Adding White to a Red Dining Room

After adding my new wall ledges in the dining room,

I realized I needed some more visual height

on top of my china cabinet…

So I added these white things up there…

Now the three shelves don’t overpower the china cabinet. 

Yes, that is a fake fern.

  It’s all I had lying around

 but I may put a real plant in there eventually.

I gotta rearrange the inside of the cabinet one of these days…

A little too cluttered, don’t ya think!

So what do you think?

Did adding white on top help?

Or am I just fooling myself?

Maybe what I really need to do is

 move the 3 shelves down a bit and maybe a little closer together?

Be honest, I won’t cry – well, maybe I will…just a little.

    I think it all looks great as is! I love the white, and I love the height. I don't think you should change a thing!

    Great job accessorizing the shelves! I wouldn't change where they're placed at all! I think it looks great there. And I love the chandelier!! The collection of white above the china cabinet looks great- I would have never known that was a fake fern!! 🙂
