I was reminded on instagram today that not everyone is actually enjoying spring weather right now… but everyone can bring a little spring into her home.
There’s no perfect formula for creating something artistic, obviously, but I thought I would share a few elements I try to incorporate into a spring vignette… in case anyone needs a little inspiration (don’t we all sometimes?!?).
I do think, though, that a little analysis can sometimes help. If you are one of those people who get frustrated by over-analysis, just look at the pictures from now on. 🙂 If you like a little metacognitive decorating, then read on, my friend…
I love these little spheres (on clearance at Hobby Lobby) because I think the shape echoes the earth – perfect for the season when it comes alive.
And the dark, texture of the antique books reminds me of rich, churned earth.
These mason jars in a straight, simple line offer the consistency of spring – new life comes, even when it seems hard to grasp.
The light, neutral colors offer the promise of longer days…
And the gilded frame reflects the sunshine.
Obviously, the rich, green foliage contrasts the soft neutrals, offering the strength and beauty of spring.
So see if this helps next time: geometric elements, a neutral backdrop to offer emphasis on the rich green foliage, a touch of gold… What are your go-to elements for a spring vignette?
