Soothing, Calming Vignette, But Never Boring!

Do you ever need to have some nice calming neutrals in your home?
No jarring colors to compete with your senses,
 just nice, soothing colors.....

not boring though!

There is absolutely no reason to do boring!

That is where layering various textures and heights comes in.

The first layer is a creamy bedspread. A bedspread for a tablecloth?
 Your little old ears did not deceive you. I said a bedspread.

 Next comes a brown and cream toile, folded as a runner.

 The ends are not sewn.
  [I have a problem with committing a favorite piece of fabric to just one use....
probably need counseling!
 Do any of you ever have the same issues? Maybe we could start a support group!]

Next comes a tray with a cream and white tiny gingham checked fabric.
I tied a length of ecru lace around three books, the older the better.
Try to use odd numbers in your groupings. 

I found this darling teapot. 

Most of my vignettes end up with some shells and clocks and creamware....

because I like them. You can use what you like...

There you go!
Soothing! Calming!
Never boring!
Life gets stressful. People can really be cruel.
It can be difficult to avoid the tension that marks our days. Try to carve out some space, physically, mentally, emotionally where it is safe....for you and your family. Sometimes, 24/7 connection with Facebook, Twitter, the phone and  other good and wonderful communication devices makes us vulnerable.
It is up to us to make our home a sanctuary for our family and ourselves!

Have a blessed week,
