3 favorite styling accessories

Accessory styling is the fun part when it comes to decorating.  Details can make or break a space and there are a few accessories that I ALWAYS turn to and that is because they never fail me.

3 Favorite Styling Accessories

1.  Books

If you are a big reader, this is a great storage option for you.  I personally buy books based on their cover (ha, don’t think I’m shallow for that) because I’m not a big reader.  I’ve always wished I was.  I used to (& still do) think that it makes me less of a person because I hate to read.  Once I get into a book I always enjoy it – it’s just the thought of reading that I’ve never been able to wrap my jumpy attention span around.  ANYWAY, books are probably my absolute favorite accessory.  They add height when you don’t have it and color when you need it.  They just never fail you.

2.  Plants

Plants would rival my number one favorite accessory IF I could keep them alive.  It’s quite the joke and also not so funny when I think about the money I throw down the drain on wasted plants.  I was talking with a friend about what to do with dying plants.  I shared that I chunk them without thinking twice.  She mentioned she feels guilty for throwing away a living thing and feels that she needs to nurse it.  I guess I’m a bit heartless when it comes to plants.  If they die on me I take it personal because I TRIED!!  Plants warm a space like nothing else.  You’ll see in the photos below that my #1 & #2 accessory live together a lot..

3.  Trays

Trays are really ideal when you have STUFF and want to make it look put together instantly.  It groups everything and makes it look like it was all born together.  It’s always best to group an odd number of items together – three usually does the job.

  1. Nailed it with all three, and your pics are so lovely! You’re definitely the master (mistress?) styler. I’m a big sucker for anything glass or pottery, as well as all types of containers, like baskets and bowls (cousins to the tray ;)).

  2. I feel the same about reading! I was a voracious reader through middle school, but when we started having BIG books to read for class and over the summer in high school — books that I would not have chosen for myself — I got burned out and now I only read real books at the beach, under my umbrella. I’m always multi-tasking anyway,and books take concentration. You can’t watch a TV show or peruse blogs on the internet while reading a book!
