Accessories: Make It or Break It

At The Well Appointed House we are constantly getting emails for our customers asking for additional decorative inspiration to go with their favorite statement pieces they recently purchased from the site. Recently, while working on such a request from a client, I went back to the current issue of Lonny Magazine and looked at a eclectic home designed by Betsy Burnham.

Burnham uses a strict color scheme throughout the home yet it is never stogy or dull. She uses classic furniture and lets her accessories do all the talking, especially in the family room. Love the look? Take a look at some products from The Well Appointed House.
The tortoise chandelier Burnham used in the sitting room above is chic, stylish and looks a lot like our Square Capiz Chandlier, a lighter version of the one pictured.
We love the “Hermes” inspired tray seated on the table and we can special order that tray for customers upon request. We love this tray, and other like it, because not only do they look sharp on a table but they can also be placed in a tray stand making a great side table or coffee table for a small space.
A pop of animal print is always a welcomed addition to any space, and looks especially sharp in this particular room. Our leopard faux bamboo ottoman is great because it has the best of everything: a traditional shape, some outrageous color and then a taste of chinoiserie undertones.
Short, white flowers are so modern, crisp and fresh (even when they aren’t real!). This amaryllis arrangement would look great in the above space. There major difference between the living room and bedroom was that Burnham employed more color in the furniture and the accessories. The bright blue headboard looks so current with the orange lacquered furniture.
Our Jonathan Adler Woodhouse Headboard would fit right into that bedroom, especially with Adler’s Lacquer Tray Table.
Burnham left the reader’s of Lonny with 5 simple tips on how to achieve her signature look. Here they are:
