When putting together any room you want to consider items that you can group together to create a "unit" or a grouping, rather than just putting a few pictures up on the wall.

This bedroom was newly moved into and had nothing
hanging on the walls.

Notice the 3 groupings in this photo:

1. The nightstand has a lamp, a vase of flowers and a crystal clock, as well as a piece of art right above the lamp. This makes it's own group.

2. Above the bed we placed a mirror with a collection of small oval frames. This grouping is just the right scale to fit above the bed, and helps to make the bed a nice focal point. The gold color of all of the pieces really tie it together.

3. On the right of the bed is a small roll top desk, with a lamp, a couple of books and an oval frame. The large rose photo in the center balances out the weight of the desk.

These groupings helped to create balance around the room and are so much more interesting than just hanging up a few pictures.

Take a look around your room and see what you can group together!

    You are so welcome for the tutorials --- this is what I love to do, teach you all little things and hope that you feel empowered to go and try something at home!

    The bed came from a small town estate sale! Love those, you never know what you will find!

    We moved into our bedroom 18 months ago, and there's still nothing on the walls.
