My post title sounds like a new blog name doesn't it? Well it isn't. I just realized how I'm using two different nature elements in my home that contrast yet coordinate well together too.
I recently added some faux lilacs to my fireplace mantel.
I love how the color purple plays off the neutral colors of grey, white and black in the room.
They also play off the feminine scrolls in the mirror frame.
On the contrast, I have an old aged concrete urn on my coffee table that I decided to fill with miscellaneous antler sheds.
In an odd sort of way, they almost look beachy. They remind me of driftwood with the curves and soft worn beige color.
They, in turn, play off the worn wooden pedestal that the urn sits on.
So, mixed with the whites and creams on the sofas, the lilacs and antlers bring a summery feel to the room.
My son's last day of middle school is this Friday! I can't believe he will be in high school next year. So, things should start slowing down around here with the new summer schedule. I can honestly tell you that I won't miss using the alarm clock and making him lunches for school every morning.
Hope to see you Wednesday night for the Share Your Style party!
