Interior Design Tips & Trends


Discover Layering As The Key To Designing An Inviting Space & Enjoy Special Savings on All Accessories Posted on 25 Apr 18:08 , 0 comments

Think of Your Room as an Outfit That Needs Accessorizing

So you have some furniture - maybe a sofa, a loveseat, some end tables, and a coffee table. But the room lacks personality. What do you do now? Think of your room as an outfit. An outfit needs accessories like jewelry, shoes, a scarf, or a belt to complete the look. Don't you love it when you see a woman who really knows how to put an outfit together? Well you can do the same with your home.

Layering will Add a Rich and Harmonious Touch to Your Decor

The key is to add layers. The most beautiful designs consist of layers of color and texture. Find a piece of artwork or an area rug that really speaks to you. Use that piece as inspiration for the rest of the room. Add complementary art pieces that fill your walls with color and texture.

Blooms Hermanas Watercolor Prints, Set of 2 - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

These vibrant watercolor prints would make a dramatic statement over a sofa or stacked vertically on a tall fireplace wall. The options for selection of artwork are endless, so choose pieces that make you smile.

Lighting Will Add an Additional Layer

Lamps can add so much personality while adding a glow and being functional, too. There are so many unique and beautiful lamps. Think of them as the jewelry in your room. Every end table should have a lamp on it, and where there is no table, use a floor lamp to balance the light. And they don't need to match! Use lamps that complement each other in size, color, finish, and shape.

Dinah Mushroom Gray Textured Table Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This simple but elegant table lamp will add texture and a subtle hint of color. Use lamps to add a serene or dramatic touch. They will definitely help to set the tone of the room.

Bring the Outdoors Inside with an Another Layer

Greenery and flowers add another layer and help to bring the outdoors inside. If you don't have a green thumb, think silk or preserved plants. Preserved plants are real plants that have been preserved through a special process so that they won't deteriorate. They look, feel, and smell like real plants because they are real!

Lifelike Mixed Floral Arrangement - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This eye-catching floral arrangement will add a splash of color to a coffee table or dining table. You can add punches of color or stay neutral with white flowers and greenery depending on the mood you want to create.

Adding Accessories Will Add Additional Layers

Add another layer by putting some fluffy throw pillows on your seating. Choose colors and patterns that complement the artwork or area rug that you've selected. Get some decorative photo frames, add some favorite family photos, and place them in a grouping of three or five. Don't overdo it. If you'd like to display more family photos, rotate them from time to time or get a digital photo frame.

There are lots of other types of accessories that you may include. Candleholders are great for mood lighting. Decorative boxes look beautiful on a coffee table and are a great place to stash remotes. Decorative trays are great to place on an ottoman, and bookends are perfect for holding a few special books on a console or sofa table.

Layering of Accessories to Create a Cohesive Interior Design

The photo above is the family room of one of my client projects. Notice the layering of accessories - from the artwork to the area rug, and including a decorative tray, throw pillows, floral pieces, lamps and lighting, candleholders, and framed family photos. All of these pieces work together to add a richness to the room and a balanced feeling, creating a space that is comfortable and welcoming.

Be creative, and make your selections based on what you love, always including pieces that are meaningful to you. If you need help, please visit our online home accessories boutique. I've personally selected the most amazing, unique, and beautiful pieces for your home and have included suggestions for complementary pieces.

Add A Coastal or Tropical Touch to Your Decor & Enjoy Special Savings Through April 26th Posted on 18 Apr 16:32 , 0 comments

Coastal & Tropical Design is Fresh and Clean

You don't need to live by the ocean to enjoy coastal or tropical design. Heavy design filled with intricate window treatments and ornate furnishings has been replaced with a fresh, clean style, often with coastal and tropical influences. Fresh colors like aqua, teal, cerulean blue, yellow, red, and coral work well with this style.

This week I've included suggestions on how to incorporate a coastal or tropical style into your decor. Just click on each photo for more information and an enlarged image. I hope you'll take a look at our wonderful selection of accessories and accent furniture in this beautiful style.

Add a Coastal/Tropical Touch with a New Mirror

Adding mirrors to your decor will visually enlarge your home. Adding a mirror with a Coastal or Tropical design will add a fresh touch to your decor.

Vivian Mother of Pearl Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This exquisite mirror features a mother of pearl frame. It would be a wonderful way to set the tone for your home when used in your entry or a beautiful addition to a powder room or master bath.

Add a Stunning Orchid That Will Always Look Beautiful

Lifelike White Phalaenopsis Orchid Floral Arrangement - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Florals and plants do wonders to soften your decor and bring a bit of the outdoors inside. Orchids are especially beautiful and add a tropical note to your decor. Our silk orchids look so lifelike and will never die. The stunning orchid above would be beautiful on an entry console table, or use it as a floor plant to add softness to your decor.

Lamps Can Add a Tropical or Coastal Flair

I know I talk a lot about using lamps in your decor, but it's because they add so much character and personality while adding drama and a soft glow. A lamp doesn't need to have a distinct tropical or coastal motif. Select a lamp in a sea blue or aqua hue to complement your decor.

Fluted Frosted Blue Glass Accent Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This stunning glass accent lamp will add a colorful touch to your decor. It is currently available at great savings while supplies last.

Please take a look at all of our sale items that are available until stock runs out. There are some really beautiful pieces in this collection.

Add a Piece of Accent Furniture with a Coastal Design

Adding an accent furniture piece or two with a tropical or coastal flair is a great way to create this style without overdoing it.

Reclaimed Teak Wood & Glass Console Table - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This unique console table features teak driftwood. You'll own a unique piece of art as each piece is handmade and no two are identical. Perfect for an entry, this gorgeous piece will certainly make an impression on your guests as they enter your home.

Lighting Fixtures Can Add a Tropical/Coastal Flair

Knotted Rattan Light Drum Pendant - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This stylish pendant fixture will add texture and soft lighting to your home. Use it over a dining table or in a dark corner to add a coastal flair to your decor.

Think About Adding Some Accessories

Accessories can add so much personality to your decor. There are many to choose from with a coastal/tropical flair.

Keanu Blue Heron Sculpture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

I love this blue heron sculpture. It will add a touch of a coastal flair and so much personality. Use this special piece on a table or pedestal.

Please take a look at all of our coastal & tropical home accessories. I've selected some unique and enticing pieces for you.

My favorite way to use a decorative tray is on an ottoman or coffee table. On an ottoman, the tray allows you to serve favorite drinks and snacks. A decorative tray on a coffee table is the perfect place to group some favorite accessories or small treasures.

Update Your Decor with the Newest Trends in Lighting Fixtures & Enjoy Special Savings Posted on 23 Mar 14:31 , 0 comments

Adding New Lighting Fixtures is an Easy Way to Update Your Decor

If you're looking for a way to update your decor for spring, think about changing out a lighting fixture or two. Many homes have the builder's fixtures that were included when the house was built. These are often unexciting and bland in design.

Adding a new lighting fixture allows you to let your personality shine as you select a fixture that showcases your personal taste. There are so many fabulous fixtures from which to choose. You'll not only be adding a beautiful fixture, you'll also be improving the quality and beauty of light in your home.

Below are a few of my favorite new lighting fixtures that we've recently added to our shopping site. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image to see all of the intricate detail and for more information.

Start with Your Entry or Stairway 

Take a look at your entry and stairway first. This is the first place your guests see when they enter your home. Why not greet them with a gorgeous fixture that will set the tone as they arrive?

Bede Gold Leaf 3-Light Pendant Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This exquisite pendant lighting fixture features a bright metallic gold leaf finish accented with crystal beads at the tip of each branch. This unique lighting fixture will add a beautiful touch to your entry or stairway that will make you smile when you open your front door.

If this isn't quite the look you want for your entry, we have many more lovely fixtures from which to choose.

Wall Sconces Add Drama and Accent Lighting

Think about adding a wall sconce or two if you have an area in your entry or perhaps on either side of your dining room buffet. Unless there is already wiring, this will require the services of an electrician.

Byzantine Wall Sconce - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This unique and distinctive wall sconce will add an enchanting touch to your decor. Its soft antiqued finish is complemented by a criss cross design and mesh reflector.

Looking for something a little different? We have lots of sconces from which to choose.

A New Dining Room Chandelier Will Add Unique Styling

Most dining rooms are already wired for a lighting fixture. Be sure the bottom of your chandelier is no less than 30" above your table, and no more than 36" if you have a high ceiling. Put on a dimmer, a chandelier will allow you to adjust the lighting for intimate dinner parties or rousing family get togethers.

Vitalia 6-Light Oil Rubbed Bronze Chandelier - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This gorgeous chandelier will add an eye-catching touch to your decor. I love the unique amber hand made glass. If this isn't quite the style you're looking for, we have many other chandeliers from which to choose.

If you love this styling, please take a look at all of the other fixtures in this collection.

Pendant Lights Make Kitchens Sparkle

It's just amazing what a difference it makes to add some pendant lights over a kitchen island or over a kitchen sink. Not only can you see so much better when you're preparing food, but you can also create a beautiful mood when you're entertaining guests who always seem to gather in the kitchen.

Alpena Washed Copper 1-Light Mini Pendant Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This gorgeous mini pendant will add a rich and classy touch to your decor. Copper is a trending finish, and this rich washed copper finish with burnished details makes this pendant very special.

We have lots more pendants from which to choose. Please take a look.

Change Out Your Bathroom Vanity Fixtures

Many homes still have the builder's special bathroom fixtures - the ones with a strip of plain round light bulbs. Sound familiar? Changing out your bathroom fixtures is usually an easy fix, and it will make such a difference in the quality of lighting and mood in your bathroom.

Tamworth Modern 3-Light Vanity Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add an elegant touch to your bathroom with this stunning vanity lighting fixture. A burnished silver champagne leaf finish and modern clear crystal accents are complemented by silken off white hardback shades. If you love this styling, we have other fixtures from this collection.

Brand New, Beautiful Lamps to Add a Glow to Your Decor

About a month ago I shared with you a sneak peek of some of the new lamps that we had just added to our shopping site. Now that I've returned from the Las Vegas Market, I just have to share with you some of the newest lamps that I saw while I was there, and that we've just added to our site.

Aubrey Aquamarine Contemporary Glass Table Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This chic table lamp features a graceful fluted aquamarine glass base complemented by crystal accents. This gorgeous lamp will add a sophisticated touch to your decor and just a bit of color.

I like to think of lamps as the jewelry of a room. They're one of the finishing touches that add sparkle, personality, and drama. You can completely change the ambience of a room with the addition of lighting. Lamps are the perfect way to add light and personality at the same time. 

Some of my Very Favorite New Lamps

I'm including a selection of some of our new lamps that I love the most. These lamps are by one of my favorite manufacturers. The quality is exceptional, and the designs are exquisite.

Glass lamps are extremely popular right now, and we have a fabulous selection. They come in many different styles, but all have a delicate beauty that is only possible with glass. This exquisite lamp features an ombre gray glass base with a crystal foot. The charcoal gray fabric shade adds a touch of glamour.

This cheerful contemporary glass accent lamp will add a colorful touch to your decor. The aegean blue fluted glass base features crystal accents.
