We are surrounded by many opportunities to purchase and collect objects for our homes. Just think of all the online resources we didn’t have even 5 years ago!
However, what are the essentials from a design perspective? Probably very different for each person.
Here is my list of design favorites in no particular order:
Artwork by Matisse – all of his work is amazing; when he could no longer paint he turned to these joyful cutouts and created a new art form. A good reminder to focus on what we can do – so inspiring!
Blue and White Pottery – I can’t even remember when I started collecting; timeless and classic. I never tire of it.
Antique Brass – metallics add a bit of glamor any space. Lamps, sconces, candlesticks, some of my favorites are from my Mom.
Potted Plants – nothing like greenery to make a home feel lived in.
Statement Rugs – A terrific way to anchor any space and add color and texture.
Mirrors – best way reflect light and expand your space.
So there you have it. I tried to keep the list to a top 5, oh well – one bonus item! I would love to hear what your favor things are when it comes to decorating!
