Lots of Beautiful New Mirrors to Create the Illusion of a More Spacious Home

Foliage Round Silver Leaf Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Using mirrors is one of my favorite ways to lighten and brighten a home interior. Mirrors reflect light into a space to visually expand and enliven the decor.

Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and more information.

Please take a look at our stunning collection of round mirrors to enhance your decor. 

Uniquely Shaped Mirrors are a Popular New Trend

This striking large scale mirror features thick iron construction with a hand forged three-dimensional design finished in a rustic aged black with subtle silver highlights and a gray patina wash. You can place it over a low chest or bench in an entry or hang it by itself on a wall.

The powder room is often used by guests, and they will surely notice a mirror with a unique and stylish frame. Other bathrooms in your home will also benefit from the use of framed mirrors. The function of a mirror in a bathroom is to accurately show your reflection. Why not use that mirror to create a statement at the same time?

Discover Layering as the Key to Designing an Inviting Space Posted on 10 Jul 13:06 , 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 of Accessories to Create a Cohesive Interior Design

The key is to add layers. The most beautiful designs consist of layers of color and texture as shown in the photo above.

Layering will Add a Rich and Harmonious Touch to Your Decor

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.

Blue Waterfall Hand Painted Abstract Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This gorgeous hand painted artwork would make a beautiful statement above a fireplace mantel or a buffet.

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.

Sinuous Wavy Steel Mesh Table Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

I love this brand new table lamp. Its unique design will add texture and a beautiful glow. 

Bring the Outdoors Inside with 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 Hydrangea Floral Arrangement - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This lifelike floral arrangement of hydrangeas would be a beautiful addition to a coffee table, dining table, or a buffet.

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.

Zinnia Floral Decorative Square Throw Pillow - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This colorful throw pillow will add a vibrant touch to your home. Use it in conjunction with other pillows on a sofa, loveseat, chair, or bed.

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.

Plan Now to Add Some Unique Accent Pieces to Your Decor

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.

Please take a look at our entire selection of home accents on our online boutique, Innovations Designer Home DecorThere are so many wonderful pieces from which to choose.

Bringing the outdoors in creates a flow between your home and the world beyond.

Add Some Greenery & Flowers

Nothing softens a room and brings the outdoors inside like the addition of plants and greenery to your home.

A great way to connect your decor to the outdoors is to add a rustic accent furniture piece to your home.

Bring the Beach Home with a Coastal or Tropical Design Posted on 24 Apr 12:11 , 0 comments

Add a Touch of the Beach to Your Decor

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh sea air or wiggling your toes in the sand at the beach? Well, you don't need to live by the ocean to enjoy coastal or tropical design. Ornate and heavy furnishings have been replaced by a lighter style with a fresh touch, often with coastal and tropical influences. Fresh colors like aqua, teal, cerulean blue, yellow, red, and coral work well with these styles.

This week I've included some of my favorite new coastal and tropical pieces. I hope you'll take a look at our wonderful selection of accessories and accent furniture in these beautiful styles.

Some of My Favorite New Coastal & Tropical Accent Pieces

Below are some of my favorite new coastal and tropical pieces. Please click on each photo for a zoomable image and a more complete description.

Our stunning lifelike orchids will have your guests thinking that you have an incredible way with plants. This colorful silk orchid will add a tropical feeling to your decor. I always add plants and florals to my client designs. High quality silk arrangements like the one above will add color and softness to your decor for many years to come.

Colorful Fresh Looks for Spring - Free Shipping & Special Savings Posted on 03 Apr 12:14 , 0 comments

Spring is in the Air

Although parts of the country are still blanketed in snow, it won't be long before everyone in the US gets to enjoy a beautiful spring season, as we are currently in southern California. I love this time of year. Leaves are filling out the trees, flowers are blooming, and there's a fresh scent of spring in the air. It's time to bring some of this freshness into your home after the long winter season.

Add Some Color to Your Decor with Lifelike Florals

Nothing adds the feeling of spring quite like the freshness and scent of spring flowers. I love fresh flowers, but sometimes it's hard to keep them looking beautiful for very long, and replacing them often gets expensive.
