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!

Use those treasured items to tablescape!  We love mixing items such as silver, China, seashell, roses, fern from the yard and a variety of other gathered items!   Decorate and indulge!
