Before blogging, the only time I thought about texture was in relation to food or fabrics. Texture in photos or vignettes? Not so much...well, to be honest...rarely.
I'm really a color and pattern driven person, but
I wanted to give the entertainment center a more summer look, so I decided to put together a learning (for me) vignette, using only things I already had around the house, and concentrating on contrasts in texture.
OK... are you bored to tears yet?
Well, here's how it finally turned out.
This is the left side of the entertainment center.
Not a lot of texture here, just the pine cones with a bit of Spanish moss which you can't see under them.
Since the books were mostly red, I turned them around so the texture of the pages would show. I would have preferred more neutral color books, but this is what I had so I went with it.
The basket and coral provide the texture here.
OK... on to the right side of the entertaiment center.
Faux hydrangea from an old wreath and two books to elevate them are the texture here...as well as the stems on the faux apples.
The center section has a lidded basket that holds napkins for when we "dine" on the coffee table.
I like the color and texture of these old books with their pages showing. The books ends have been painted several times. I can't decide what color to keep them but for now they'll stay white. I can't decide about the clock in the first photo. Should I leave it or not?
If y'all have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
This was definitely a learning exercise for me, and actually took me longer than I would have liked, since I didn't have a lot to work with...but, at least now I have something new on the shelves.
For those of you who are still awake :)... thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits.
