I have many flaws in my decorating, but one of my biggest was that I wasn’t using the full height of my tall ceilings. The amazing Tom from TWF Designs has taught me so much in just a few short weeks, but the 2 tips I’m going to share with you today are some of my favorite!
Last time we talked about Tom working his magic undecorating of my house. I just had (and still have) so much going on. I have to learn to simplify and that I don’t always have to decorate in squares.
On to today’s tips…
My other big mistake was that everything stopped at about the same height. I had learn it was ok if everything wasn’t at eye level. I have these beautiful tall ceilings and I wasn’t using them.
Notice how the picture and the tree are the height. Notice how much higher my ceiling is? That is a no no, I’m not using the whole height of my room.
So how do we solve that?
How about using a taller plant?
Notice the tree is now taller than the bookcase. I tried to create a little height difference.
Also, how about moving a great piece of art to above a book shelf?
Stop with the fake plants. Oops! I used the fake plants from Pier One because I thought it would be easier than taking care of real plants. I mean come on, I kill every green plant I bring into this house!
Here’s the trick. SELF WATERING POTS! So simple, all you do is simply fill it with water once a week and it will deliver the right about of water to you plant.
Oh, and yes they will eventually sit inside a decorative pot. I just haven’t found one I like yet.
Now these are just little touches. I promise bigger changes to come! Remember, it’s a journey. It won’t happen instantly. Hopefully next week we’ll be talking about the new art and pillows in my living room!
I want to hear what you guys think. What kind of designing tips do you need?
