Design Trend Wednesday: Gems and Geodes Accents

Gems and Geodes Accents add a little sparkle, pizzazz, and just a touch of magic to bring a space together. They make a wonderful accent piece, statement piece or center piece, which is why they are so easy to place perfectly around your homes. You don’t have to necessarily go with physical crystals but you can even use it as a print like we did with accent pillows.

Design Trend Wednesday: Large Scale Lighting

Go for over scale light fixtures especially in the dining room. They act as a focal point and ground the space at the same time. Toying with scale is a great way to add visual interest and draw attention away from negative elements, especially in a smaller space. To keep the look from becoming extreme, choose simple forms and designs.

Design Trend Wednesday: Metallic Accents

The right metallic touch can add warm sophistication and ageless appeal to a space. Metallic Accents are all the rage at the moment, from shiny gold metal shelving to silver floor lamps to eccentric bronze end tables. Metallic accents are a great way to add a bit of glam and spice, and are great attention drawers and conversation starters. Right now we’re really into gold!
