Today my friend Heather from Decor Fix asked me to share one of my simplest decorating tips.
And because I’m a little in awe of Heather.
(I mean wait until you see her style).
use I have a tip that I totally thought I kind of invented.
I said yes.
Are you ready?
Have a notepad in hand?
Coffee cup and maybe a blueberry muffin for the journey?
Here it is.
Here’s the tip that I’m totally Reader’s Digesting with two little words…..
If your mantel is sad and forlorn and needs a spring pick-me-up…..
Add flowers and a platter.
Simple + easy + five minutes = spring mantel
Have an empty bookcase and you’ve run out of ideas…..
Add stacks of milk glass and platters and plates and a random soup tureen.
And finish it off with faux wood paper from Hobby Lobby.
Have a hutch that needs a friend…..
…..(let’s say it all together now)…..white dishes.
Add pitchers and plates and cups and random white interesting pieces that you couldn’t resist because they were only $1.00 at the junk store.
And you can always add a platter.
Just between us…..that platter really gets around.
Run out and start your collection today.
You can find them at yard sales and thrift stores and junk stores and stores that rhyme with loodhill….
….and your grandmother’s attic.
It’s one of the easiest, most inexpensive, best tips that I totally thought I might have invented.
Until I watched Downton Abbey.
Mr. Carson set me straight. 🙂
