Below is an example from a recent client that used my tips to create the look that truly spoke to their personal style.
Beautiful, isn’t it!? She wanted a space that she could look out on while working from home that felt comforting, inviting, and peaceful. That’s incredibly important, especially in current times.
As for what NOT to do:
Don’t buy items because they’re “trendy” when they’re not your style
Don’t overload the table with decor – after all, it’s still a table that you need to be functional (strike the balance between decor & function)
Don’t purchase items that don’t match the scale of your table. If you’re out shopping, have your table measurements, or a paper cut to the size so you can create a layout on top of it if necessary. Balance your proportions.
