The santos has lots of detail. She adds height to the table and she is just cool and funky. I even added a wood tag that I made into a chalkboard tag.
Speaking of details, vintage chairs usually have more detail than new ones. Don’t you love this blue chair? And it came with chippy paint.
These miniature portraits really appeal to me. Add in the effect of aging and they are twice as fun. They probably aren’t that old, but I look that they look aged.
Even the mirror is super old and full of detail. I found it at Round Top, click here for the story.
Of course my Round Top olive buckets have so much character, that I even used them empty. I finally added some lavender but will have to show you those photos in another post.
Again another new element is this lamp (well I have two of them). They may be new but they have lots of stuff going on with them. They really have an antique look.
Here is a view of the entire room. Of course the room itself has lots of detail too with the window trim and the wainscoting and the reclaimed oak floors.
So why add a plain something when you can add something with interest and appeal? Of course the more detail things have, the more you have to be careful that it all flows together. You don’t want things ‘fighting.’
So today’s food for thought is to think about details and layering them in a room for a very rich look.
How do you layer details?
And that’s a wrap. BTW, if want to get more ideas on how to get the Farmhouse French look, be sure to sign up for my free ebook, coming in November.
