From the moment they enter this corridor, guests will find themselves speaking in hushed whispers. Two statues bearing the likeness of ancient Romans stand guard at the door, granting access only to those they deem worthy of entering the pool.
An ornate mirror anchors the far wall, with circles that complement the dot work of the bear painting. A Buddha statue and side table carved in the shape of an elephant give this space a well-traveled look, just like the living room.
If you have a fireplace in your kitchen, add quirky and collected elements for instant farmhouse style. This mantel, featured in Susan Sully’s book, “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques,” mixes inexpensive brass candlesticks, baskets and classic blue-and-white platters along with affordable resin bear statues and a deer bust for a rustic farmhouse feel. “When you group it in an interesting way, they work together,” Sully says.
A green jack bookend, green book statue with tiny tennis shoes and rain-ready teddy bear add adorable decor to the top of this nursery dresser. The decor adds pops of color against the neutral wall and dark wood furniture. A group of fish eye mirrors add a fun and unexpected view of the room.
