A recent request…..
Client: ” Dear Denise, we are loving our new living room design! The items you recommended through your “Designed In A Day” program have arrived and I have attached photos. But now, I need accessories. Our bookshelves and coffee table need accessories and I would love to have some direction from you. Can you make any suggestions for where to shop?”
I got this email from a new client, and after we completed her “Designed In A Day” project, she needed help from me to accessorize the space. She was planning a luncheon and needed to accessorize in a flash!
So, here’s what I suggested…………
Check out these membership websites for great accessories and prices…. One King’s Lane, Dering Hall and Joss and Main.
Books. Every room needs books! I love coffee table books on tables, shelves, floors, everywhere!
Fresh Flowers – While a table can be empty most of the time, fresh flowers in a simple container bring color and life to the room.
Collections – Everyone has them. Rocks or seashells from your travels. Pottery. Arranged beautifully, these can be great conversation starters as well.
Accessorizing is my favorite part of a project, but when you are in a pinch, these ideas will help you pull it all together quickly.
What items do you like to use in your accessorizing?
