I'm always scared to oversize anything, but those pictures show I shouldn't be!

Agree! I love when there's something unexpectedly huge in a room- especially when it's like that vase of flowers in one of your pictures, where you have to look at it multiple times in order to "get" it, because it looks like it should be small. Very cool!

I agree -- I'm struggling with scale right now in my apartment. I have a corner area that is SO empty and makes me sad. I'm thinking I need some giant over-sized branch-like flowers. Oh, and I DIE for that lamp in the first picture -- gorgeous.
