I have always been the romantic type. I look forward to flowers for special occasions or for no occasion at all! Flowers are beautiful, so can you blame me? I started working for Wishful Living in Berthoud, Colorado about a year ago and was surprised to see paper flowers in the store for sale. They are rich in texture and color, come in various sizes and arrangements and they actually appear to look very real! The best think about these flowers is they require very minimal dusting. Many customers comment on how they cannot believe the flowers are not "real". These flowers will decorate and delight any home. I now ask my husband to give me paper flowers rather than real flowers. Come check these pretty flowers out for yourself!
Mix it up! The term “eclectic” has come to mean many different things to different people. Eclectic style is not a random mix of furniture, patterns and accessories. Rather, true eclecticism in interior design is largely intentional with a bit of instinct and heart thrown in for good measure. Eclectic style comes together when different time periods and influences work together to create an unconventional whole. Eclectic decor allows you to avoid choosing only one time period or regional theme for your house and instead experiment with a variety of pieces. It might look free and easy, but a room looks “eclectic” and not cluttered when a balance of design styles is used.
Look around your home and see what style of furniture predominates, see what style you gravitate toward most, you might find two equally appealing but contrasting styles. You can use both as part of your eclectic mix. Also, walk through your home and take pictures of all your favorite decorative items: pictures, mirrors, vases, etc. Group the pictures by similar themes, such as modern, Victorian, nature, and the list goes on forever! This will highlight at least one design style to use in your own personal eclectic mix. There is no right or wrong way to decorate in an eclectic style, use what you like and keep a healthy balance.
They say birds fly south for the winter, so rather than missing the sight of beautiful birds during these cold months, I like to decorate my house with unique bird décor found at Wishful Living. I started out decorating my baby girl's room with bird houses made out of vintage barn wood. Then I found beautiful bird pictures to accent her nursery walls and even a metal jewelry holder adorned with birds, which makes a great place to hold cute little head bands.
The desire to have more bird décor in my home blossomed as I found beautiful pillows with embroidered birds for the living room and a metal mantel clock with a bird attached. There are various antique bird cages throughout the store, some of which stand tall and would look great next to my favorite lounging chair. I found a beautiful canvas painting of a bird at Wishful Living, which hangs on the wall near our front door for all to see that enter into our home.
One would think I stopped decorating with birds after both the living room and nursery were finished, however I walked in the store recently to find some more beautiful bird pictures and wooden bird figurines for the kitchen. Who could resist the most adorable clock to hang in the kitchen with vibrant colors and a beautiful bird painted in the center of the clock? Needless to say my house is now filled with so many special bird décor items and I was able to decorate with all of these items as Wishful Living has fantastic prices!
So whether you are in the market for a metal bird cage from Indonesia or a bird house made out of vintage barn wood from the USA, you will find a variety of amazing products to choose from at this unique boutique. There are many other fabulous bird décor items within the store such as wooden key holders, small jewelry or keepsake boxes and even a beautiful jewelry necklace with a bird house pendant. This store is filled with bird treasures!
As you walk through the store each room holds a variety of special gifts! Looking for a special gift for a friend? You can grab a unique card with birds designed on it. If roosters or owls are more up your alley, don't fret as there are plenty of spectacular items with roosters and owls to complete the décor in your home! Wishful Living has made my home charming and fun to show off to my family and friends when they come over! I know you will be pleasantly surprised by the variety of amazing merchandise this store has to offer!
