I knew I wanted my decorative painters talents put to use with the watercolor feature. I am not one for feature walls, but I will let it slide this one time! She did an amazing job (as always)!

10 Best Tips to Style Your Home

Choosing the best pieces to style your home to create that final layer can be a timely task but one of the most important! Below are my 10 favorite tips that I use when styling a project!

1. Artwork:

Artwork can be a very personal item that is selected for a home. One mistake that is often made is hanging artwork too high. My rule is to hang artwork at eye level or 57″ off of the ground.

2. Baskets:

img_6305-1img_8800_facetune_13-03-2019-13-52-55img_6727

I love baskets. I often place large baskets throughout a home to store throws in and smaller ones to serve as an attractive “catch-all”.

3. Groupings

Everyone has heard of the “Rule of Three”, which is a good rule to know, but I love to use groupings more then anything. Grouping are a great way to show off a collection of unique items. Pay attention to height and scale when grouping. Varying heights add interest.

4. Books:

Books may be the best accessory of all. They add color, interest and height. You can stack vertically, horizontally, or place a vessel or candle on top for a layered look. Speaking of layering:

5. Layering:

Layering is a trick that many designers use to create a curated look. Using different heights and colors of art, accessories and even pillows is a great way to achieve the layered look.

6. Rugs:

Rugs can add texture, pattern and color to any space. When purchasing rugs for a seating area, try not to “float” the rug, purchase a rug large enough to cover at least the front legs of your furniture.

7. Necessities:

We all have to live in our homes so when styling your home, remember to style the necessities as well! This included, soaps, lotions, produce, oils, spices and pet food dishes!

8. Flowers/Plants:

I have had a blog posts on this topic and feel passionate about how much flowers or plants can transform a space. See How to Incorporate Flowers in Design and Plants in Design by Ashley Moyer .

 

9. Trays:

Everything looks better in a tray! You can place a tray on your counters, ottomans, beds, tables and bars.

10. Pillows:

Pillows can add color and texture to any piece of upholstery or bed. Use different shapes and don’t forget to karate chop those square pillows!

I hope you enjoyed my top 10 tips for accessorizing your home. If you are like many others out there and feel this still seems like a daunting task, give me a call and we can set up a consultation (near or far)!

A Fun Take on a Guest Bedroom

Today I am revealing a guest bedroom that I am head over heels for! The lucky guests who will be staying in this room will be surrounded by fun, pattern and color, a trio I love!

The bedroom inspiration came from this amazing blue and green chinoiserie fabric. It was such a great palette to play off of with shapes and color.

My client requested enough sleeping space for a family to stay in the space so we added this sofa sleeper with a pair of movable ottomans. This allows guests the option for a sitting area or sleeping quarters.

The addition of textures, amazing art of images from around the world, fun lighting, patterns and layers created a colorful yet comfortable retreat!

XOXO,

New and Old!

Today I am sharing with you an open concept town home that I recently designed. I always love working in my clients existing items and this one was definitely a mix! I was given the challenge to take items from their last home which had a formal aesthetic and incorporate pieces into a more casual, transitional space. I just love how it turned out!

The open concept of the space does not offer a true foyer, rather an entry for guests. Here we wanted to set the tone for the rest of the space by designing a custom chest that offers a hint of the color scheme and what is yet to come!

The next area you would walk into would be the family room. The goal here was to maximize seating without making the space feel cramped. I reupholstered the two existing swivel chairs to give them a more updated feel and added some fun patterns and colors to tie it all together!

These dining chairs were a deep traditional wood finish and I had my friends at Methany Weir paint them to give them a more casual feel. We mixed these in with a new table, bench and an existing grandfather clock. In the kitchen behind the dining area you can see some chairs that I also had reupholstered to mix in the space.

The mix of all of these finishes makes me so happy!

Creating a space for family and friends to gather in the kitchen was very important. We stuck with white cabinetry to make the space feel larger and added an amazing modeled tile. The tile added so much character and depth to the space.

The last area on the main floor of this home is master bedroom. The denim color of the headboard and bedding worked perfectly with the existing nightstands.

Do you have pieces you would like to incorporate in your new space? Do not be afraid to mix, it adds character and makes your home feel personalized.
