Here are the top 5 must have accessories to decorate your space. Whether new or redecorating, these accessories will bring a new feel to any room.
These accessories can be purchased from any store or for those of you that are watching your budgets be sure to check out your local second-hand stores, thrift stores or Goodwill. What one person thinks is junk; is another persons treasure.

1.) Mirrors~ a mirror will compliment any rooms decor and add light accents.

2.) Books~ add a 2-3 books to an end table. Books can be covered in decorative papers or fabrics to fit your lifestyle or personality.

3.) Nature items~ be sure to look outside your windows or while you are out on a walk for items that will compliment your home. Flowers, twigs or maybe even an old birds nest that has fallen out of a tree.

4.) Silver frames~ rather than have all your frames in different colors or styles, use silver ones to give your home clean lines. You can also change out the silvers around the home to mix up the styles every so months for different looks.

5.) Original art work or sculptures~ when your kids bring home their artwork from school, don’t put it in a drawer, put it in a silver frame and hang it on the wall or on a table. Not everything need be a Picasso or cost thousands of dollars for it to be considered art.

Remember, your home is representation of you and your lifestyle. Make it comfy for you to live in and enjoyable for your guests to come to.

R U S T

So if you are looking to redecorate your home, your wardrobe or even your choice for jewelry fashion be sure to keep this tidbit in mind.

Can’t afford to do a whole redesign of a room or wardrobe?  Let’s address some of these things.

~ Redecorating: Don’t think you have to completely redo a room to make it up to date in the fashion world.  Just adding a  throw blanket to a corner of a chair or couch and maybe toss a couple throw pillows with it.  Do some accent painting with stencils with the fashion color, but be careful that you don’t OVER DO IT with how much stenciling you do, less is more and depending on the style can be a very elegant look as well.  Add an end table in the new color of the year!  This will bring in that splash around the room and make some great conversation pieces!  On a very restricted budget, then shop at a thrift store or goodwill and look for accent pieces in the new color.  Maybe a vase or picture frame.   You also can ALWAYS take a piece of furniture and repaint or recushion the chair to include the lasted fashion trend!

~Wardrobe: We all know it took us years to build the collection of clothing that we have in our closets now.  So to say well, donate them all and start over is not only feasible, but VERY unrealistic in the economy we are in today.  Why not shop an up scale second-hand store and see if you can’t find and accent piece to give you that splash of color to liven your current wardrobe up?  Everything from a simple scarves that can be worn many different ways is a great start.  Not sure about how to get create all those great styles, look up different ways on the internet.  Want to do something a little more, how about a nice quality blazer or new coat? Even a new pair of shoes can change the whole look of the same outfit to a new exciting & fashionable style.

~Jewelry: Make this one count! With styles as they are now, many of the designers are creating jewelry that combines many different colors, so this mean you can buy ONE piece and it can go with lots of different outfits but look completely different with each.

So when you are feeling a little drab and looking for THE SPIRITS TO MOVE you into the new fashion trend, remember RUST!
