Those of us that have undertaken a home remodel recently, or a room redesign, will not have it too far out of mind : the final touches, the accessorizing, the little things that complete and bring together the entire design process – can prove to be a touch more complicated than it originally seemed.
It really oughtn’t be, and with the help of the right designer, it isn’t.
Accessorizing in interior design is an art-form, and the best firms will have a dedicated talent just for this aspect of their design projects. A person with an eye for beauty, for history, scale and proper placement – that is capable of arranging deliberate and well choreographed compositions.
It helps to have the right accessories. Generally speaking, these things are best if they have some meaning to you or someone in your home. Books your grandmother gave you, an art piece you picked up while on honeymoon in Paris, hand-blown glass sculptures created by an artist you absolutely are passionate about. The idea is not to have all new things., this is after all your home – not a furniture showroom.
Now, inevitably, you will not have enough stuff to complete the accessorizing. You will need new things. And sourcing these will take you into some very fun places. Purchase the things that say something to you. A beautiful miniature portrait of a dog you never owned, but that you enjoy looking at. Antique keys and tassels for every door, Pillows covered in fabrics that are just yummy. Silk plants that provide just the exact needed color , that will never die on you! Etc.
