One Room Challenge / Our 6 Week Living Room Makeover - Week 5

Accessories - those small touches that contribute to the unique character and life of a space. While they may not seem important compared to furniture, accessories can often make or break a space. They impact how a space feels, and ultimately you want a space that feels personal, authentic, and complete. In our post for week 5 of the One Room Challenge, we’ll be sharing our approach to accessorizing your home.

We take a Goldilocks approach to accessories: not too many and not too few! Too many can feel cluttered while having too few can feel like you’re living in a hotel. Via a thoughtfully curated selection of accessories, you can add depth to your spaces and amplify the beauty - all without sacrificing functionality.

For our living room makeover, we selected several key new pieces that add visual interest. We're also mixing in a couple trinkets that we’ve collected over the years that have sentimental value. It's always important to select varied materials, colors, and textures that create a collection of accessories that feels personal and unique to your story. Don't be afraid to put together different styles, metals, or finishes as long you as you love it - that's exactly how you avoid a showroom or over-designed look.
