It's All About The Accessories

I know that I write a lot about the importance of accessories when you are looking to make your space feel "complete" and this project of mine proves this point perfectly.

Last fall, I took on what I lovingly refer to as a "styling job" which basically meant I came in to make a very beautiful house feel more lived in. The family had purchased the home new and tried for a few years to make it feel warmer and more lived in. Frustrated by a lack of knowledge (and progress) they brought me in. Within a few months, and a fair share of accessories, we completed* the project and now the home feels perfectly lived in, and it's just like it has always been that way.

I'm holding on to a few of the other rooms from the project with the hope that they will soon get published (don't you just hate when bloggers do that??) but today I'm able to share with you the transformation of the kitchen! You can see how the addition of some lighting, a runner, roman shades and barstools have completely transformed this room from one that felt a little generic to one that has a unique personality all its own. I know it's easy to get burnt out when you are furnishing your home, but let this post be a little reminder... it really is all about the accessories!  Xx

*Is a project ever really complete? As a designer you know my answer is always "no!" ;)
