New Year, Fresh Start
January 18, 2017
As we ease into the New Year, many of our dear customers have shared their wish to freshen up their homes, although they are not quite sure where to start. The good news is that it is not as overwhelming as it may seem. Begin with one room at a time, and think about what you really love. It is amazing the transformation that comes with adding some beautifully textured throw pillows, a new piece of art with pops of color, a chic pair of side tables or a console adorned with elegant lighting. Simply rearranging furniture brings new life to a room, and you will often instinctively know what is missing.
Small details also come into play in giving special touches to a home, and incorporating accessories are an easy way to update and keep it looking fresh. Try fine tuning cocktail tables, vanities and guest rooms with beautiful trays and picture frames (Aerin accessories are always G&G favorites), coffee table books that you love, scented candles and fresh flowers in pretty vases. Even something as simple as an Hermes Mosaique square plate on a bedside table or vanity for jewelry can be both fabulous and functional.
A friend who stopped by the store last week shared some lovely advice that she follows: invest in what you touch. Whether it is luxurious bedding, beautiful porcelain for sipping hot tea, a sensational velvet chaise lounge for reading, or a plush rug beneath your feet, treat yourself to the things you enjoy and you will spend your days happy. Of course, G&G Interiors is always here to help!
