Day 121: Accents With Personality!

by MJ Gourd


What a great follow up to post 120; The Neutral Zone...Accents With Personality! Accents, accessories, tchotchkes, all of the above, can be what takes a room from meh, to memorable and marvelous. Whether it's a few colorful pillows, a set of standout lamps, or a stellar piece of artwork, inserting hints of color, patterns and pizazz into a room through accessories is a great way to enliven, and personalize, your Happy Home. Another perk? Since these are generally low-commitment, low(er) cost, pieces, they are easy to change with the mood, season, or company!

This grand living room's neutral palette is brought to life with just a few throw pillows. Not only do they pop, but notice how they bring out the subtle reds in the rug and warm up the stone fireplace.
