The following post was written by Suzanne Lasky, owner and founder of S Interior Design in Scottsdale, AZ. We hope you enjoy her fun post on accessories which we all agree is vital to any home!

Accessories – Your Home Isn’t Fully ‘Dressed’ Without Them

When S Interior Design develops a budget for a design project, there is ALWAYS a line item for accessories.

Accessories to add to your bar

The analogy I will offer is this; you can put on a stunning clothing outfit but unless you then proceed to put on jewelry and make-up you will look less than stunning.

At times, a professional designer is called in to select and place these finishing touches. Sometimes it is not clear to a homeowner why a room full of brand new furniture doesn’t look so fabulous like it did in the furniture store. You can get insights into how to accessorize from shelter magazines, on-line design web sites (one of our favorites is HOUZZ) and the furniture stores.

When it comes time to choose your accessories, function should be considered as well. For example, if you have young children, breakable objects on low table tops may not be the best choice. I often put a decorative box on a coffee table in family rooms to store all the many remote controls we use to operate the TV etc.

Dry Bar Accessories

Two people can start with the same basic furniture and once the accessories and artwork are added the rooms will look not at all alike. Can you imagine how unfinished this entry area below would look without the decorative accessories and plants???
