Three Top Tips to Accessorising


1. Colour 

Add strong accent colours to compliment your current theme through the use of carefully chosen accessories; such as throws, cushions, vases and ornaments.


2. Style

Keep it simple - stick to a certain style that appeals to you such as Middle Eastern, art deco or French renaissance. Steer clear of mixing styles to avoid unfortunate clashes. 


3. Texture

Choose from an array of fabrics and surfaces to make a room look interesting. This can be achieved through large pieces such as rugs, to small pieces such as photo-frames and mirrors.
