I admit, I have a weakness for cute little three-dimensional things that are intended for the wall. Remember these Umbra Wallflowers that I suggested for Bailey’s room?
Well, the other day when I was in Bed, Bath & Beyond, I saw that they carry a limited selection of these Wallflowers (in two colors, I think), and then they had these cute little Wallflutters!
I’ve never been really big on dragonflies, but these are just too darn cute, and I love the brushed nickel finish (although they’re really plastic). And plus, the name is just so perfect. Wallflutters. I love it! So I brought them home, hoping to use them on the wall above my bed.
The cost was $19.99 for a set of 20 (five each of four different sizes), but I had a nifty little coupon, so I only paid $15.99.
Here’s my predicament: I don’t know how to arrange them. I love the freeform look, shown in the picture above. That’s what I had intended to do, but honestly, freeform is just so hard for me to do. I always love it when other people do it. For example, Cassandra’s plate wall is simply wonderful!!
But why is it that I can never embrace the freeform for my own home?! I’m all about symmetry and structure. I try to break free, but it grabs hold of me and pulls me back.
So here’s the freeform look. I don’t know that this is how I would actually arrange them for the long term, but it’ll give you an idea…
Now here’s an IDEA of what a more structured arrangement would look like. If I went for the structured, I would NOT place them directly on the wall. I would probably opt for a framed arrangement…perhaps an arrangement of three frames, and each frame would have two or three Wallflutters in it.
So tell me your thoughts. Am I being ridiculous? I know these were intended for a more freeform look. Why is it so hard for me?! Why do I need everything so structured and symmetrical?! Aarrgghhhh!!!!
I just need someone to tell me what to do.
