Bottom line

When accessorizing a space that has already been designed, the most basic design principles are involved. These principles include the client’s personal story and consider scale, proportion, texture and balance.

The elements and principles of design allow a home owner to create excitement using small items such as tables, lamps and simple design accessories. Accessorizing is one way that designers can create that truly exceptional experience for their clients. At CHD, we are fortunate to have access to an extremely wide array of design accessories, and can source anything to fit the client’s needs.

As a general rule, 15 to 30 percent of your home furnishing budget is often devoted to accessories.

The time one spends selecting the perfect sofa or coffee table will not matter unless the accessories are a perfect complement to your style.

Just remember, accents are one of the primary ways one expresses themselves, so it is important to take the time to pick the right pieces.
