InWhen refurnishing a room the end result can often be spoilt by adding the WRONG ACCESSORIES - so many mistakes are made at this stage...either
because there are too many or too few accessories - getting the BALANCE just right is not as easy as it seems. So, in this SKETCHBOOK, we show some room sets with and without accessories – and explain how to group your accessories so as to make more of a statement.
We hope you enjoy some of the ideas and that they prove helpful when placing your accessories - when you manage to create a certain cosiness to a family room or the right kind of elegance to a formal living room by adding the RIGHT ACCESSORY then you are well on the way to a perfect room setting...
