Decorating corners always perplexes me.
When I moved my favorite piece of furniture, the blue secretary, onto this wall
in the new dining room, I new something would need to happen in that corner.
It remained empty for a few weeks until I could come up with a plan.
Who am I kidding, I didn't have a plan.
I hung the three silhouettes of my kids first. I've been meaning to display these for over a year now.
Once they were up, the other wall was looking very lonely.
I picked up two square frames at the thrift store and took out the hideous artwork that was in them.
I added the two brass trivets I found on my shopping adventure with Carmel.
The squares frames were begging to highlight something circular.
These two trivets couldn't have been more perfect.
I also picked up this piece of art at the thrift store. I added a little rub n' buff to the frame.
This painting was a souvenir from a trip my husband and I took to Paris a few years back.
For some strange reason, it was hiding under my bed.
One the other side of the secretary is the antique map of downtown Cincinnati
that I purchased on a trip to Scott's in Columbus earlier in the year.
It sits just below three frames prints of landmarks in Germany that I picked up at a local antique store.
Since the secretary is on the small side and it is sitting on this rather large wall,
I needed to fill up some space.
My Bolivian Jew (beehive) plant is still hanging on, barely.
I had to let the other one go last week.
You're dying to know what is in this cabinet, aren't you?
About 3/4 of my daughter's tea set collection is now displayed in here.
Now that she is 10, going on 15, we don't have as many tea parties.
But it's still fun for her to get them out and play with them every now and then.
How do you deal with corners in your home?
