The accent table is perhaps the most genius of of home decor pieces.

A contemporary spot piece such as a small gold accent table(s) elegantly lends a modern twist to a predominately classic interior.

If you are fortunate enough to have access to the wonderful world of antiques stores, auctions and flea markets, keep an eye out for a diamond in the rough settee.

A stunning French settee at an equally stunning price reupholstered in the designer fabric of your choice could become a custom focal point piece to DIY for.

A look-see of this decorating show and tell counted as the second time in one day my decorating eye crossed paths with orange drapes- reason enough to give a second thought to changing the color of the drapes in the den.

Antiques, lanterns, ceiling medallions, dupioni silk drapes, decorative objects d’art, ornamental accents, chandeliers dripping in crystal prisms, decorative mirrors and frames scrolled in gold leaf- the New Orleans influence comes home through signature style home decor pieces.
