Want a New Look for Fall? Decorate with Accessories!

By Penny Baldwin-French on Thu, Aug 24, 2017 @ 12:09 PM

Decorating with accessories is a terrific way to give your home a little lift - without breaking the bank!

Any designer will tell you that rugs, art, sculptures, throw pillows and blankets can have a considerable influence. The trick is knowing how to use them.

Look for unique pieces. You're unique - reflect that in your personal environment.
