Homework Assignment- Instant Gratification

by Melanie, September 3, 2010
Reinvent a space in a single afternoon with quick changes that will achieve a big impact. First, try placing a piece of art or mirror above a chest or console. This will anchor the wall and create an intimate vignette. Next, add a few accessories. Try mixing sculptures, picture frames, lamps or candles with varying colors to personalize your new vignette. Use accessories of different heights to create an interesting variety of levels on the chest. Arranging a tall lamp, sculpture and flowers will form depth and add interest to the space.

Here is an example of creating an interesting vignette in an outdoor space. Our favorite fall trend is decorating with warm textures. The ornate mirror, decorative balls and the console’s rustic finish add the perfect amount of texture and warmth to this eclectic outdoor look.

Adding a colorful flower arrangement is the ultimate way to instantly gratify your design needs! Try a simple arrangement that will bring out the colors in your room. We love how the yellow tulips echo the yellow in the accent pillow on the bright orange chair. Flowers will instantly add brightness to your space… and make you feel happy too!

Try decorating for fall with elements you find outdoors. This is an easy way to instantly transform a room in a few hours and it won’t put a huge dent in your wallet! Try using branches or a stalky flower for a tall arrangement on a chest or console. This will add height to your vignette and it will also add a perfect touch of nature to your room.

A grouping of pumpkins make a warm and inviting table setting and also creates a country chic look in your home that is so appropriate for the fall season.
