Many of my design projects are in rental homes, and one of the quirks of building in Singapore is that light and fan switches are often placed high in very awkward and unusual places. Just where I would like to hang a large mirror or piece of art! My solution is to create a layered tabletop vignette of smaller, leaning pieces - adding texture and interest while keeping the switches accessible! Not only is this functional but I love the causal, collected look and the flexibility to change out pieces as you like. The key is to mix pieces of different heights and different mediums. I like to incorporate small framed artworks, mirrors and stretched canvases, as well one or two decorative vases or flora.
Here is a little inspiration I have been gathering!
