  • Accessorizing ideas can come from many different avenues. Accessorizing a room is the last decorating layer for a room. It is the jewelry of the outfit so to speak. Done correctly, and you have the "wow factor".

  • Three Common Mistakes
    It has been my experience that most people make three common mistakes:

    1. Using too many little items and creating a very cluttered look.

    2. The accessories that are chosen are way under scale for the particular piece of furniture.

    3. Having an over abundance of photos in all different kinds of photo frames.

  • There are many different things that are used for accessories. Photo frames, candle sticks, pottery, etc. You want to make sure that all the items are the right scale, and that YOU love them, and that is the key! It really isn't too hard, once you have chosen the right combination.

  • Here is another example of an entryway that just didn't have any character or charm.

  • This is just my opinion and preference; but I do not like a mirror hung across from the front door. When guests open the door, the first thing they see is themselves.

    The small table wasn't doing anything for the space, so I replaced it with a larger piece of furniture.

    A lamp in the entryway is always inviting. Don't have the bulb watt higher than 40. The soft light is much more appealing and soothing.

  • In this photo is a great example of "decorating in 3's". It is simple, neat, and looks great!

  • This is an example of where a client had under-scaled her accessories. Hanging a large picture above the piano added height. Less accessories on top of the piano made it less cluttered.

  • In this photo, the furniture was the wrong scale for the entryway. This entryway has a tall ceiling, so a furniture piece that was tall and narrow was the best choice. When hanging pictures, don't worry if some of your accessories like the lamp pictured, sits a little in front of the pictures.
