Good morning! Here are some valuable decorator styling tips that come in handy for me all the time!
1. Style in Threes
Especially on a square or round coffee table or on a mantel or bookshelf.
Even if you have overhead lighting, it’s important to have ambient lighting for evening and reading…usually at least three sources.
Symmetry provides a pleasing balance. Victoria Hagan uses it here along with sufficient ambient lighting (and notice the three items on the coffee table).
4. Add fresh flowers and greenery or branches
5. Use designer fabrics when possible
6. Group your collections
in one place for greater impact.
7. Edit objects in every room to avoid clutter
like we did in this craft/sewing room
and baby’s nursery.
That’s it… seven decorator styling tips: style in threes, provide ambient light (three sources), add fresh flowers or greenery, strive for symmetry, designer fabrics elevate your look, group your collections and edit your things to what you truly love!
Speaking of decorator styling tips… after I read Sherry Hart’s post on World Market finds, I had to run over there! We have the original one down the street. I picked up this colorful dhurrie rug (the goal is to distract the eye from the dated kitchen 🙂 It’s soft, too.
Also, on Saturday Howard and I saw “Crazy Rich Asians.” I thought it was great! I read the first two books (Amazon) and just bought the third, “Rich People Problems” now that it is out in paperback (I’m cheap that way).
Have a wonderful week!
