Finding The Focal Point In Your Home Office

March 3, 2016

When you walk into a room, the first thing that catches your eye is usually considered your focal point. The wow of the room. When you are decorating an office, how can you arrange a focal point to make the room a home run in design?

An easy trick I’ve learned is  to stand in the doorway of the room and pretend it is a bedroom. Now where would you put the bed to make it your focal point? That is where you should be starting your room design. That wall is where you will look when you walk in, so that is where you make your prettiest wall!

Mixing Metallics In Home Decor

November 19, 2015

A reader friend recently wrote me asking,

“Hi Kelly,

Hey when you were at market, did they talk about using mixed metals being trendy still?  I know some people think it’s awful; some think it’s OK. Personally, I think if done well, it’ll work.”

Great question! From what I saw at Highpoint here, mixing gold and silver together is still very much on trend!

I think mixing metallics in home decorating will continue for quite a while. It’s fun and a lot less stuffy than all gold or silver in a space!:

Mixing different finishes is encouraged because it gives the room movement and texture instead of looking flat:

So, you were correct my friend! It might not be for everyone, but it is still very much on trend. I think it adds interest and a more layered look in a room, don’t you agree?:

What do you think everyone? Love it or Lose it? If you want to introduce in your home, start with small accessories. Just do not go over the top! Easy with the bling.

Thanks for the great question Connie!
