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!

Spring Home Refresh!

Beauty comes in many forms, and there is no better place to celebrate it …and your life…than the place you call home. Especially Spring, because this season is all about renewal and rejuvenation as your eyes drink in the rainbow of colors you see blossoming all around you. Our senses are aroused by escaping from grey, cloudy days. Windows and doors are opened to inhale the sweet smell of Spring days. Here I am offering ideas for you to bring in to your home to welcome one of our favorite seasons.
COLOR ME SPRING My favorite Spring palette combines white, camel (chairs below), and soft pink or blush. They are fresh, striking – and unquestionably in season. They also provide some warmth without going too over the top, if pastel colors are not your favorites.
Another idea is using all-white to brighten your home for Spring. If you don’t wish to go all-hog, choose sheer, white curtains that welcome in the sun such as white linens and add fresh houseplants.

Style for the season

What do we all have in common when the weather turns cooler?

We don’t want to get out from our warm beds! But is your bedroom beginning to look tired? Now is the time to bring a little cheer to your slumber palace. If your bedroom doesn’t need it, think of your guest room(s). It doesn’t take a major investment to make some changes to create a wide awake look.
Step 1: I recommend starting with an “anchor piece” like a rug. Choose colors from warm rust, browns and beiges that are easy to find this time of year.  This tangerine rust area rug creates a cozy and inviting feel to any bedroom.


The white and charcoal grey graphic rug below works well with the warm wood and leather bench and caramel accent pillows.

Step 2:  I recommend neutral sheets and layering your bedding with one or two accent colors. Layers are all about warm, cozy TEXTURE! I’m picturing wool, velvet (traditional and crushed) quilts, or soft nubby pi…

Affordable solutions to bring new life to your kitchen!

If you are like most women, you spend a considerable amount of time in your kitchen and like most women (and men) , a refreshing new look would lift your spirit. How do you accomplish that and not break the bank? The answer is mixing finishes.

You can incorporate black and gold to any stainless steel kitchen appliances and achieve a bolder, lived-in edge.
If you are remodeling or refreshing, cabinet pulls, light fixtures, faucets and other hardware are the easiest ways to achieve a kitchen change and experience the upbeat pleasure of new.
While oil-rubbed bronze and brass were the most recent haves, people are now experimenting with a variety of metal finishes, including champagne brass and charcoal stainless.
There are many beautiful options besides the once popular brass. I like to mix finishes, and I think my clients are comfortable with that. A client might opt for brass hardware and a different metallic color in lighting. One of my favorite finishes is mixing black or really darker bron…
