I've been scoping out blogs and google for images on wall groupings. I like a lot of what I've seen in regards to Charles Faudree but in some respects I also tend to lean towards a cleaner less cluttered look.. I feel like a lot of what I've been looking at and reading has been the most helpful in helping me to determine "what" to put on the walls. So with all of that in mind, I've added a few items here and there.
Let's start in the den...Here's how the wall above the mantle in the Living room looked last summer.
I had actually decided and already purchased what I wanted to add here a few years ago. But for some reason I held back. I think it was because maybe the rest of the room had not evolved enough yet for me to feel comfortable adding what I had in mind for this space.
Here's what I had in mind for this wall, it's plates of course! Not just any old plates either, but beautiful sea blue and green Mediterranean style plates.
I cannot believe I waited so long to add these. I am so glad I finally did though, what a difference. They really add just the right amount of color and definition to the space.
The main difference now is that I added the photograph of the lighthouse to the wall as well instead of having it here in front of the lantern. I loved moving that picture on the wall because now it gave me space to bring in another favorite photo of mine of a sailboat from a Charleston artist.
Lastly, let's take a look at one more area that got a new wall grouping update. This is the foyer last Easter. This photo was taken before it got the new paint job shortly after.
I already had these mirror and they were just sitting upstairs in my craft room unused because I didn't like them where I originally had them. I had even been frustrated every time I saw them sitting there because I couldn't find the exact spot to use them. I had been focusing on using them as single accent pieces somewhere. Not as part of a whole group.
I hope you enjoyed this post and can see how sometimes adding groups of things can totally update the look. I am well pleased with my choices and am enjoying them without feeling like I cluttered things up too much. Thank you all for sharing your wall groupings because it really helped me to be able to focus on my choices as well.
Have a great day everyone!
