My china cabinet always ends up being a place where I put a lot of random things. The main reason for this is cat troublemakers that like to try to eat/break things. So when I need to put something away rather quickly, the china cabinet is typically my dumping ground. As a result it is always looking a fuss. Poor china cabinet. So a few times a year, I try to clean out some junk and make it look lovely again. Styling shelves and surfaces is, in my opinion, one of the hardest parts about decorating a house. It is always a struggle for me to figure out where to place each item to make it look fancy like the homes in the magazines. So after a good bit of moving around, I came up with an arrangement I am pretty happy with for now.
I finally printed out some of my England and Ireland photos and chose this one of the London eye to go on top. I like how the slight bit of blue in it feels cohesive with the rest of the cabinet.
Much better, right? We will see how long it lasts.
