A few days ago, as I was walking to my decorating closet inside one of our guest bedrooms located in our basement My eyes were drawn to the bamboo tray table which I’d used as a place to allow guests to put their things.

I’d passed by this small table numerous times before, but one day it occurred to my mind that I might use it in my upstairs living room and be able to see it and be able to enjoy it.

The funniest thing is that I nearly didn’t take it upstairs since I did not want to ruin the style of my guestroom, despite the fact that the space is utilized a few times every year. Naturally, I must be willing to explore the possibilities for a while!

The bamboo table is now a fixture across the entire house and I enjoy the different ways to use it.

Place your favourite decor in your spaces that are most frequently used, where you will be able to see it and take pleasure in it on an everyday basis.

This chair with the yellow accent is another thing I took from one of the guest rooms. It’s now my turn to appreciate the splash of color it adds to my work space. The gallery wall and the shelves above my desk are changed frequently, too, as I take inspiration for art and decor from different areas of our home.

group items in threes, preferably using an item that is tall and a smaller and more sculptural piece and a horizontal one.

mix soft and hard objects, and objects with diverse styles, colors, textures and styles.
flip dark books over to reveal pages with lighter colors
placing some objects in front of others , and some to the side to give it more depth and create room a more natural appearance.

If you’re not sure it is best to plant it! Real or fake, they can add personality and color to any room. Orchids are one of the most loved plants for me because they’re extremely low-maintenance. After they’ve finished blooming, their foliage is beautiful.

The blue cabinet in our living room used to be an unfinished black nightstand that was stored in our donation closet that was destined to be donated to Goodwill. To bring it back to life I gave it new coating of color (with Valspar Indigo Streamer) and put in some fresh hardware (from Hobby Lobby), and it’s now one of my favorites pieces.
