So many projects lose steam before this most important step is complete. A room containing a sofa and two chairs and a rug is just... boring. A showroom. Empty and cold.
It is the accessories and accents that make will make your house feel warm and like a home. Accessories should be personal, eclectic, quirky, and they don't have to be expensive. You can engage in something seasonal and trendy, or even mix tried and true antiques with careful Target finds. But please, Accessorize!
When budgeting a room, I strongly urge my clients to budget for these extras. Many tell me they don't see the need, or they will get to it when they have more time/ money/ energy. I get it. It can be tricky to find the right balance of touches, but most clients tell me it is the little signature pieces that give them the most pleasure !
So how to make your home feel like you. Call me, I'll help you.
