Less Fluff, More Rust


Howdy there, daaaaaaarlings!  I have been trying to slowly make some changes to our home... If I had to put a name on it, it would be a big eclectic, bohemian blend of transitional, industrial, and vintage finds. With that being said, I started to feel like our large urn on our pallet bar was looking a little fluffy and femme. As you all know, I am obsessed with contrast. Mixing old with new, pretty with rusty etc, etc  and this piece was just waaay too pretty. It had to be changed immediately. Instead of getting rid of our super frilly arrangement,  I decided to create two arrangements. One of them is industrial and a nice contrast to the white flowers and the other (which I still have to create), will be simple and made of only moss like in the pictures below. I am unsure if I am going to paint the urn black or not.



The new industrial arrangement on our pallet bar is a bit funkier and goes nicely with our new DIY zebra hide rug and giant, vintage map. I enjoy the combination of textures and materials. 
By simply swapping the urn with an old rusty olive bucket, I was able to completely change the look of the arrangement.
I am happy with the changes I am making and can't wait to work on the moss arrangment!

Sometimes all it takes is looking at something a little differently and a minute to swap things in and out. How often do you change your style around??? I live, sleep, breathe, eat (mostly eat) design, so I like to change the look of our home frequently. 

Off to work on some other fun changes! Can't wait to share them with you!

  1. I love to change, but probably not as frequently as you do. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the holidays!!! Your olive bucket is fantastic! Those are so expensive here in the states...well, if you're decorating on the cheap that is.
    As for my two cents worth on the urn, I think you should leave it white. There doesn't seem to be much of a contrast between the moss and the black, but then I guess it just depends on the way you plan to fit it into your 'scheme'. I know you will make it look fantastico any way it ends up!!!!

    Love to you and your hubby,
