What do you say about a chinoiserie urn that's 5' tall. Can you say "unexpected"?? I kind of like it!
You know that "rule" that says you shouldn't have lamps too big for your table?
Send it back to the 80's cause these lamps do a lot more than provide reading light!

I have absolutely no desire to see myself getting out of the bathtub (maybe if I were 20 yrs younger...or 20 lbs thinner!), but this aged, oversized mirror is so romantic! I love this room!
I believe this is an IKEA chandelier. It's overly large size is balanced by the delicate flower petals that make up the shape. And isn't it fun to see the relationship between the wreath and the chandelier.
House and Home
I don't know who actually designed this space, but I can tell you that they are completely comfortable in their own skin because this is a BOLD move! Not only is this dresser huge, but it's pink! This could be the "elephant in the room" if you don't have the attitude to pull it off!

If you've followed Divine Distractions for very long, you know I love large art. I spent 4 years as a full-time mural artist until the desire to climb scaffolding and tote paint cans lost it's glam. Naturally, I'm drawn to oversize art. It always creates drama and becomes the focal point wherever it is.
I know I used this same picture in my last post, but I can't ignore the scale of this lamp on the kitchen counter. When you study it a bit, it looks like a a chubbett with her hands on her hips! LOL ! The added whimsey of this bunny photo certainly brings the unexpected to this kitchen!
These oversized front doors in Jane McGarry's home (she's a newscaster here in Dallas) are quite imposing, but their scale really works in this home. You can see more of Jane's home here.
I love overscaled objects. Using them certainly creates emphasis in a space. Do you use overscaled pieces, or do they feel uncomfortable for you? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
