Feature Friday

Accessorizing . . .

For the past couple of days, I have been going from room to room making changes and organizing.  Two weeks ago, I changed our bedroom around and freshened it up for the new season.  This week I have made changes in the kitchen, guest room and family room.

In doing so, I also made some changes in my accessorizing.  Trying new things and not being afraid to move items from room to room really opens you up to being more creative in your decorating.   Today I am sharing some images of my own as well as others to show some creative ways of using what you have to give your rooms a fresh new look!

In both of these images books are being used along with unique and interesting accessories.

Varying the height of your accessories creates interest and is pleasing to the eye.

This arrangement uses color coordinated elements of interest along with a pop of color.

Within in my own home, I created some new arrangements.  Here in the blue guest room, I rearranged the furniture, de-cluttered and warmed the room small groupings of accessories.

This desk sits in the front living room, I made changes by adding texture, varying the shades of browns, creating height to draw the eye to the pictures above and by adding interesting pieces.

Changes in the family room. 

Next week, I will be sharing some before and after photos of the changes made in the guest room and family room.

Coming up with new and fresh ideas for accessorizing can be frustrating sometimes.

Here are some tips to remember:

Add interest by using textured items and unusual pieces.
Vary the height of your items.
Work in odd numbers.
Layer by propping pictures, stacking items such as books, decorative boxes and other items.
Work of a palette.
Mix in pieces from favorite collections.
Have fun with it!

Happy Friday!
