Goal for the Day: Make a Suitable Marriage

Wednesday, May 11, 2011


No. I’m not talking about finding a human mate. I’m referring to the combination of decorative items in your home. If you’re looking for a way to display your favorite possessions that has visual impact, you should consider combining items in artful ways.

For example, this antique Mercury Glass vase is quite handsome on its own, but when combined with a crystal cake stand, it is given greater visual importance and weight. The vase—being a tasty confection—looks great atop the cake stand, and the unusual marriage of items is eye catching.

Today, as you unwind after your day, look through your collections and find items which you normally wouldn’t think of marrying and see how they fit together. It’s a fun way to relax and change your décor at the same time. ads
