Expert Styling

i definitely need to brush up on my styling! it's such a crucial part of putting the finishing touches on a space and one of the first things i notice when looking at a new room. how pretty are these little vignettes?
maximalist styling, pretty pink flowers, and a little lacquer or shine... i'm taking notes!

what are your styling tricks?

I'm a minimalist, no clutter! Less dust that way. :) I thought that would be easier to decorate with less, but it's a little difficult to make it look like you've decorated without it looking too sparse.

I think I need to take notes too. I always see people's lovely, messy looking but totally on purpose little displays and wonder why I can never get mine to look like that. I have the same problem as Sweet Southern Prep mentioned, I don't like clutter so my spaces often end up looking really bare.

I need major styling help, AND major photography lessons...I guess practice makes perfect though! Which I am sure you will get plenty of working for the king of home accessories!

I usually adhere to a bit of feng shui and stick to odd groupings(mostly in threes). I don't like clutter, but i have a ton of accessories that i change around to create a different look/vignette. I also like to layer textures and play around with the same colour in different tones etc.

I wish I had some! I just tinker until it "looks right". Currently tinkering with the shelves on my new built ins. Not quite happy with them yet though.

I like the first one because it looks haphazard but still gorgeous.

Decorative Items that are too neat and orderly would just never work in my world.

yeah styling is an art! I am far from mastering it... but i guess i go for following my intuition somehow things get arranged nicely that way

I always love to see how designers put vignettes together. The first image is one of my all time favorites. xx

All these special touches are so lovely! I have a hard time finding those elements that complete a room! I have a lot to learn in terms of styling a room (I guess I'll just stick to styling myself for now!!)

Oh wow, another incredible post! Love all of these images. My styling tricks are pretty simple, I love groups of similar items and/or colours and like them to be real and personal rather than anything too contrived.

All of this makes me happy! Loving no 2 - the colours, composition and light are divine! A picture I'd like to crawl into right now!

Shelter said...

honestly for photos..it's about layering color, texture, pattern..the more you layer, the better it looks...! good luck.

it really is all about the details isn't it - especially when the casual is in fact intentional and artful. If only my husband wouldn't consider layers to be clutter!
