Inexpensive Way To Decorate | Shannon Bieter Interiors

by Shannon Bieter, March 6, 2013


Does your space overwhelm you when it comes to accessories?  If you answered “YES” you are not alone.  Most of the people I work with are at a loss when it comes to accessorizing.  It’s the last piece of their puzzle.  Accessories give your room a personality and a glimpse into the people who  live in the space.  Add some conversational pieces to your space by displaying your favorite picture, a vase you’ve inherited or a piece you purchased on a trip with friends.  All of these pieces make your space unique and distinguish it from looking like a model home.

The picture above is a dining space I worked on with a client who has fabulous taste.  We found an antique iron gate that was made into a mirror and placed it on the wall to reflect the warm light from the chandelier.  Also, I wanted to find a crisp, updated version of a ginger jar lamp which would pop from the navy walls.  We then started working on the alternate dining wall.  We framed six watercolor botanicals with Larson-Juhl frames.  Each of these accessories personalized this formal dining room and created an inviting space to entertain.

Next time you look around your space and feel overwhelmed give it a whirl and start accessorizing one wall at a time.
