Oh, the joy of accessories!

Du interiors project

A person can have a lovely home with nice things and it can look attractive but the overall effect is that nothing really grabs the eye. 
What could make the pleasantly ordinary come alive are well-placed accessories. It is with decorative objects that a home gets its personality. Their color, form, texture and design transform a room from OK to “wow”.

It could be achieved by adding just one oversize art (bathroom below), one interesting object (the metal display ladder blanket below), or a collection of things that are distinctive and eye-catching like the 3 candle-wall sconces in the bedroom below.
For some, adding that out-of-the-ordinary vase or arrangement or piece of art does the trick.

Objects give rooms personality. 
You may be able to achieve this yourself. Or with the right interior designer you would be amazed what can be accomplished on any budget and with items you own. 

Color Tip: It is best to choose something that picks up a color already in the room or adds a new color that works with what’s already there.

Sometimes an interior designer can rearrange what you already have (like the 3 wall art below) and add one new thing (tall vase with  greenery) that dramatically changes a room. One can hardly believe that so little can create so much pleasure.

During a time of unsettling global issues, coming home to a well accessorized home could bring you a sense of deep satisfaction. That’s not a bad feeling when uncertainty comes into our lives. 
If you don’t feel you can accomplish this on your own, I can do this for you and we can both celebrate the change in your home!

Melissa & Mike visiting the construction site... a marvelous winter landscape! The calendar years of 2020/2021 have been one of the most challenging and unpredictable years of my life. On the other hand, they have also been one of my best professionally. The saying time flies when you are busy is true! My last blog was in November! Therefore, I am enjoying taking a break and sharing with you my pleasure in having had an opportunity to meet some wonderful new clients and catch up with existing clients. They kept me busy with consultations, renovations, new contractors and problem-solving with people working and teaching their children at home. You might think the interval during new construction won't have much of an effect on interior design, but decisions made from initial drawings and during construction have a profound effect on home decor. They set the groundwork for client satisfaction, such as this project. As the point person for a couple building their third (and fi

You can create a place to rejuvenate and retreat to with the addition of details, and details matter!
