Shopping on Saturday

Accessories are my favorite part of the decorating process. More than any other element they inject personality into a home and make a room come to life. What defines your own style is not only the character of the pieces you collect, but how you live with and display them. My tastes run along the more traditional route, but I love interesting and quirky accessories. A room void of accessories is equivalent to cleaning your house and not making the beds, it just looks unfinished.

darling, you really have a knack for finding these little treasure troves. Do yourself a favor and don't tell everyone where you're out scouting these lovely finds!

And I agree, every room needs a bit of whimsy to make it 'just right'
