What do you think about when you hear “Cherry on the Cake”? Usually it’s the last decoration that tops the cake, right? Well that’s the same idea in home interiors. We plan all the big items like furniture, flooring, window coverings, paint colors and then what happens? The “Cherry on the Cake” never happens. Often the budget runs out before the finishing touches get purchased an they never seem to appear. What a shame! As we say in our office, accessories are the “jewelry for your room.” Where would you be without the perfect necklace for that little black dress or the stylish shoes for your new leather leggings?

Well I have the cure for those missing accessories. Planning! Create a room around you favorite piece of art, or that gorgeous are rug that just sets off an entire room. You can have a neutral room that sings if you plan elements that pop to bring out your personality and style.

Mixed metals are the new buzz in accessories and furniture. Blend bronze and silver, rose gold with copper, silver and gold, or shimmering black with silver. You can do this with pillows, art frames, lamps and tabletop accessories.

Dark navy paired with stark white are on trend again for that classic look. Flowing water color patterns in textile, art and rugs are showing up everywhere. Animal prints in all colors especially, cheetah is still big this season.
