Country Living has been bringing us gorgeous decor and inspiration for years. I use to have stacks of their magazines I thumbed through again and again. So these great ideas are from www.countryliving.com.
The top photo is a great example of "anchoring" a piece of furniture. Here they've taken a buffet, or sideboard, and arranged decor on the wall above it so that it looks like it was supposed to be in that very spot.
The lines of the furniture piece is in line with the wall display above it.
Love the platters with the spoons. And the frames.
Here's a sparkly idea of taking white Christmas tree lights and putting them into a clear jar. You don't need to wait around for the holidays to do this.
This is taking embroidery hoop art to new heights. Put bleached or unbleached muslin or some light material in the hoop, and place family photos in the center. You could swap them out when desired. What a cute idea.
What a great idea to use "an illuminating" stamp or graphic, and putting it right where it belongs.
Some people would not have put these framed pretties over the wall paper, but here it seems to work. The leaves are so pretty set off by this type frame. In fact what pulls this look together is the sameness of the frames.
This is a novel idea. Take the shade material off the lamp "innards" and use them for tables. The actual shades are shown off to the right-hand corner. I wouldn't have thought of this in a million years. How about you?
What whimsical happy clock faces! You can purchase the makings to operate a clock at hobby stores or online. The sky is the limit on what you put inside. Love the moon!
Accessories are the icing on the cake in decorating. Shop the house and move things about to give your home a fresh new look.
