White Doesn't Whisper

The votes are in...and unfortunately we came up a tad short this week.  But we've had a great time over at SYTYCD in the contest and made it much farther than we ever dreamed, considering the great talent of our competitors.  This honor of an opportunity has been full of great inspiration and motivation!  Here is our entry that would have been for week four.  Following is a collection of pictures to make you feel you are in a white wonderland.  Enjoy!

At JunkFest, white doesn't shouts "I'M BEAUTIFUL, LOOK AT ME!" No matter what style, what circumstance, *white* has a way of finding its place. Whether tucked in discreetly or bold and upfront, any amount of white brings with it everything from sweet serenity to a high fashion statement. 

Displaying white, on white, on white can be as simple as 1. 2. 3.

1. Foundation. If you're fortunate enough to possess a large wonderful white piece of furniture or mantel, use it as the core substance of your display. Here a fabulous Fairbanks scale anchors the display area.

2. Layer. Multiple shapes, sizes and shades of white, when put together, make quite a statement. Here the circular echo of the PB style clock, the vintage clockfaces stacked in a bowl, and the scroll of the architectural piece play on each other drawing your eye from top to bottom, then back up again.

3. Element of Surprise. Now, mix it up! Vary the heights from tall to short, and the style from functional to funky. Throw in some playful splashes of color. The greenery, the frames, and the book bring depth to the overall mood of the display. The sweet chippy garden statue finds her dream home here, surrounded by elements that make her feel loved.

There are no rules. Displaying white is at your discretion. Have fun, play, enjoy.

White. It Makes us Drool.


Now, grab your coffee.  Sit back and enjoy the following white wonderland...
