Pull it Together

I'm an accessories girl, always have been, always will be.  The first things I buy when I go shopping are shoes, handbags, scarves and jewelry.  Accessories put the fun into an outfit.  I find myself putting pieces together that maybe I normally wouldn't because I have an accessory that makes it work.  For example, I threw on this navy tank with a turquiose skirt, and because the beaded bracelet encompases both colors, it pulled the outfit together.

Household accessories do the same thing, but instead of pulling an outfit togther, they pull a room together.  Lately I've been feeling like something just isn't quite right in our family room.  It seems cluttered a bit (and it's not just from all the baby stuff).  I'm on a mission to make the colors work together.  The best way to do that is through accessories.  We have an orange desk and a turquiose coffee table in our family room, so I went in search of some items that encompassed both colors.  I found these pillows at Pier 1 and they perfectly integrate orange and turquoise.

Here's another pillow that I made with a fabric that does the same thing.

And then, when I brightened up this side table, I chose a piece of scrapbook paper for the top that tied orange and turquiose together as well.

So when you need to pull an outfit or a room together, think accessories.
I will be back soon with a post about restyling our bookshelves, another step in my mission to streamline our family room! Pin It
