SELECT SIMPLE, YET RICH, THINGS

The best way to avoid cluttered displays is to style with simple, yet rich items. Our rule of thumb is to stay simple with the overall shape and rich with the material and texture. We say, avoid accessories with excessive, bold wording and anything too small that will get lost.

 

CHOSE A COLOR PALETTE

Chose a few colors that compliment each other, and use these colors, as well as the darker, and lighter tones of each color.

 

COLLECT TREASURES THAT TELL YOUR STORY

We believe that your home should tell your story. Next time you take a memorable adventure, bring home an attractive memento.

 

REPEAT ELEMENTS USED THROUGHOUT YOUR HOME

Seek out accessories made from the same elements used in your home. For example, if your kitchen counters are granite, be on the lookout for granite accessories that will tie your accessories to your home.

 

MIX SHAPES

When designing your displays, include a well-rounded balance of different shapes. For example, balance a rectangular book with a round vase.

 

BALANCE HARD AND SOFT ELEMENTS

Hard elements include anything physically hard, like books, glass, ceramic, or metal, while soft elements are soft items made from fabric or natural materials— balance both and your space will feel more harmonious.

 

LAYER BACK TO FRONT, SIDE TO SIDE, AND TOP TO BOTTOM

Looking at your space from a bird’s eye view, balance items front to back, and side to side, to create a curated, layered look. Strive to equally balance the negative space all directions. Also, looking at your space straight on, balance heights so that tall and short items are dispersed evenly throughout.

 

BEING DISORGANIZED AND HAVING LOTS OF CLUTTER CAN COST FAMILIES BETWEEN 10-15% OF THEIR INCOME.
