Because I have to use the room I’m renovating, it’s necessary to move furniture back into place after I complete part of a project. After repositioning the dresser and night stand, I decided to utilize the bedroom as the staging area for this week’s floral projects since the vases are larger than those I usually utilize.
The high and mighty, stylized, black pitcher vase by Royal Haeger contains a selection of dried floral elements. The project is tall so it can be used as a corner floor accent. Notice that the wall is patchy appearing. That’s spackle and dried putty (mud) used in the room project. I’m still waiting for primer and paint.
The bulky, stylized Chinese vase is dressed up with large, tropical elements. My dresser top will temporarily feature this set-up until it’s time to do more wall repairs.
The night stand features a big Haeger egg-shape vase. A jumbo orchid arrangement contrasts with the bright red Venetian blinds lampshade. The mid-century lamp, vintage Ingersol alarm clock and old Koha watch provide a splash of style within the stark bedroom walls.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes branding manager and creative director, Ty McBride. “Renovating old homes is not about making them look new…it is about making new unnecessary.”
That red lampshade is cool. I thought they were like a little stairway, at first.
Thanks. That’s my favorite lampshade.
So did I. The red lampshade seems to be providing a little optical illusion.
I like the one which is “bulky, stylized Chinese vase … dressed up with large, tropical elements.” That’s how I have to refer to it in the absence of a name.
The optical play is part of its appeal to me. Thanks for visiting.
Hi Blue Jay,
Since you are interested in optical play, an important aspect of vision, I would like to recommend to you my special post published at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2017/09/28/optical-illusions/
This said post covers the topics of optical illusions quite comprehensively. Given its length and scope, it will take some time to load fully. Please kindly leave me your feedback there.
May you have a lovely Sunday!
There is enough content on the page that it freezes the browser on my old laptop. I’ll try to access it on my phone..
It is better to use a desktop, laptop or iPad with a large screen, because the screen on your phone might be too small.
I’m sorry that my computer is obsolete.
How old is your computer?
Definitely too old. On a new and decent computer, the post should fully load in about 10 seconds or less.
I’ll budget in a new computer when I taper back on house renovation expenses. My budget is tight due to the pandemic and other complications. I will then be able to expand my list of priorities. Thanks.
Is your house as old as your computer?
100 years old this year
Nearly as old as those classic Ragtime pieces discussed in https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/soundeagle-in-art-music-and-ragtime/
Perhaps you can compose a piece called “Old House Rag”.
Another one could be “Renovation Rag”.
Should you want your online surfing to be snappy and smooth, get 16 Giga bytes of RAM if you can afford it, plus a fast central processor unit (CPU), and a speedy broadband connection of at least 20 Mega bits/sec or more, and a large, energy-efficient LED monitor.
Choose a desktop computer (which is cheaper and yet more extensible and durable) rather than a laptop computer or a tablet, unless portability is essential.
