Do you ever look around your house and notice you have unintentionally incorporated an element into your decorating over and over? This happened to me the other day in my living room. All of a sudden I noticed I had about 27 different kinds of decorative balls arranged in various places. Okay, maybe not 27, but quite a few. A little decorative repetition may be a good thing, but perhaps I’ve gone a little overboard. Let’s take a look.
A basket of beaded/bean-encrusted balls under the coffee table:
Mosaic gold glass balls in the candlescape on top of the coffee table:
I even stuck one in the entertainment center:
What’s that hidden back there? Another embellished ball, perhaps the first of my collection.
And finally, gaze into my crystal ball nestled in the built-in bookcase:
It’s hard to believe I don’t have any of the twine or moss covered balls that are so popular now! Honestly, it really doesn’t look that bad unless you start counting all the balls in this one room, but I do think perhaps I should eliminate the ones in the candlescape and save them just for holiday decorating, what do you think? Care to share any of your repetitive decorating elements?
