Decorate Personal Spaces

Creating a Collection

First rule of adding a collection of items to a room is to remember that odd numbers go together better than even. Take a second to find items in your room that are common in some way. For example, you might have a group of silver items that share a common element. By putting them together on a console or sofa table.

Painting Inside

If you have a wood piece of older furniture lying around that you want to spruce up try painting the inside of the cabinet to add a splash of accent color. Adding accent color can instantly brighten up a space.

Breaking Up Dining Chairs

Typically dining tables come with slats that can be removed. Keeping the slat in the table usually only occurs when we have people over and that most commonly happens for holidays or birthdays. Since we don’t use the full length of the tables you have extra chairs to use. By simply taking those extra unused chairs and use them to flank a console or sofa table in your entryway, a sideboard in your living room, or a dresser in your bedroom.
