here is a new group on Flickr called Interior Styling formed by Holly of decor8. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at styling this is the place for you. I tend to 'style' little vignettes around my home but never really paid attention to any rules. I simply pottered around until it looked good!
I am hoping to become more aware of what works and little tricks of the trade through the Interior Styling group. The gallery is a hive of inspiration for anyone interested in decorating or design so feel free to take a look here. You don't have to contribute photos to be a member so if you are a bit shy don't worry, just enjoy the inspiration.
Every month there will be a new styling challenge posted and this month is a simple one: Put 3, 5 or 7 of your favourite things on a tabletop arranging them triangle style with the taller items in the middle, you get the picture. I have noticed a few of my favourite bloggers have also posted their lovely images to the group. The image above is one of my submissions with 7 items not including the wallpaper remnant I used for the background. I played it a bit safe using only vases in my image. I did try to use a picture frame with other items such as vases but the reflection on the glass was spoiling the image.
I found styling fun, hopefully I can find some more time to have a play around with it this month.
Ps. I just wanted to try out this drop cap at the beginning of the post - cute!
