This Leonardo de Vinci quote perfectly sums up my decorating philosophy “Simplicity is the Ultimate Form of Sophistication.” Keep rooms simple with a few beautiful unique pieces paired with comfortable clean lined furniture. When adding on a room’s finishing accents, we often clutter our rooms with too many accessories forgetting that less is more.
Here are some tips for keeping rooms simple:
- Keep the coffee table neat and clean with a few arranged objects that become the
central attraction of the table. Some of my favorites include a unique tray or a stack
of design books topped with a simple glass vase or candle.
- Use throw pillows for a pop of color but make sure to not over do the pillows. As
much as I love pillows, too many can make the sofa look messy and uninviting for
guests to sit and enjoy.
- Instead of using overgrown houseplants, use a delicate succulent or orchid in a
distinctive vase to brighten up your room. A Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree in a beautiful basket
can also spruce up a dreary corner.
- Highlight your mantle or walls with a stunning piece of art or a striking mirror to
create a focal point for the room. Avoid too many competing wall hangings or pieces
that are not a correct scale for the space.
