I think that it is amazing what three frames can do!
All three frames, (shaker style, purchased from Wal-Mart for $15.00 each) filled with photographs that I took myself, have been hung. Two are in the small bathroom downstairs and the third is in the living room, over the TV set.
You may recall that the needs were for more life in the downstairs bathroom and more water element in the living room.
The bathroom downstairs is a very small 2-piece, and what was required was something green on the wall behind the toilet, and something on the counter top to add more height. I opted to hang photographs in the bathroom (as opposed to a silk plant) since photos are easier to maintain. The counter top now sports a gorgeous vase (that was given to me by my Jersey Girls when I moved back to Canada) as well as a couple of green glass bud-vases that I had sitting on top of the entertainment centre.
While very difficult to show the actual effect, (thank God for digital cameras and Photo shop,) here are a couple of photos of how it looks now:
The final frame now holds a picture that I took while I was in St. Malo, France in November of 2010. The overall effect isn’t dramatic, it’s calming.
A funny side note here also prompts a suggestion – before taking photos inside your home, ensure that any and all cobwebs have actually been spotted and forcibly removed. When I took the initial shot of the living room, I was horrified to see cobwebs in corner at the ceiling juncture. And I don’t mean just a couple of them!
I have just finished walking around my entire home, broom in hand, removing cobwebs from everywhere else they may have been.
I am looking forward to seeing how the new energy flow in my home impacts my world – so I’ll be back with Feng Shui related posts in a few weeks…
With love across the waters!
