Like the icing on a cake, a house is not a home until you accessorize! These days, there are so many “tchotchkes” to choose from, it’s hard to know where to begin. No one wants their home to look cluttered, but without these essential accessories, your space may not look quite right.

A bookcase is always a great canvas for accessories–bookends not only serve a purpose, but can add a little interest to an otherwise boring novel! Alternating your shelves with frames and other interesting objects will break up the monotony of any étagère or bookcase.

A coffee table is one of my favorite places to accessorize. David Hicks was known for his beautiful “tablescapes” and a coffee table is the perfect spot to have a little fun with your décor! Whether you choose a decorative tray or a bouquet of flowers–try to vary the size of your objects and don’t be afraid of asymmetry. Often an odd number of items grouped together will be much more effective than a perfectly balanced arrangement.
