WhisperWood Cottage style is usually heavy on the vintage pieces with a few contemporary pieces mixed in here and there. In the case of this nook in the master bedroom, it was just the opposite. It was filled with contemporary items only...the bench, the bolster pillow, the mirror, and even the wall design. While I appreciated the look of it, it was feeling "not quite right."
After reflecting on it for a while, I realized that while I love contemporary pieces, I need them to be balanced by the character of vintage finds. The simple addition of a pair of vintage ballet slippers (found at a flea market last fall) made the space work for me. It took it from not quite right to just right.
Vintage is mintage!
