What Houzz contributors are saying:
Repetition is created naturally if you have collections. Take the dogs that march across this mantelpiece: They add such whimsy and interest. Notice though, that they are not all over the room. There has been remarkable restraint in the repetition, which is not always easy for those of us who love to collect. Note, too, the way the topiaries are used. They bring a wonderfully organic balance to a room that's brimming with personality.
A pair of urns or planters that may generally be used outside an entryway can be an interesting addition to a fireplace or even a doorway in your house. You can also divide them up and use them in separate rooms or choose to put one away and keep one out.
