Looking in the bright side

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you’ve probably figured out that I go for soft, natural and muted colors with pops of red. I am super comfortable with this style of decorating, but I couldn’t help stepping out of my comfort zone and going for something a bit more bright and colorful for a little spring display.

I started with a stack of books with bright red, blue, and yellow bindings. Then, I topped the stack with an impromptu cloche assembled from a milk glass candle stick, a pretty salad plate, and a cheese dome.

I filled the cloche with two chalk eggs and a shredded paper nest. To finish things off, two bird votive holders provide a little whimsy from their book perch.

Simple. Easy. Done! Sometimes it’s fun to try a little something new!

Pretty! I'm loving bird stuff (antique cages, nests, figurines) lately. SO ready for spring to officially be here.
