While at the grocery store the other day,
I always make sure I visit the floral department to see what goodies they had for me.
The roses were on clearance. So a beautiful bunch of creamy white roses landed in my cart.
When I arranged the roses in the Mint Julep cup and placed it on the table
in the sitting area of Master Bedroom,
it occurred to me how much I loved the simplicity of this classic arrangement of roses.
Also love the creamy white roses against the background of my light peach sofa,
but my Steel Magnolia friend Sherri would say, “it’s not peach, it’s Blush!” Or is it Bashful?
As I looked around the area,
I felt it was in dire need of a little refresh . . . less stuff . . . simplicity like the arrangement of roses.
There were two side tables on each side of the sofa.
They were removed and relocated to other areas of the house.
I replaced the side tables with plant stands for a more simple and airy feel.
The plant stands were of different heights,
so I placed the ironstone tureen with a Pothos plant on a stack of books
to create the same level of height as the other side.
I love using this particular plant as it is so low maintenance.
When I took a step back, I realized how much better this area seemed to feel.
Less heavy, less crowded.
I am moving on to more areas of the house, doing more “refreshing”
concentrating on more wow factors rather than lots of stuff!
And speaking of “wow factors”
Hop on over to visit Anita of Cedar Hill Farmhouse
where you can see how some French Country bloggers
add the “wow” factor to their rooms,
and one of them is me!
On a another note …. my blog went a little wacky yesterday.
It only appeared in it’s normal state on one browser, Safari.
Finally got it fixed, and lost this post in the interim…so I tried to re-create it
the best that I could…and I apologize for a double submission in your email of my previous post.
Sometimes blogging with its technical difficulties is not for the faint of heart … at least for me!
Have a most wonderful, wonderful day!!!
