It's been a while since I've shared one of my projects with you. But to tell you the truth I've been so swamped with deadlines that I hadn't had a chance to download any of my photos. In this particular project I had to stage a two-bedroom model apartment for a new building in Brooklyn. They wanted it to look fresh and contemporary to appeal to the new trendy crowd moving into this hot neighborhood. This kind of project is lots of fun but also rather hectic because of the short amount of time I have to put it together — from purchasing to installation I only have a few weeks. To keep it simple and sophisticated I decided to go for a soft and neutral palette with just a few splashes of color to add personality. I mixed and matched furnishings from a couple of styles that I knew would complete my original design. But for me, accessories are one of the most important details to bring life to any home. Since time was of essence, I had to buy various home accessories online which helped immensely at the end. The key is to find the right objects that will complement the other pieces of the room. From artwork to throw pillows, each accessory should add to the aesthetic value of your home. So have fun when choosing them but never forget they should always represent who you are.
