Update any room in your home with small touches inspired by the Tahoe Dream Home.

TIPS FOR ACCESSORIZING YOUR HOME

  • Invest in very durable finishes for your furniture. The last thing you want, especially if you have a family, is to be telling your kids they can't sit on anything.

  • For intimacy in a room add fluffy pillows, big warm blankets, candles and flowers on the table

  • Lighting, like paint, is a great way to freshen a room without a whole lot of change.

  • The kitchen is a nice place to slightly accessorize, while also keeping it a very usable space. Consider incorporating plants, cooking oils, fruit and cookbooks on the counter sparingly.

  • Plants throughout the house are always a good idea.
ACCESSORY TRENDS
  • Large sculptural pieces in the bedroom

  • Large conversational pieces for the living room

  • Use Red for a pop of color

  • White is excellent in a darker room. It really draws your eye.

  • Accessorizing a coffee table with tea cups or other unusual personal items, as well as books and low plants
