DECORATING GOLD

While it’s easy to be distracted by work, school and raising a family, paying attention to the details in your house is what makes it feel like home.  Adding in all the little things that layer warmth helps create a space that says “come sit for a while” rather than “walk on by!”  We were recently asked to help add those very details to this new home in Bull Valley, IL.

While an existing upholstered sectional and large artwork easily anchored this living room space, the missing things make the room feel like an afterthought rather than the first thing you’d want people to see when they walk in your home.

After determining our budget during the initial consultation, we went to work sourcing the missing occasional tables and chair to complete the conversation group.  After angling the sectional to take advantage of the large space, we added occasional tables from Pier 1 and an armchair from HomeGoods.  Next, we built off the colors in the dramatic, paneled artwork by blending more accents of gold and gray in the new throw & pillows, gilded lamps, silk window treatments, accessories and rug to unify the entire space.

The end result is a inviting space that feels as warm as the gold accents it boasts.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… the devil is always in the details.  And that couldn’t be more true when it comes to decorating your home.  Taking the time to finish a room with the details that might be missing is the easiest way to change the entire look and feel of your home.  The results will be golden.
