
Did I leave anything out? Yes…. the old concrete bowl with the limestone water filtration balls. I searched everywhere for you and I did find some on Etsy and Ebay but they were already sold. I got mine at Scott’s and if you want some [and you aren’t local] then you will have to come here and get them!
That’s all I have for ya. Get to work creating your own vignette.
It’s Friday y’all!
Take it up a notch this weekend…..
