Design Insider: Accessories

Fabulistas,

Accessories are the best way to transform a home and add your own personality. Much like pieces of jewelry, the most personal way to design a space is to use eclectic design elements that accentuate personal taste.

Here are some tips…

When you use accessories the most important element is layering. Layering in design creates drama. Think of a room as an outfit. The body is your canvas. A great pair of earrings can really make a difference.

Design is dynamic. As the seasons change, don’t be afraid to amp up your style! Try placing vases of fresh flowers around your space to mirror the outside environment.

Great design is not all about symmetry – it’s about balance. Balance is the key factor when scaling a room; it enables a pair of eyes to move through a space, transitioning between every color, pattern and texture in a seamless manner.

Be bold! Do something that you wouldn’t normally do. Plan a trip and choose a destination you that you never thought you would like to go. You may discover a new place to love!
