eleven thousand words

Dont start your weekend without taking at look at these eleven pictures from photographer Ellen Silverman’s portfolio. I encourage you to observe the details in each image. Ellen’s skill as professional photographer is obvious. Her crisp, well composed and brilliantly shot pictures have more to tell.

Each image is a source for simple decorating ideas. By observing how the objects are styled, grouped, and arranged, you can learn helpful tips to freshen up your rooms. Start by identifying a focal point in the room. Then using objects that you already own, play around with arranging them differently. Group them by color, material, texture and form {glass jars, vases, bottles, ceramics, plants, books, picture frames, etc}. Mix it up. Decorate. Have fun doing it.

I love the monochromatic arrangement on the mantle. One of my projects this weekend include painting used wine bottles and tin cans white. I’ll let you know how they turn out.

A neat idea for a worktable. The round top must make it easy to roll around the work space.
