The good news in bringing anything into our homes,
is it is all in the eye of the beholder.
What ‘calls’ to me may not call you, but it is all good.
We are all just enjoying our homes and our own
Here are a few of my favorite home accessories.
*Blue and White
That is probably not a surprise. I use blue and white everywhere. It is one of the single most unifying elements
in my home. It has the ability to look classic and timeless and just a tad modern all at the same time.
For blue and white pieces to call to me, they obviously do not have to be expensive or historical.
True to my personality, I would much rather find pieces digging in a flea market box or at Ross- the best retail
flea market on the planet.
Every room in my house has multiple mirrors in it. Our 1950’s ranch fixer upper (understatement)
has eight foot ceilings.
The remedy? Larger pieces of furniture and mirrors that sparkle and move the light.
I should correct that to say all trays. Everyone talks about how trays anchor a grouping, but in my home
they also do something else.
They hide what is underneath (scratches, imperfections).
Guess what else I use to do the same thing?
Mirrored place mats. It is all about moving the light.
Over the years, I have stockpiled a collection of flea market lamps and lamps from Ross.
I am not a fan of overhead lighting.
My favorite way to dress up a tired lamp is using a black lamp shade.
It anchors a lamp and stops the eye and the room from fading away by seeing too many white ‘hats’ on all of
Books are the great pedestals and hiders in my decor world.
I have to have them. They elevate things in a grouping and provide a touch of classic color that
appeals to me.
What do they hide? Whatever needs hiding.
