Accessorizing Do's and Don'ts

Hi friends,

Today, I am back with another installment in the Do's and Don'ts series. I thought it was time to take a critical look at styling and decor accessories. There are some great examples across the blogosphere of what to do and things to absolutely avoid (at least according to my humble opinion).

So let's take a look shall we

First up, DON'T use too many decor accessories when styling your mantel like this:

DO try to group accessories in three's. It's visually appealing like this lovely mantel styling from The Lilypad Cottage:

Next, DON'T keep guilty clutter around. You don't have to hang onto things that you don't truly love just because someone gave them you to you. That's what thrift stores are for. Your trash is someone else's treasure! Look closely at this don't - yes that is a demon pitcher

DO keep a well curated collection of decor items like this:

DON'T use too much of one color for your accessories like this:

DO repeat key colors in different ways to make a room seem cohesive (3 is always good)

And that's it for this installment of Do's and Don'ts. Agree / Disagree? Let me know :)

I leave you today with this amusing item:

Thanks for stopping by!
