It shouldn't take a lot to make your home feel fresh. For me, it's straightening up, cleaning a bit, arranging some flowers, putting on some music and lighting a scented candle.
When accessorizing someone else's home, I like to use what the owners already have and fill in where necessary to make things a bit more stylish. These are ideas that I keep in mind.
I bought a smaller version of this for me and it's already sold out.
Leave the bowl empty or partially fill it with seasonal items like apples or pinecones.
These raffia trays are a good deal right now.
Pillow covers This is going on a leather chair.
Might as well stock up while on sale...
More Trays for a Coffee Table I picked up the round one.
These aren't on the checklist, but are a good price. We bought two of these rugs for a client...not too many left. Handwoven Striped Rug
The polka dot book (with the partial cover off) on my coffee table now is by Nancy Braithwaite: Simplicity.
I also bought a glass shadow box to store our antique opera glasses on the coffee table.
You could use these boxes (they come in different sizes) for your jewelry, or for shells like my friend, Debbie does.
Or display souvenirs from your travels, or precious objects, like vintage family photos (Kathy, like the unframed black and white photo of your dad on your console ).
Look for coordinating photo frames like mine below purchased at
Target a while ago. Check out Home Goods, too.
This was a home that we refreshed with key elements off the checklist! The vintage marble grapes were inherited from my client's parents.

The fog lifts in San Francisco in the morning and it is pretty darn glorious here right now.
Time for Chief and I to take a walk and enjoy it. Hope you are enjoying your summer!
