How To Pick An Accent Color

We are often asked how to choose an accent color for a room.  An easy thing to do is to pull a color from an existing piece in the room.  For example, using your area rug for inspiration.  Let's say you have an area rug with a deep red, tan and black design on it.  Pull the deep red out of the rug by focusing in accents in that color.  Use the red in the throw pillows on your sofa, your drapes, silk flowers, candles or a vase.  You get the idea.  Just don't over do it.  The point of an accent color is to bring out a color in the room, not to make it the only color in the room.  An accent piece such as a painting, a vase or a decorative bowl can also serve as inspiration for a color to continue as an accent in your space.  For more great design ideas visit

Coat trees come in many styles and materials. For example, brass, wrought iron, wood or metal. They may be sleek and modern, traditional or more ornate.

Tip of the Day- Decorating Small Spaces

One big piece of furniture in a small space is better than many small pieces of furniture in the same space. Most people think that you can’t put a large piece of furniture in a small space. Using many small pieces can make a small room feel cluttered. A grouping of large furniture will overpower a small room. One, carefully chosen, big piece usually will work better in a small space. It provides a focal point for the room and will lend a feeling of airiness to the rest of the space. For more great ideas visit
