The Art of Accessorizing

By
Home Stager with Abella Home Staging & Redesign

The appeal of a beautiful room has many aspects, physically, visually, and emotionally. Every room needs careful attention, from floor to ceiling. Each step builds upon the next. Careful consideration must be taken when accessorizing and creating a room. Keep in mind the style and "feel" you are trying to create. What story are you trying to convey?

 

Here are just some things to consider:

       1. Create interest by using unexpected art for accessorizing.

       2. Shop at many different stores. This will help create a room that does not appear to be from  

          "Room to Go" catalog.

 

   

     

 

      3.When decorating, odd numbers work best.

      4. Placing a mirror over a mantel will only reflect the floor, so don't do it!!

     5. Use old windows, textiles, etc to create unique display.

     6. Create your own art or accessories.

      7. Hire a professional like Abella Home Staging & Redesign; we're not as expensive as you think and you will have a one-of-a-kind room.

 

Whatever you do, have fun doing it. The key is to use art and accessories that feel personal and reflect your taste!!

Carmella- what a great post!  I totally agree....shopping at different stores can keep you home from looking like a page out of a catalog.
