My Summer Decorating Continues With Some Sparkle!

My summer decorating has continued and I am pretty happy with it all so far. 

There is one exception though and that is my dining room, but to be honest what I have done will do until we can DO what I really would like to do in there. More on that on another day!

Today let's talk about what I have done. Last report to you all was all about my pillows, which I am in love with.....

I couldn't be happier with the cool, crisp look of our room for the hot days of summer.

There is an area below our TV where I have a  3ft. long nickel plate tray sitting and it has 3 clear glass bubble balls sitting on it. I got this years ago at Restoration Hardware, so I am not sure they still carry it.

I decided that this tray needed some more glass balls/fish floats.

Luckily a nice reader told me that Pottery Barn had just what I was looking for so that very same day I ordered 2 sets of 3 balls. I think I might need one more set though.

They actually came with two blue and one clear.

The table is 5 ft. long and the tray is 39 in. long just to give you a frame of reference. You know one of my decorating mantras is BIG is better and this tray definitely falls into that category!

 I think a few more balls might be in my future. I just sit and stare at these sparkly spheres. I love them especially when the afternoon sun comes in the windows.

I am really happy with the outcome!!

Every room needs a touch of sparkle! 
Remember vary your textures to keep the room interesting.

Next I am looking for a stack of baskets for a bit more texture in my room. I will place them next to the black and white spool chair.

A decorators work is never done, and this one is still going to continue to.....
