Adding Accessories to Your Space

by Felicia Benton

Accessories are like jewelry to an interior.  Jewelry allows any woman the ability to add her own touch to an outfit. Using earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, a woman can place emphasis on color, showcase their style, or even make a bold statement.  Well for your interior spaces, accessories allow you to do the same.  Using vases, artwork, area rugs, lamps, and pillows you can add your own special touch to any room.  You can place emphasis on a specific color, or showcase your style by using fabrics in bright bold colors or with creative prints. 

For the Oxford Valley Designer Show House, I along with another designer signed up to design a sunroom in a home that was built in the early 1900’s. This was a room that had a huge fire place, dark wood panels, floors, and moldings.  Our goal was to transform this room and make this it feel warm and inviting.  Using the inspirational  colors in a bright striped fabric, we decorating the room with vases, an area rug, pillows, and bold patterned window treatments.  The effect was a room that displayed the bright colorful stripes, that was warm and welcoming.  But most of all a room that left an impact.
