Still Nesting


I think we have finished the main wall that you look at when sitting in our living room. We put up the Russia print that my mom gave me when I was in high school, and added a gerber daisy arrangement on top of each bookshelf for a little splash of color.
I'm saving my receipts on the flower arrangements because I can't decide if they are just right or too much. Thoughts?
Now lock in your votes: just right or too much?
Have a great weekend!!!

Okay, but only because you asked. I think they are too much. (Please don't blast me, fellow commenters, she asked for thoughts and votes.) I am by no means an expert or anything and understand perfectly if my opinion is the minority and completely ignored. However, (having at last said all that) I think it would look more streamlined and neater without anything that large and eye catching on the top,.

I *think* I would have a tendency to agree with Ginger on this one...

The thing is that it looks GREAT with everything so neetly arranged, etc...but I'm thinking that if anything at all is out of place....or if you happen to want to add anything at all....it would become a little too much....AND it does take away from the lovely painting which, to me, is a great focal point.

As for color...think of the (not so necessary) reasons why Husby could bring home FRESH flowers (or you could just buy them when you do groceries like I do...because I'm worth it!)

PS - I LOVE that furniture...such a sucker for darker wood....fabulous!

They're cute, but I'm with the others...too much.

Fun to be able to help boss you around regarding decorating your house! Happy Friday!

They are lovely, but a bit maybe too much. Can you put them in another room in the house? The Russian print is awesome!

I do believe I see a theme here. :) Thanks for your input. Husby showed the blog to a few others at work, and most everyone seems to agree that they're a bit too much. Good thing I saved the receipt! Thanks for bossing me around, guys!

Happy weekend,
Starshine

I agree with the others, but think you might be headed in the right direction. Try for something a little less balanced. Maybe a plant on one side that's compact and green, and something that hangs a bit more on the other side. There's a lot of yellow happening already...maybe a couple of small plants clustered on one side, and something a more dramatic shape and colour potential (like a Christmas cactus) on the other.

Big hugs and happy weekend wishes for you too,

Yup... it's too much :D

They're beautiful, but I agree with the other folks - a bit too much.

It's unanimous then! :) You have great taste like your mom though.

hmmmm.... what a great way to get that decision made!

I was clearly too late on this one, but I am loving how kind and honest the responses were.
