I am hoping to fill this blog with simple projects and ideas on how to accessorize a room using materials found around the home with minimum cost and minimal effort. I have catagorized my projects into various room styles to help you decide upon and create your desired style in any room. I have described these styles for you in simple terms on the KIS Guide to Room Themes! page and will add to this as I continue to blog.
Hope you enjoy my blog and let me know what you think! SJ
Below is a list of themes of room decor and their common features.
Remember that simply selecting one or two elements of a style (often in the accessories you choose for a room) can sometimes be as effective as being a slave to a certain style in every piece of furniture in the room!
1. The Romantic Style:
Colours: Soft pinks, black, cream, brown, white.
Wood Shades: Most wood types.
Shapes and Patterns: Floral, paisley, flowing lines and curves.
