I’m going to apologize ahead of time, as I think this might be a rambley post and maybe a little all over the place. But I promise to make it a quick one, I just wanted to share a few exciting finds with you all so you can all RUN to Target and get in on all the sale action. Seriously, Target has some crazy sales going on, so naturally I went ham!
The second part of the post is to share how glad I am that I decided to start Life in Mauve. Its provided a creative outlet that I felt was missing, ever since leaving my career in Visual Merchandising and deciding to become a full time stay at home mom. Once I became a little more comfortable and maybe even got the hang of this whole mom thing, (ha!) I found myself missing running around all day styling product. While at home I mostly style with vintage, one of a kind pieces. I also want to start doing posts like this, were I pull products together just to show inspiration. Of course along the way, I’ll start sharing my styling process.
The first thing I gravitated towards were these woven wall hangings, I fell in love with the texture and scale of the this piece. I had originally thought I would pair it along side of a neutral fringe wall hanging, but once they were side by side it was too much texture and not enough contrast. So I decided to use a kitchen towel, and hang it at an angle to make it look more interesting. The dark forest green color of the towel, layered behind the light fringe makes everything pop, and brings the green from the plants upward grounding the entire look.
Once my art pieces were hung, I decided to make green my color statement by using a mostly green product, layering in different textures and shapes from the plants kept things visually interesting. I used brown as an accent color to bring a little warmth to the overall look. Like this glass lantern, the leather strap not only adds a different texture but the glass itself helps lighten the area. The varying heights of the plants draw the eye back up to the wall art as well as start a cascade allowing each item to shine on it’s own.
On the opposite side I brought in this copper plant stand, which added height and the copper also made this look feel a bit more modern. To balance out both sides I mirrored the opposite side with another cacti, creating visual repetition helps make the look stronger and is pleasing to the eye.
All of the products used are still available at Target, and are all one sale. In the comments below, let me know if this is a series you would like me to continue.
