Elements Of Style

Personal panache

Whether it’s a colorful pillow or a pair of sassy shoes, we all like to surround ourselves with pretty things. The rules for decorating your abode are not dissimilar from putting together a stunner of an outfit. A mix of texture and pattern, colors that complement, and a great accent piece (or two) are all you need. Take a moment to be inspired by your surroundings and tap into your fashion feng shui.

Accent pieces can really tie a room – or an outfit – together. Perk up your basics with a pop of color.
