Ladies, the beauty about the basic black dress is that you can create many dramatic looks with it. You can dress it from office by day to party at night with the right accessories. A different necklace, brooch, earrings, scarf or shoes will change the entire mood and look of the dress. Gentlemen, same goes for the basic gray or navy suit, change it up with different shirts, ties and shoes.
Well the same holds true when you are decorating your home.
The perfect accessories can complete the look of a room and make it truly your own. Basic furnishings can be personalized and given a whole new look with the addition of the right accessories. It's the little things in a room that add up to make it a warm and inviting place.
When evaluating the room you are decorating, consider light source, color, pattern and texture of the furniture, wall and ceiling color, floor covering and color, and traffic pattern in the room. This will get you started on your way.
Once these decisions are made, then you start to accessorize with throw pillows, tables, lamps, window treatments, artwork and personal objects that you would like to showcase.
Decorating is really just as simple as getting dressed every morning. You know what you like and what works together. I bet there isn't one of us out there who hasn't asked a spouse/partner how we look after we finish dressing for work in the morning or a night out on the town.
We all like a second opinion and someone to guide us through the process.
