Decorating with beautiful objects and items that are personal to the individual or family will always add both character and a sense of a unique feel to any space. It can be the pieces of yesteryear that tell a story or from travels around the world.
The mood of the decor is influenced regardless if it be a modern home full of bold colours and statements or a more traditional character home. To have a surprise element in a treasured keepsake, piece of furniture or art, will add a conversational note. Both whimsical or theatrical touches can also give this effect.
