Nature Inspirations - Change It Up
Take a look at the two photos above ... do you see the changes? (click on the "read more" to see the photos a bit bigger) If there’s anything that happens in nature that is a sure thing it is this … change! Nothing ever stays the same. Even though things can be somewhat predictable such as the leaves turning all different shades of green, red, yellow, orange, brown, and even purple, it never looks quite the same as the year before, does it? Besides witnessing the seasonal changes, we often purposefully change things around in our yards. We take out certain plants, add others, prune, shape, weed, and clean. The inside of our homes deserve the same thought and care. It’s best to treat our eyes and senses to an ever changing environment, no matter how small the change/s. Always look for ways to add something fresh and new and remove something stale and tired. Things can be rotated in and out or simply moved to a new location. I tell my clients that when I come back into their homes a few years down the road I don’t want to see the accessories all in the same place and it's nice to see the furniture moved around now and then too. Our eyes love to be treated to color, texture, and form. Move things around and shake things up. Happy November!
