There’s not much that you can’t layer: rugs, textiles, pillows, book, pictures, just to name a few! Layering accessories adds dimension, texture and interest.
2. Use trays
I love trays! Trays are great for giving purpose and grounding to a group of accessories you might have on an end table, as a center piece, or a on counter or coffee table. If you have a grouping of accessories that doesn’t look quite right, try adding a tray underneath and see what happens!
3. Add greenery or flowers
I dare you to find a picture of any room in a magazine that doesn’t have a plant or flowers in it! (Even fake ones count!!) Using plants and flowers adds a sense of freshness and life into any room. And did I mention color?!
These are three simple things designers do that make a big impact on any room! Tonight as you’re scrolling through Pinterest (you know you will be 😉 ) keep a look out for rooms that have layered accessories, trays and plants in each room, and you’ll be amazed!
Is there a room in your house that you can decorate like a designer by adding in these elements? Give it a stab and I bet you’ll love the results!
