Guest Post – Design Shuffle & Detail Orientated Decorating
Hi, I’m Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a social media site that brings together designers and design lovers from around the world to share projects and inspiration. I’m excited to be guest blogging about detail oriented decorating for A Fashionable Life for Me. In interior design, personality can really be expressed in the details. It is the little things, the little touches that turn a well-decorated house into a home. Enjoy!
This bedroom is a great example of detail oriented decorating. Piping on the linens, nailhead trim, tufting on the bench and a beautiful vignette on the nightstand give this bedroom a polished look.
Create a vignette rather than just put things on a table top or bathroom counter. Group items on a pretty tray to make the objects feel special.
Good design is in the details. Trim on the sofa that coordinates with the pillow and tassels on the throw are both décor details that add the extra something.
This entry is a chic greeting to guests and family alike. Coordinating the blue glass with the lamp in the living room ties the two spaces together—just one of many great decorating ideas seen here.
Paying attention to the details in your existing décor can transform a room, or at the very least a bookshelf. Style your bookshelf in vignettes with books, objects and art. This is a great way to add style to your living room designs.
Create décor details of your own by stacking books by color, adding a small work of art or printable, mixing in unique objects. Make it a personal statement through the details.
A mix of colors and patterns in this bedroom design is held together by the details that tie everything together. Embroidery on the throw pillow and trim on the lampshade are both easy details to add to existing pieces.
A chic Mad Men inspired décor detail for the holiday entertaining season is a bar cart filled with pretty bottles, glasses and libations. A bar on a buffet or console table works just as well.
