About a year ago, my hubs surprised me with a small cow hide area rug which started the "earthy" elements in the family room. My dad gave me real deer antlers and skull that I am obsessed with... SO earthy!
Although I have an 8' by 10' area rug from Safavieh Rugs, using the small cow hide rug under this accent chair added so much character to the space. The throw pillow, HomeGoods, has burlap trim. I took the giant basket out of retirement and use it to hold throw blankets. Other earthy elements: wooden top side table and faux greenery.
I switch up this shelf constantly and with a few new items, ($11 at TJMaxx) and some shopping around the house, I was able to give this shelf a nice, earthy feel. (Say earthy ONE more time) I had that frame already and it's just right for the look I'm working to achieve. I found the chicken wire wrapped jars and mini cacti at TJMaxx this morning and LOVE how cute they look together. (Remember, group in odd numbers!) Those are my treasured antlers from my Dad... I think they are so cool and something NO ONE else has because they are from the woods! ;) Stacked some books and a candle, used a faux plant from another room in the house and then took a distressed metal ball out of retirement. I am VERY happy with how this little "shelfie" came out!
