1. Use Photos. Add your favorite photos of family and friends, but streamline your picture frames. Go for variations of a classic silver frame.
  2. Don’t be afraid of color. Add a cashmere throw in your favorite color. It brings vibrancy and luxury to any space.
  3. Mix and match. Never stick to a “color scheme.” Instead, use what you love. Have your grandmother’s fur coat or your favorite vintage rug made into a pillow. Vintage textiles go with just about anything and they add an interesting layer.
  4. Incorporate treasures from your travels. It gives your home a unique and interesting appeal.
  5. When in doubt, keep the walls neutral. Go for a pale, warm gray or a true ivory. Let your furniture, accessories and art speak for themselves.
