A Few Fabulous Accessorizing Ideas

Tip 1#

“Decorating in 3’s”

accessorizing bedroomOne of the decorating rules I use constantly is “decorating in 3’s”.  It helps to keep things neat and uncluttered.

Tip 2#

Use Varying Height With Your Accessories

Accesorizing Ideas from Jennifer Decorates.com

Using different heights in your accessorizing decor adds height and interest.  You can use a few books to give height to an accessory.  Books are fantastic decor items.  I shop at antique stores for old books.   They can be inexpensive and add great character and charm.

Entryway

Here is an entryway that just didn’t have any character or charm. This is just my opinion and preference; but I do not like a mirror hung across from the front door. When guests open the door, the first thing they see is themselves. The small table wasn’t doing anything for the space, so I replaced it with a larger piece of furniture. A lamp in the entryway is always inviting.  Don’t have the bulb watt higher than 40. The soft light is much more appealing and soothing.

Whether you are accessorizing a master bedroom or a guest bedroom, keep things simple and elegant.  Less is more in these rooms.  You want to create comfort along with serenity and calm.  A mirror looks great above this bed.  Many times when beginning to decorate a client’s bedroom, the first thing I notice is that their bedside lamps are too small.  These lamps are the perfect size.

  1. Love this post! You really have a good eye. I always have to confirm with my mom when styling because something always just looks a little “off” and she usually finds it immediately! I’m posting an entryway sneak peak on Thursday, and I’d love your opinion 🙂 Thanks for sharing at “From Dream to Reality” link-up! Pinning and tweeting 😉

  2. I’m so glad I subscribed! Your hospitality intro caused a tiny ache in my heart for simpler times and genuine kindnesses. I didn’t chop wood, but as a child growing up on a cotton mill village in Ga.,I did haul in many buckets of coal. I’ll be forever grateful for my Grandmothers influence. Decor was not high on her must do list, but our painted and waxed floors shined around cotton rugs she’d knotted. She may have operated a cotton loom at the mill, but she could pour tea with as much grace as a queen from her prized S&H green stamp tea pot. Her motto, Feed anyone who comes in your house, because child, you don’t know the last time they ate! Thanks for the memories.

  3. Hello, i Love the paint color on the bedroom wal with the dresser amd black mirror. It is perfect for my room. Can you tell me what color that is please? Thank you.
