"It's the finishing touches that add the
wow factor and take any room from
ordinaire to extra-ordinaire."
We have a focus instore at Small Acorns at the moment which centres around finishing touches.
All those little details which add expression and personality to a room, and the things that
make it yours and yours alone - after all when you decorate your own home, it should be about
creating spaces that reflect you, your way of living, and your personality.
The impact that is achieved by adding these flourishes of personality is like the icing on the cake.
These are some of our favourite ways to avoid the prescriptive catalogue look...
Do you have some favourite finishing touches?
I asked my team, and we all decided that flowers were the flourish we
turned to the most. They are that little detail that brings a room to life.
Even the most dull decor is perked up by the natural verve that flowers have.
I guess it depends upon your personal style, but I know for me that my home is also
very much about me, my family, and the things we love.
So for me that means my treasures and collected objects, beautiful fabrics,
a mix of second-hand vintage and contemporary new furniture, all mixed with colour and a lot of creative license!
