I don't know why, but I have gotten to where I like to mix three elements into every arrangement I do. I like to mix feathers, traditional silk/faux greenery, and then dried elements. Since Christmas, I have revamped several arrangements around the house, and now I have added two more!!
Here's a closeup of the ones I shared back after the holidays once Santa had left the building!! NOTICE the three elements in each one....
Did you notice the feathers, greens, and dried elements?
Here's a closeup of the piece on the mantle....Again, feathers, dried and faux greenery all mixed.
I love this look!!
For some reason, I think having the three elements makes the arrangements look more customized, and it really helps them fit with my decor better!! Look at the arrangement by my front door. I have not shared this before. I added some more dried elements to it, and also added feathers, of course!!!
A little closer look....
Here's my revamped kitchen arrangement...I love having something tall on the island. I want it to be dramatic, and this arrangement fits the bill perfectly!! Again, notice the three elements in the arrangement. I think I'm stuck on creating things with the dried and feather additions!
Here's a larger view....(Ignore the crockpot on the stove!! DINNER!!)
I really like how this arrangement now helps the rooms flow together a little better. I have been trying to pinpoint what my "style" is, but I swear I have no clue. Sometimes I think it is Tuscan, sometimes I think it is more eclectic, then I have hints of traditional/Old World and also French.
I think I am a gumbo!!!!!! If anyone has any idea what I am, I'd certainly like to hear!!
