When Monika of The Doctor's Closet asked me to help get her home "Glitter Guide" ready I was thrilled. Having consulted with her throughout her decorating process I can say there's nothing quite like working with a client who has great style, it makes the job so easy!
I like to begin by removing all clutter. Once you have a clean slate then you can decide what you want to put back into the space, what needs to find a new home and what should be added.
In the bedroom we chose gorgeous pillows and a beautiful Cameroon Juju Hat from The Cross Design. I absolutely love the pattern the pillows bring and texture the feathers add to the room. The large custom Confetti painting is a fun addition and pulls together the palette of gold, silver, white and cream.
The simplest way to add pattern to a bathroom is to display printed towels. These were purchased at HomeSense. I love the whimsical his/hers hooks and the LOVE prints by Jen Ramos are perfect for the space!
I've had many people ask where pillows should be placed on a sectional couch. Having them in the corner can be enough but I also like the look of pillows on either side - it gives lots of opportunity to add texture, warmth, possible color and pattern making any couch inviting! Here we used a monochromatic approach but added interest with different fabrics and textures. A moroccan leather pouf always looks fabulous and can be used as an extra seat or ottoman in a small space. The bar table, also from Homesense, was a fun addition; when you have beautiful glasses and accessories you need to show them off!
Shelving can be daunting to decorate in a home office. In Monika's office we cleared all unneeded papers into IKEA boxes and made her shelves a place to display books, artwork and beautiful ceramics. Artwork can be a print, original painting or even a framed card or calendar page. One of the best functional and decorative items you can add to your home office is a chalkboard decal. This one is from Urbanwalls where you can find different sizes and shapes so you're sure to find one to fit your space perfectly.
