For todays post I thought we would look at room accessorizing. For many of us this can be difficult as we all have favorite things to display but do not want to end up with a cluttered look.
Here are some quick tips to create an interesting arrangement. Cluster your items together using colour or objects in a unified theme. Vary the height for visual interest perhaps starting with a tall flower arrangement(orchids are perfect for this....see previous post) or branches. Tall items start behind and work your way out with smaller items. Work in odd numbers 3, 5, or 7. Asymmetrical arrangements are more casual than symmetrical. Think about scale... vary the size of your items depending on your surface. A stack of hardcover books sitting on a coffee table can be used as a riser for smaller items.
One thing I like to do is take a digital image and then review it. I find this helps to give your room a different perspective. Let's look at some beautifully accessorized rooms and spaces for inspiration ...starting with livingrooms.
