Reader Comments on Adding Accents to Their Home

Open House: What Room Do You Love to Accessorize?

After the big renovations are done in a home, and all of the housecleaning has been accomplished, the real fun begins: accessorizing! Most of my design-savvy friends adore decking out their homes with cute accents and accessories and creating pretty vignettes around their homes. Accents are like jewelry for the home — a finishing touch that can take something from simply pretty to absolutely spectacular. (Speaking of creating vignettes, have you entered our Lovely Little Vignettes contest?)

In my home, I love to create lovely little vignettes in the smaller spaces. Forget the living room and master bedroom, I'm all about the entry and bathroom. I love creating a vignette on the console table that creates a welcoming ambiance for visitors. In the bathroom, a fresh bouquet of flowers, accompanied by an antique hand mirror, some handmade soaps, and a few favorite stones from the ocean, can create a nature-inspired vignette.

Tell me, what room is your favorite for adding accents and accessories to?
