Whether we are accessorizing a room with pillows or paintings or accessorizing our outfits with jewelry and snazzy shoes – ACCESSORIZING is an ART.
Accessorizing can go TERRIBLY wrong for some, and sadly I’ve seen it done more times than I can even count.
Here are a few of My Tips on Accessorizing:
LESS IS MORE! I promise this is true when it comes to accessorizing. If you have a small table and fill it with accessories – then you have gone to the TERRIBLE wrong side of accessorizing. A good rule of thumb for the small table would be – If you can’t see the surface due to all your accessories then - LESS IS MORE! Take away about half of the accessories off of the table.
SET OF 3! Everything looks better in a set of 3 especially over a set of 2! 3 Pillows on your sofa instead of 2 will look better I promise. 3 Candle Sticks will look better instead of 2 – It’s a proven FACT time and time again, and it rings true even today.
MIX IT UP – Yes, you heard me right! What I mean by Mix It Up you may ask? Well what I mean is don’t be afraid to mix up your new and old pieces whether that be furniture or accessories. Mixing it Up gives a room a more well rounded and welcoming feel.
NOT SO MATCHY MATCHY – Have you ever walked in a room and everything matched to a T? Being Matchy Matchy isn’t always a good thing! A good rule of thumb is to try not to buy all of your accessories in 1 trip! Why you may ask?! Because they come off as MATCHY MATCHY! A room looks more complete and finished when things aren’t all from the same collection. Try it and see how more well rounded your space looks!
