Too Little Color?

Seriously?  That's what I was thinking too!  Recently I was called out for having too little color in one of my displays.  Unfortunately I guess "they" failed to realize that was the look I was going for.  Let me just say in my defense most of the objects I was using were also of the neutral family so I went with it.  Hey, I know many of you would have done the same.  I guess the neutral look just has not reached many main steam retail stores as of yet.  And, while I am not a big fan of it in my house there are areas where I love it!  In fact I loved one of the items I was creating my neutral display with at work so much that I decided it was just going to have to come home with me to be fully appreciated.

Welcome home my new very LARGE lantern!  I have found just the perfect spot for you!

I have even decided to keep a neutral vignette going inside of you (for a bit) in honor of your well deserved escape from retail land.  Don't you think this lantern just screams neutral decor?  

Especially with it's grey tin roof...

...And pale greyish whitewashed wood.  Well, I certainly do!  But you ladies know I am not one to stay very neutral for long so enjoy it while it lasts okay?

I've set a little vignette here that speaks volumes about where my heart is right now.  I can hardly wait!  It won't be long now!

I am sure this little corner of the den is going to see lots of change with my newest addition.  It's going to be so fun changing this lantern out.  The Mr. said that is no lantern dear it is a BIG glass box.  LOL!  Oh well, if you haven't seen these this size then hop on over to your nearest Stein Mart.  We have lanterns in all shapes and sizes right now at some really great prices too.

I am joining Marty today over for her vignette linky party for

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day!


  1. I love your big lantern! I love that it's neutral and so large you can put all kinds of beautiful accessories in it. It could even be a little greenhouse. Love it!

  2. Love your large lantern, especially with the grey roof. It looks perfect in the little corner!

  3. Hi darling, love your large lantern, I carry the same size in the shop, yes they are large and so full of character. What a perfect corner to show off it's beauty.
    hugs ~lynne~

  4. I love your lantern! What a great decorating basic...I know you will enjoy changing it out. Now I love the neutral with the shells...oh dreaming of a beach myself! Enjoy. Hugs, Linda

  5. Ahhhh, lanterns make me happy! That one is gorgeous and I love the whole vignette with the shells! So pretty and shame on someone for calling you out on anything. If you asked for an opinion, that is one thing, but if you didn't... say something nice or don't say anything at all!!!

  6. That lantern is GORGEOUS!!! I just love it and I really like the candle sticks inside of it. It looks really pretty where you have it!!

  7. Love that gorgeous lantern. It is stunning and such a great addition to the corner. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  8. I adore your lantern. In fact I have been eyeing the BIG ones at Home Goods for our new house. It looks beautiful./ And, you can change it out constantly:) XO, Pinky

  9. Stein Mart here I come. I would love one that size, and I can think of a hundred different ways to showcase it. I love the neutral look, which I personally find so relaxing. The beach vignette is perfect.

    I keep saying that I'm going to do one, but I keep getting sidetracked.

  10. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! the lantern! Nice job with it! I am your newest "linky" follower!

  11. That is some gorgeous lantern, Mary! I like the neutral colors for summer, but my home will be full of color by the end of August -- that's when I start decorating for Fall. I know, early, but I live in the desert & will be SO ready for cooler weather by then, even if it will still be a couple of month away....lol!

  12. Mary- What a beautiful lantern! You did a great job with it- xo Diana

  13. how lovely! looks perfect in that spot!!
