Imagine a blank sheet of paper; now imagine a few marks of color or design either self-created or that capture your passions on the paper. Which is more appealing to the eye? If you said that the sheet of paper displaying your type of creativity, then you are more than likely passionate about designs and all types of accessories that provide design personality. Those who remain neutral or desire the blank canvas, most often have no concern yet may not be aware of just how much these things play a role in your lives. Given that all types of accessories are mandatory in life, let’s discuss the ways we can utilize them to our advantage.
Foremost, let’s transfer the blank canvas theory over to Fashion. We need to view our clothing as just that, a blank canvas waiting to be decorated. The next time you opt for the “little black dress”, as we all know will forever remain a constant in the fashion world; or the plain black button up, make sure to decorate that canvas. This can be done with a colorful scarf, which I believe can be worn any time of the season, however, for most it is appropriate due to current cold weather. The great thing about scarves is that there are a number of different ways that they can be worn. Taking advantage of this versatility will not only redefine the dress, but assist in the transformation of a daily wardrobe to night on the town attire.
In addition to clothing whether man or woman, we may be unaware that as humans who live and breathe design and accessories on a daily basis, each are utilized and experienced regularly in our lives. From the painting hanging on the wall above the pillows displayed on the sofas in the waiting room of our Doctor’s office soothing our nerves, to the way the booths are upholstered at that favorite restaurant stimulating our appetite; we are surrounded by colors, designs and shapes that affect our moods and emotions subconsciously. For those of us possessing a passion for fashion or interior design, these details may be noticed on a higher level or take more of an immense affect on our every day lives.
Prior, we referenced the blank sheet of paper and plain black dress, let us now place ourselves in a room with plain white walls; how do we feel? Is this the moment when we realize that we have great appreciation for those photographs that hang in our place of work that accent the painted walls surrounding provoking creativity? For those of us that work outside, each and every leaf on each and every tree, as well as every cloud in the sky and the way the sun shines through them are all nature’s accessories once more influencing our souls.
Again, though a room is furnished, does not mean it is no longer a blank canvas post furnishing. Just as I would recommend the utilization of a bracelet or watch resembling the scarf to tie in the attire as a whole; the same applies when designing or decorating a room. We reference accessories like pillows, lamps, pictures, mirrors, curtains, wallpaper, wall coverings, rugs and more to provide the finishing touches of the space. The accessories must be chosen very carefully and with much thought; as they can make or break a design as well customize a room for everyday use and special events.
Some tips from livingroomdecoratingideas.com:
“The easiest way to narrow your selection and choose the perfect pillow is to consider the elements of design – texture, shape and color.”
Wakiki Royal – Futura Interiors
“Rugs and carpets can change the look of your entire living room. Whether your whole room is covered by a carpet or just a corner of your room the central portion of your room by a rug, the entire look of the room is enhanced. Carpets and Rugs have always played an indispensable role in giving our homes perfect make overs.”
Pictures and Paintings
“Pictures and paintings add a point of interest to any room or wall space, and give you the opportunity to express your personality and taste – whilst giving your home its own stamp of individuality.”
“Lamps and Lamp Shades are great decorative accents in your living room. Lamps are a great way to enliven and brighten up your space. Lamps can be floor lamps or table lamps. In addition to being attractive, lamps are portable which allow you to rearrange your space at will until you find the right arrangement. Floor lamps are just perfect beside a reclining chair or a couch or for simply brightening up a dark corner in your living room.”
“Living room is generally the biggest room in a home with large windows. Moreover there are very less and bulky things covering the wall. Therefore the need of living room curtains from the decoration point of view is must. You can take the full advantage of fabric as it will be very beautifully shown.”
“Living room shelves are common today. When you have a house, then you would want to have a very good place and a living room to make things look better. You would also want to install various things and when you do that, you would realize that you have done the best thing in life.” “Decorate your living room with style by adding decorative wall shelves.”
Just as the black dress would stand alone as a black dress, so would this living room with the white couch and end tables, however, when accessories are embraced in both aspects of life, it makes things that much more marvelous.
