I'm a firm believer in beautifying every space in your life to the best of your ability and affordability ~ and that includes your TV viewing area. I've already shown you what I did with my living room TV area where my TV resides in an armoire neatly tucked away with a collection of
movies and books.
But in my bedroom (where I love watching TV) it is more exposed. So I set out to beautify the space around it and here is how it looks for spring.
I found the vase at Goodwill for $.99 and hustled it home to put in my pink and beige bedroom.
Then I arranged it with my pink mercury glass candle, a small glass dish of pink vintage buttons, and doily I found at a flea market this spring.
Don't they make good companions and look at all those textures. The older I get, the more I love pink in all forms.
Lastly, I splurged on some new faux pink and white ranunculus and a delicate green filler.
I've never really seen real ranunculus, but I love these and they don't wilt and die ~ all the better I think.
So ~ although the trend is to have a big-screen TV that is the center of attention, I prefer to blend mine in so it's not the first thing you notice when you walk in a room. Plus ~ now every time I watch TV in my bedroom, I see my lovely rannuculas and vintage buttons, and that makes me realize that it's the simple things that makes life sweet.
