CURATING YOUR SPACE- FROM ANTIQUE SHOP TREASURES TO INSTA WORTHY ACCESSORIES
It’s the accessories that make a house a home, elevating spaces from blank canvas to emporiums of personality. Whether adorning console tables or decadently covered walls, an eclectic blend of antique shop treasures and rediscovered heirlooms will build on a curator’s theme, adding interest at every turn.
Eye catching accessories undoubtably create Insta worthy stories, especially when they’re used in a never-been-seen-before way. Being the first to discover up and coming designers is a guaranteed leapfrog towards interior superstardom. Our handmade clay ear hooks by French designer Lola Mayeras are an excellent example – full of charisma, it’s impossible to look at them without raising a smile.
FROM THE STYLIST
“When thinking about which accessories to choose, it’s sometimes best to start small”, says Liberty, Archive by Sanderson Design stylist. “But most importantly, choose accessories you love. They don’t have to match and they don’t have to be colour coordinated, but they do need to make you happy. Our sky blue laundry vase is a great example. Filled with feather plumages and joyous blooms, it adds a unique twist to this kitchen scheme.”
More is always more
Another key factor is the size of your room. If you’re fortunate enough to have tall ceilings, amplify their full potential with large, leafy plants. If your space is more compact, arrange accessories in height order for maximum impact, or group a collection of framed artworks in varying sizes. One thing’s for sure – more is always more! And we can’t get enough of their positive vibes!
Throughout our shoot, Liberty has teamed a mix of flea market finds with favourite vintage pieces sourced from the Sunbury Antique Market, Ebay and Etsy. Featuring 1980’s martini glasses, wiggle vases and a phenomenal fruit bowl swan, she’s created a scheme that surprises and delights.
When thinking about your own home, remember that it’s the accessories that lift your scheme, taking a beautiful interior to something next level. Layered fabrics are a great way to add texture, so take a look at the Archive by Sanderson Design cushions page and explore our range of iconic patterns and incredible colour. Don’t spread your accessories too thinly though or they’ll lose their impact. Be confident, be bold and remember to only chose items that you love.
