Opinions?

This is probably the most ridiculous post in the history of blogging but, here goes. Please tell me which arrangement of candlesticks looks the best. I usually drag my sister over to help me with this sort of thing but if I dragged her for nine hours, I would be a little tired. har-har

Option A


Option B


Option C

I bought these candlesticks at Target, they were on clearance and I just loved them. I have those other plants (fake, of course) that I would like to use in the dining room, too. I am in a quandry. The buffet seems to be lacking something, maybe a more colorful fabric runner? I already tried a Paul Klee framed print over the buffet but it didn't look right. That chandelier is huge and makes anything on that wall look garish.

What's a girl to do??

Help!

I like B.
No good explanation for it, though.

I've been meaning to tell you how much I loved Wit. I adore Emma Thompson, and the subject is so fitting for what we all are going through right now. My husband and I cried all night over the movie them promptly bought a copy to share with the rest of the family. I also bought the play in book form.
I think of you when I take it off the shelf (often, to re-read some of the lines) and I am so thankful that you recommended it.

I happen to like any arrangement with a Veggi-tale theme; so they all look good to me.

Laney, can I offer a third option? I'm not a fan of symmetry (much to my husband's dismay), so I would stack a coule of pretty books on one end of the server, and put one plant on the books and the other on the server next to it. Then I would cluster the candles on the other end of the server.

Ignore me if you are symmetry kind of gal! Then I would also go with B.

I like Option B too.

coming out of lurkdom for this most important request

My vote is for B.

kelli said...

Option B!

Dy said...

I was going to say something similar to Amy's suggestion. My house just isn't formal enough to call for that much symmetry. I'd go for a more asymetrical look - books on one end, or a framed picture w/ the candlesticks around/behind it. Break it up a little.

But, the pictures did make me sit up straighter... ;-)

I like them all, so I can't help. I hope you figure out what to do! Sorry...

Plan B, definitely!

I am with Amy and Dy, and if you don't like that, I would go with B. I also think you need somethng on that wall. Maybe not Paul Klee, but something. Maybe something painted by a boy, and framed?

Of the three options, I like B. But I agree that maybe it is too symmetrical. Maybe you could move one of the plants to another place in the room and replace it with something else. I personally wouldn't do books in a dining room--maybe a pretty bowl with fruit. For the wall, how about a collection of black and white photos in matching frames? By the way, your house looks lovely!

Ang said...

Another vote for "B" although I am intrigued by the idea of going assymetrical and maybe bunching the plants on one side or something. You could even put one of the plants on a little block or something to give it some height.

Jess said...

B for me too, looks more "fung shui" (I know I botched the spelling).

Asymmetrical would give me hives! ;-)

In my house it would be option D, thrown on the floor and smashed. And the dirt making inside sand castles... *sigh*

I own NOTHING nice. ;-)
