Something on the ledge

These spaces are very hard to decorate. Last year we put the crosses up, and we love them. It really fills the wall up. We have a two story great room which is really pretty but probably is not the most economical. It costs a lot to heat and cool and wastes room, but is very pretty. We enjoy all the windows and light. Don't know if we will buy a house again with the same look. It makes it really hard to decorate huge tall walls. Before I had a few things up there besides the crosses and never liked it. I like this look better. I moved the candles around and added a tall topiary. I found these really cute fake suitcases the JCPenny outlet. I think they look really cute. I could go back and buy about ten more of them. What would you do if you had this space? There is a plug up there too, not sure what I could do with that??


  1. OHHH... I think it is gorgeous!! I love how you used the space! Love the added touch of that beautiful stained glass window... just the right amount of color! :)

  2. I think that area looks beautiful as you have it.♥

  3. Love all the crosses. So pretty!

  4. Hi Katie! I think you've done a great job with a very difficult space! When we bought our house, we specifically looked for a house that didn't have cathedral ceilings because I was so stumped with how to decorate them, and Mickey was totally against the heat loss!!

    If I had a space like that in my house....hmmmm.....let's mind immediately goes to an old door or gate and then build and layer from there.

    I hope you get out to do some thrifting soon!!


  5. You have such a beautiful decorating style! I wish you could come work on my house!! :)

    The only idea I had with the plugs (depending on if it's connected to a lightswitch so you can turn it off easily) is to push a few strands of white Christmas lights back up there. I have them in my kitchen above my cabinets, and it's just enough glowy light at night w/o being able to see the actual strands. :)

    Oh, this is "Wrigley's Mommy" from the BBs, in case you weren't sure! I saw your blog linked somewhere a few weeks ago and have been enjoying all your cute ideas!

  6. I think it looks great! I have 3 of these ledges now, since we added the room above our living room and I need to find things to decorate them with too. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Wow that looks gorgeous! I love it. I have been strugling trying to figure out how to decorate our future home. We still havent broke ground, so I still have plenty of time. I wished we lived closer so we could go shopping for ideas together:)


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment. Have a blessed day!!
