Making a statement with Accessories:
Take a look at this unusual center piece. This is not your typical arrangement. This large and unique clear glass vase holds simply a tall palm stem which makes a statement all by itself. What I like about this vase is that it’s glass, and glass gives the illusion of more space being it’s see through. You find this same approach in using accent furnishings like coffee tables, and end tables. Glass gives a clean fresh open feeling to a room. I love how the decorative accent pieces are displayed around this vase. What makes this arrangement is its size which is eye catching for anyone who walks in the room. You can create a similar look by using a very tall glass candle holder, again adding a few items around it or a little off to the side make it more interesting.
Let’s look at the nice accent pillows in these chairs that add to the colors in the room with its fun pattern. It pulls the drapery and wall color in by adding some extra colors and the fun textured design. Don’t get scared using a pattern you’re drawn to, it will work as long as it’s complimenting the other colors in the room.
Looking at the mirror, this again is not your typical wood frame mirror that is seen a lot in homes. This mirror is unique and fun with a fantastic texture around the frame drawing your eye to it. This again would have many asking where did you find this. Explore when looking for that unique mirror, it could be round, oval or square. And look to the sides of this mirror again not your typical candle holders many sometimes use, or a wall shelf/sconce, but lanterns, love it! This will bring ambiance to the room in a unique way when lit. There are other ideas you could use beside the mirror, fun oyster plates in different figurations, and even silver trays I have seen on the walls using with the plates, beautiful! Sky is the limit when accessorizing as long as you try and keep it to scale. The added pieces make it on this sideboard. Really like this idea displaying a tray to hold items; you could even go with a larger and decorative one if you wanted. This room has a clean and fresh look and it’s very welcoming to any quest. The photography here really captured the detail and statement these items made, that’s why I just had to write about it.
Until next time, happy decorating!
