Soothing Dining Table Vignette
Well with all this techno-stress in my life as of late, I decided I needed a little reprieve — something soothing to look at while I worked in the kitchen (which doubles as my drafting studio, art center and psycho best friend counseling center). So I created this simple vignette shopping my local grocery store for flowers and my garage for everything else…..
Simple, easy and elegant – exactly what I needed to gaze upon during this stretch of chaos….. I used curly willow and stargazer lilies I picked up at the grocery store for a total of $10. I love the juxtaposition of the lilies against the erratic willow branches. I placed them in a simple vase from West Elm which I loved for its color, height and clean lines.
I finished the vignette with two pieces of driftwood and a painted glass bowl I picked up from Marshalls a few months ago. The wood provides a nice organic form to the lower section of the vignette, while the bowl visually expands the lower portion of the composition providing sheen and width to an otherwise vertical display.
