When my mom traveled to Alaska to visit my niece who lived there for a short time,
she bought some vintage Japanese fishing floats that she remembered as a child in Japan.
She carefully packed them all in her suitcase and gifted them to me and my sisters.
That was many years ago, when these floats were not as popular.
I treasure these glass floats and use them in my decor all year round.
In creating my summer vignette on the great room table
I wanted to incorporate as many elements/designs as possible.
I had added some faux succulents for added texture and color.
The ironstone vegetable bowl with the floats were previously in the guest room.
I felt it was a great start for the vignette.
Adding the demi john to the vignette seemed like the most logical thing to add
as it goes so well with the fishing floats.
I also needed something that was “new” to add to the vignette.
And another texture.
So I added this wicker based hurricane
and filled it with sea glass and a candle.
I purchased this hurricane when I went to the French Laundry Home shop last week.
This summer I have really been using many ivy plants in my home.
Just love the way it flows out of the container and trails on the table.
In keeping with adding blues to the summer decor,
I added my vintage blue and white transferware bowl with the ivy.
And we can’t have summer decor without a little bit of shells and coral. . .
placed in the wooden jewelry chest on the hearth.
Hope you enjoyed the summer vignette in the great room.
