I have this thing.
A thing about changing things up.
About moving things around.
About continually tweaking.
Two days ago, I had another tweaking moment where the kitchen hutch was the victim. It resides against a wall next to the kitchen cabinets and provides more storage. Usually, the shelves are artfully stocked with white dishes. (It IS in the kitchen, after all.) But on a decorating whim, I decided to keep only the dishes behind the glass and evict those items currently residing on the open shelving.
Next, I gathered up my camera collection from the fireplace mantel (including my two newest acquisitions) and carefully arranged them on the top shelf. I then placed the statue bust among the cameras for a little interest. (And possible social interaction…)
My ultra heavy vintage typewriter found a new perch on the bottom shelf to ground the vignette.
The middle shelf held auditions, but the accessories that ended up getting the part were the mirrored “love” sign and the white ceramic owl planter sporting a leafy green coif.
Here are a few close-ups of each new shelf arrangement:
1) Camera cluster
2) Long-haired owl
3) Sturdy writing machine
Now cameras (and typewriters) in your kitchen my be a bit unexpected.
A bit unusual.
A bit odd.
But it might also be just a little bit awesome. (For those of us who also have a thing for long-haired, noctural birds of prey, that is.)
So what about you? Can any non-traditional decor be found in your kitchen? And what is your opinion on hirsute fowl?
