We all have talked about this and I would like to put my two cents in about this topic. That is the importance of accessories in interior design. As I tell my clients, a sofa and a few chairs does not “divine design” make. I strongly suggest seeing the project through from beginning to end. It is all about the layers that bring in the warmth and character of a room.
We talk about paint color and floor coverings. The floor covering is crucial to the beginning of the room. The paint color should compliment the floor covering, whether it is carpet or my favorite; hardwood floors graced with a great area rug. Then we work on “baking the cake”, the upholstery and tables, cabinets and the like. Of course, window treatments factor in not only incorporating function but beauty and warmth. Lastly, and sometimes the most fun layer is accessorizing!
Adding striking artwork on the walls and well chosen beautiful sculptural pieces on the tables will be the finishing touch in the room. These are the things that can make a truly extraordinary room. It is so much more than a place to sit and put up your feet!
