It always starts with a vision. The gazebo was an existing fixture in the shop, but sometimes seemed busy and over kept. Now the space is reserved and soft even though I've incorporated chunky wood and industrial metal. I'm fond of this look. It's an easy look to achieve in your home too.
Here's a smaller version of that look. Natural driftwood embellished with a preserved soft blush rose. The dark amber wood beads really pop, don't they?
I tend to stay in my comfy zone. Which in case you haven't guessed, is mostly neutral. I love neutral in a way that sometimes is hard to explain. However I also like color splashes.
When I create something new for the shop, my mind typically leans towards neutral. Over the many years of making things, I usually travel the neutral road. Sometimes I slip into the other lane briefly, but I always go back to neutral because I love it!
New Leather & Linen Cuffs. I had a stash of leather bands that were just kind of sitting. Love the blend of old with new. Each Leather and Linen Cuff also has a vintage brooch attached.
My shop orchid has been blooming since February! She must really love sitting atop the perfume counter. I water her delicate roots from the bottom. She seems to like that too!
Spring is slowly, every slowly attempting to turn to summer.
It will fly by as it does, and I'll need to stop every now and then and take in the scenery.
Don't forget to do that every once in awhile.
Treat other's as you wish to be treated.
