{Interior Design} Tips for using Home Accents in your Cottage

Our Boat House has LOTS of experience with decorating and these sisters are eager to assist you in bringing your beach cottage accents together in a cohesive way.

“Be sure to group your home accessories in odd numbers and in varying sizes … in three’s, five’s, seven’s etc. Place the items in high, medium and low–biggest to lowest arrangement –within an imaginary triangle.

Odd numbering is more aesthetically pleasing.  Each piece stands out –making it well-organized.

On the contrary, even number groupings, such as a pair or a group of four, tend to make the group look over-decorated and leave a cluttered feel to the area.”
