Collection!

A fabulous gift idea is to start a collection!  It's a great time to begin the process of collecting a fabulous item, from jewelry to home decor items!  I personally love classic Wedgewood!

Add don't take away features!

We live in a time now of TV "redos" that can be really great, or just generic blah!  Tell the story of the home!  If you are a contemporary person in style, consider a historic interior where paint color modernizes historic details, let the house become a sculpture!   If you are classic, consider saying that within a contemporary space by the way you choose to decorate. Even a Stark white box can become warm with fabrics, statement furnishings, and lighting.   Above all, make it home!

Look to nature!

If having trouble creating a color palette for a room, take a walk!  Nature provides the best inspiration in color, pattern, texture, lighting and more!  the greens of a spring marsh, the gray of Spanish moss, the dramatic clouds and sunset lighting!  Take a walk and be inspired!

Get Fresh!

Even if it's a small bouquet...use fresh!!!  Whether from nature or purchased locally, add small bundles scattered about!  We love the charm of it!  And of course, always bedside for guest!

Go big!

A successful space plays on scale as one of the many success's!  I say play with size!  A small room can hold a large statement piece!  Don't be scared!  Playing against the rules will make a memorable room!

We suggest small collections!

Small collections bring huge impact!  Group them together or scatter them around a space!  Wall brackets, shelving, cabinets, or table tops can all be enhanced and made beautiful with a collection of a common theme! This collection will proudly anchor a corner cabinet with high style!

A suggestion!

When needing to freshen up a bathroom but not wanting to totally redecorate, I suggest this...think SPA!  Nothing freshens up a tired bath more than changing a few items!  I suggest white towels, white bath mattes, and a white shower curtain!  Just playing down these items can create a spa like space!  A white container with an orchid is fabulous too!  Crisp and clean and EASY!

Use a mix! Use it all!

We believe a successful space is not defined by one look or style!  Marry rough with refined!  Here we have paired A fabulous Antique carpet with rough plank tables, Empire chairs, baskets, porcelain, and garden items!  Mix it all!

Lighting!

Use a variety of lighting around your home!  From the largest overhead fixture to the smallest lamps placed around for a warm glow!  Here we have used small contemporary lamps to bring a glow to this living room.  Scatter them around.  Low lighting can really set the tone.

Use vintage!

We love this vintage carpet found recently at auction and used on a home that is filled with color!  The teals and Navy and cream was already represented beautifully, and now the orange grounds the space!  Love it!
