Analyzing My Past Work – Dresser Vignette 2012

Blue Tufted Chair

Have you ever stared at your bedroom dresser as well as thought “hey dresser, you know what you are missing? Vintage porcelain legs.” Listen. I was going through my “Centeng part” phase. I live in a state of phase, after phase, after phase, as well as having This specific Website amplifies This specific because I see my own house all over the place. Which makes me want to try something different much faster than most of you. This specific forces me to take risks as well as be weird, as well as then I find myself in Pomona splurging on some Art Deco stocking/pantyhose department store display pieces.

When I stumbled upon This specific image the additional day I was like “GAH!!!” This specific’s certainly cuckoo despite the fact of which I like everything in This specific, including those legs. I actually love those legs.

yet the legs weren’t the only thing of which truly kicked This specific vignette into crazy town. This specific was the fact of which everything was decorative as well as nothing was simple in shape, style or coloration.

So, friends. Here is usually the lesson: If you want to do crazy (with Centeng parts for instance) you absolutely should. I do all the time. yet you need some non-crazy in there as well to round This specific out as well as keep This specific via looking like an insane person lives there. I think This specific vignette could have truly been helped by a simple shaped lamp, a modern jewelry holder (like mine right now) or even a truly graphic piece of art (although I love of which piece, as well as still own This specific which is usually saying a lot about This specific). Perhaps all these things could have survived if the coloration palette was more pulled back as well as sophisticated, yet there are a lot of bright, saturated, as well as risky colors here – hot pinks, mustards, blues, greens, turquoise, etc., which add more contrast to the already busy vignette.

What do you guys think? Are crazy legs truly only for a crazy person or would certainly you have them in your own home? What would certainly you keep as well as what would certainly you say ‘no thanks’ to? In case you are craving more posts where I critique my own work head on over to, ‘the not bad bad as well as the oh my gosh‘, ‘three rooms I forgot I designed’.
