Simplicity is Key when Decorating


I find at times homeowners overthink and over accessorize but really what they should do instead is just keep it simple …. Starting with the basics and just adding in some refined and elegant details is all that is needed. Make a statement with color, or a fun fabric or two. Adding just a few touches of whimsy with your accessories and artwork is what really can create an elegant space simply made just for you.

For example this bedroom nightstand with a simply stated lamp and a few extras, just the right size create a beautiful statement in this bedroom

Luxury meets simplicity in this changing area for a baby’s room so elegant and simple with antique white and gold. Love the mothers baby gown framed above the next generations dresser.

Clean and white kitchens always give them a fresh look. Adding more elegant surfaces is what brings more luxury to a kitchen


Neutral and Monochromatic create simplicity in a room but pattern and texture give it more character.
