I’m sure you have noticed the influx of garden stools in home decor magazines and furniture stores. Garden stools originated during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and were originally used in the garden. Today, garden stools are gaining popularity in interior design. Their small scale design and versatility allow them to adapt to almost an room in the house from the living room to the bathroom. They are easily moved from place to place and provide an extra seat or spot to set a drink or book. The best thing about garden stools is that they are easily available, relatively inexpensive and come in a variety of shapes and colors. Enjoy some pictures of this hard working little stool!
Have you been trying to think of ways to decorate a bare wall in your home, consider hanging a collage of your favorite photos or artwork. A picture collage allows you to add interest to a large bare wall without investing in oversized and expensive artwork. Pictures collages are also a personal and beautiful way to showcase your family treasures.
To keep a collage from looking visually cluttered, try using black and white photography.
To achieve a more formal look, use matching frames hung symmetrically.
These simple sketches appear more important when hung together as a group.
If you are adventurous and want to give the collage more dimension, try mixing in 3 dimensional objects to add visual interest.
