Actor Rodger Halston once said, “When you work on the little things big things happen.” And so it is. Details are like the icing on the cake. Cake is just fine without icing, but it becomes a beautiful, delectable creation when iced and decorated. Applying that same principle to our homes only makes perfect sense. Imagine your home with only your furniture, your china cabinet without your china, your lamp table without the lamp. It’s kind of like that bare cake just sitting there waiting to be iced.
Decorative accessories allow us to bring more of who we are to our homes. Details like lamps, figurines, mirrors, rugs, china, silver, and clocks add character and style to our home while giving each room that finished look. Collections are a great way to infuse your personality into your interior design. Family heirlooms give your home an aura of historical significance and legacy. With just the right touches, the look and feel of a room can go from blase to rich elegance.
Both of these photos depict beautiful dining room furniture, however these two rooms look very different. The difference is in the details. The room on the right is just furniture in a room while the room on the left is decorated beautifully.
