The Art of Accessorizing...

Do you love accessorizing? I sure do. I can spend hours changing out accessories. I usually have two rules when I accessorize. 1)Always use odd numbers and 2) I always include greenery. I'm not sure why I like a lot of greenery but maybe it's because I grew up in Arizona where there isn't much of it.

Here are some inspiration pictures that I use when accessorizing my home. (These pic's are not from my home)



































Hope ya all have a great Monday!

Cute pictures. Like all of the ideas. As I have told you I have a hard time pulling something together if I don't have something to go by. I really like that round finial. Great pictures.

Great pictures and inspiration! I like to rearrange stuff and put things in different spots...almost like getting something new.
Have a great day!

I am with Darlene, I have tunnel vision with things and unless I see something different it is hard for me to pull it off. I love to decorate but for some reason it seems easier to me to see something someone else should or could do then what I can do in my own house. Is that the way with everyone?

I am in the midst of changing out all of my architectural niches as they have been the same for about a year now. Even though the design society frowns on artificial greenery I think if they had to live in Arizona they would soon change their minds.

I shall remain "Queen of the Faux greenery". :)

Laura,

I hear this a lot about faux greenery being "out of date". I've tried real plants in Arizona and they just don't do well. I assumed it was me-lacking a green thumb. I love greenery and will always have it. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Thanks for sharing them.

Does the lampshade in the top picture have writing on it? That would be perfect in my writing office that I'm desperately trying to decorate.

Greenery! Live or fake...who cares, it always makes you feel refreshed. I'm always stuffing greenery into all kinds of corners. Keep up the accessorizing!

Those are some great pics for inspiration. Oops is a store here in Northwest Arkansas. As far as I know it is a one of a kind. I posted about it awhile ago. I even gave a picture tour. :)

Brandee, what a good job of pulling things together in such a good way. I can't wait to see your pictures when you decorate for the holidays. Wow

Hi Brandee :)

Great inspiration pics! I wish I could accessorize, but it'll have to wait until we move. Too much accessorizing is a no no when selling the house dontcha know LOL

Oh well....

Hey Brandee!

I like the new banner-especially the center wreath and the bunny in the upper left corner-wish i had him in my living room!

Here's my question about accessorizing: do you and how often do you rotate your accessories to other parts of your home? I think i get stuck in a rut and nervous about moving them around, but like the idea of keeping it fresh!

Rae said...

I always use odd numbers too! I don't usually use greenery but love feathers and moss and other natural elements. I think we crave a bit of nature in our homes no matter what the medium is!

Also, I finally posted my tag today! Thanks for thinking of me!

P.S. Obsessed? No....I never would have guessed that! :) I'm wicked excited for the book to come out too!! I feel like I should get a babysitter for the kids so I can read alllllll day and not worry about them!!

I love these pictures. I think it can be so difficult to decorate "little nooks" sometimes, and I'm always looking for inspiration. Thank you!
