Decorating Dilemmas is a weekly column in which our stylists answer your design questions, so you can tackle your home decorating project with complete confidence.
Dear How to Decorate,
This room needs help! I need a rug, art, and accessories to pull it together. My sofa is charcoal, and the chairs are brown leather.
We think we have a few suggestions to help you finish your room, because let’s face it, it’s the finishing touches that make a room work. We chose a new rug, our Sheridan Rug, which will provide a pop of color and texture into the room. For the windows, our Greek Key Panels in natural will soften the look of the windows.
To pull more light into the room, we would add maybe five assorted Alastair Convex Mirrors to the wall above the sofa. You can rehang your Chicago print on another wall or above the fireplace.
We do think adding a few accents can really help to finish a room. As far as accessories, try placing only the things you really want to surround yourself with. When you surround yourself with the things you love, your room will take on a life of its own, and you will always love it!
