Interior styling

Have you seen Holly from decor8's Interior Styling Flickr group? If you haven't, please spare a moment to check it out. I promise it is worth your time. The images that members have posted are very inspiring. I have added quite a few to my favourites.

Holly set a challenge for January to create an arrangement made of 3, 5 or 7 items in a triangle shape with the tallest items at the back and the smallest items at the front. I tried rearranging (again!) the items on the mirrored table because I felt the Love print was dwarfing the other items so I submitted this:

I found some sea holly at the markets to pop into my new vase and the flower lights are a recent purchase from Bed, Bath N' Table (love this store). You have seen the other items a billion times. I have since moved the flower lights into the bedroom because Robert wanted to pull them down so the arrangement looks like this now. He can't quite reach the bowl and isn't interested in it:

You can see some of the other submissions here. I found since joining the group that I have been paying more attention to styling and it has been great to learn from others and be inspired by what they have created.

Speaking of learning (my Twitter buddies already this), I am be going back to school soon. I am starting an Interior Design and Decoration course in February which I am really excited about. This is something I have wanted to do for years. I am sure I will learn heaps from the course will probably apply what I learn around my home.

I am starting to get those back to school butterflies in my stomach though. It is the anticipation of not knowing what to expect. Did you ever get that feeling?

PS: I think the flowers might actually be Echinops (Globe Thistle). Is anyone familiar with these plants that can verify?
