Magazine and catalog photos inspire me; I’ll even try to re-create a particularly pretty vignette in my home. It’s kinda like a hobby. I think. Or maybe it’s just that I get bored staring at the same things. The contents of the two large glass jars that live on my family room coffee table are a great example: I redo them every season…and sometimes for different holidays. Right now? I’m thinking “winter.”
Did you see this simple, but attractive tableau (above) in a recent Pottery Barn catalog? You can buy the supplies directly from Pottery Barn or do what I often do…gather up items I’ve collected over the years and through the seasons, spread them out and decide how to arrange them based on my inspiration photo. Here’s how I decided to re-create the tableau, albeit my way:
It was fun to meld the two disparate bundles together to create what I think(?) is a pleasing whole.
