DESIGN CHAT:: HOW TO ACCESSORIZE FOR A HAPPY HOME

Your home should be your sanctuary.  Your special space.  A safe place from the rigors of every day.  I started to notice things around my house that truly made my house, happy.  And also things in my family and friends homes that were interesting and invoked happiness.  A carefully placed accessory or group of things can personalize a space.

A cluster of books on a bookshelf is always interesting.  You can organize them by color or size.  If you do not have your own books for the shelves, you can even purchase faux books with themes or colors like these E. Lawrence Ltd. books. 

Adding fun picture books of your travels or interests are a great way to add happiness to your coffee table.  It is also a great conversation topic starter with friends.

Animals make us at LGD happy and we like to use them in our accessorizing.  Beloved pets, magical creatures, and anything in between can be used to style a special spot in your home. Picking up small creatures in your travels or at an antique store can help add a bit of whimsy to any design.

PILLOWS THAT PACK A PUNCH

Throw pillows do not have to have just a function of comfort.  They can add a pop of color to a sofa or a chair and can brighten your mood or calm you with the perfect texture.
