Store Display Swoon!

Whenever I spot a store display that interests me, I immediately grab my camera and snap away. Do you do this? It's a great habit to develop, especially for recording ideas that you can tuck away for later. Take this display from Sinn Leffers, a great example of the power of one simple textile mounted and used as art. It's a very simple print of trees in brown and white, yet the statement is bold and chic. I love the scale of it, and how the deep cocoa creates such warmth, while the white is so cool and sharp. Gorgeous in the home, especially in a dining room or living space. Also great for creating the look of Autumn indoors without getting overly kitschy with wreaths and garlands, the typical Autumnal decor that you find in the common craft store. With just a simple textile like this one and a few white pumpkins on the dining room table, you can create a little warmth and that lovely Autumnal feel we have such a weakness for. You can even dedicate one space in your home to seasonal art. Rotate every three months with a new textile canvas that brings the season from the outdoors in. Fun!
