Accessorizing a room can be a tricky business. Too much and the room looses focus. Not enough and the effect can be cold and unlived in. Achieving the right balance can often come by trial and error. Adding and subtracting the smaller items while keeping the bigger elements classic and clean can help. Another idea is to incorporate unique, fun and one of a kind elements that make the room more personal. By adding a touch of “personality” to a room you can create the perfect ending story to a well written room.
Sometimes all it takes to update a room is the introduction of a “pop” of color. A rug, wall art, or accent chairs are simple ways of adding another color to a room. The butterfly rug below was designed BarberOsgerby and can be found on The Rug Company Website.
