Styling is the step in the design process that adds the finishing touch to your home design, and with these top tips you are sure to make a statement!
TIP 1: Make it Beautiful & Functional
Of course every space in your home should be beautiful, just be sure not to forget that it should also be functional! When styling a home it is always important to choose objects that add to the beauty while serving a purpose. Using baskets and decorative containers adds style and serves as storage. In the same way, adding a tray to your kitchen island (or any table in your home!) can serve as both a focal point and, if your home is anything like mine, a catch all for keys & other knick-knacks.
TIP 2: DON'T OVERDO IT
Sometimes, less really is more! You want your spaces to evoke a feeling of serenity, overloading the senses by adding too many pieces to a space will certainly make it feel disjointed and distracting.
TIP 3: SIZE MATTERS
And shape does too! Be sure to use varying shapes and sizes of decorative pieces throughout your home. If you are styling your couch for example, be sure to add throw pillows of different sizes, color and texture. Same goes for shelves, and trays; mix it up and create an eye popping look.
TIP 4: SOMETHING OLD & SOMETHING NEW
Your home should feel like you and reflect you throughout. Incorporating vintage pieces (a family heirloom perhaps), family photos, or treasured pieces you may have picked up along the way throughout your life are a must in every home!
