When you first start a design project, it’s important to look around your house and ask yourself, “Do I love what surrounds me?” One of the most important aspects of designing a home is to absolutely love the space you live in, so be sure to fill it with the colors, objects, and artwork that mean something to you and your family. Your home should tell a story of who you are and where you have been.
Looking for a way to organize your home while still adding a personal touch? Try using trays! They are everywhere and available in so many great shapes, sizes, colors and textures. You can place them on an ottoman or kitchen island, use them as a centerpiece on your table, or place them in your bathroom to organize jewelry and makeup. Trish has even used them in client’s homes in closets and next to bathtubs. Looking for the perfect tray? We have a great collection of trays that will add the perfect finishing touch to your space!
If you are looking to organize your bookcases while still having personality, we have the answer for you! First, it is important to remember less is more and the trick to a fabulous bookcase is to not fill them with tons of little things and little frames instead fill them with books, bigger objects and frames, and one- of-a-kind pieces that tell something about you and your personality!
With the holiday season finally here, it is time to start decorating those trees! Your Christmas trees, like your home, should reflect what you love and not what the style of your house is. Try filling your tree with bright reds, greens, and anything that glitters. Think creatively when decorating the top of your tree. Incorporate frames, ribbon, and glittery sticks. Last year, for one of Trish’s clients, she added a bunch of hanging pictures frames around the tree. Pictures of when the kids were younger and images of great grandparents filled the frames. It’s a great way to personalize a tree.
