This week we are talking all about accessories; how to use them, where to find them, why we need them and how to style them. Today I wanted to take you on a House Tour that demonstrates what a well styled home looks like and how simple decisions can help you select and place your accessories. I just adore the open plan concept and this condo sets the stage for chic styling. Starting out in the seating area; an area rug defines and grounds the seating arrangement, fabulous throw pillows add a subtle pop of color and pattern while a simple coffee table arrangement finishes the look.
The dining area is simple yet chic boasting a piece of original abstract art by artist Nancy Jean Tobin (fellow Jersey girl). A single piece of artwork can finish the entire wall. A bold scale light fixture and table lamp add a touch of drama and warmth when lit. Because the furniture is sleek and black the white and crystal accessories provide the perfect pop and relate nicely to the interesting lines of the chair.
The modern lines of the kitchen enable you to style it in several different ways and can be changed with your mood. With an open plan I like simple and functional choices for the accessories in the kitchen but would glam it up for the holidays a bit.
Below, a pop of pink with this soothing palette feels just right and what better place than flowers to add some color. Entryways are some of my favorite places to accessorize. I love how the natural cherry console relates to the kitchen cabinets. A functional and fabulous ottoman combined with just the right amount of accessories create a perfectly styled entry.
