A Few Fabulous Accessorizing Ideas
“Decorating in 3’s”

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.
A Few Inspirational Accessorizing Ideas
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.

A little greenery and a little faith in the corner of a bathroom vanity is all you need. I don’t like to use dried boxwood in a bathroom because it is difficult to clean. So how do I clean faux boxwood? I use foam bathroom cleaner! You spray it on, and wash it off! Easy!
