    Decorating Advice Please

    Advertisements
    I have this bookcase with fake plants in it. I want to do something different there but what?

    I dont mind if there is other type of fake plants but still want something different.

    Any suggestions?


    Here is what it looks like before we replaced the pendant lights




    Here it is with the new lights. Now we need new plants or something

    framed pictures was the first thing that came to mind for me. but i also like the real plants/vase with flowers ideas.

    maybe both?

    hmmm on that blank wall I'd get a great mirror and have a little table to throw your keyes on or something. Kind of like a mini mudroom spot......you could do ANYTHING with that bookshelf. You could take baskets that match the shelving and use them for shoes or extras that tend to accumulate by the door.

    I'd ditch the fake plants, but be hesitant to put anything there that could be knocked over easily. I have a few fake plants and HATE them. they are such dust magnets. Maybe a good candle holder or something there?

    Is that shelving built in?

    What about changing out the flowers/plants with something seasonal? That way you could change it every season.. Mums in the fall, poinsettias at christmas, daffodils in the spring, and daisies in the summer? You could fill it in with greenery.

    maybe put like basket on top for mail and keys. i'd ditch the plants too. Or if you want fake plants go with something brighter for pop right now they kinda blend in and don't make a big statement.

    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    I would remove those plants and replace with other type of flowers but in a smaller vase, nothing tall and not as wide like the one you have now and probably some small frames with pics.

    The new lamps look beautiful!
