|Hallway in My Florida Home|
The Florida house has a few odd odd features, as do many homes. It has three of these arched niches which are somewhat dated. Rather than spend money on filling them in, I decided to keep them and work with them. I was also determined to use my existing art as I love it all - these above were done by Jennifer at The Pink Pagoda and I had them in my office in Alexandria previously. I got them for one of the One Room Challenges I participated in. This is the hallway of the master suite in Florida. I think they work beautifully.
|Another Arched Niche|
This niche I filled with framed antique Chinese silk costume fragments - I like the contrast with the massive framed photograph of a Vatican staircase in the landing. And a favorite ginger jar is on a ledge in the staircase.
I love the way these work.
This last one holds a favorite piece of mine I purchased in Old Town Alexandria long ago at a wonderful store called The Pineapple, now long gone. It fits the space like it was meant to be there.
