Accessories are like the jewelry of your home. They are the finishing touches to a great outfit and looking for accessories for your new home in Pittsburgh will take time. The goal is to be as efficient and resourceful as possible, while trying to get the most bang for your buck. If you have not done a lot of accessory shopping or purchasing, you have hopefully allowed enough for them in your design budget. You can mix high and low end design and still spend a good chunk of your overall decorating budget and not have everything that you need. Here are some tips for making the most out of your accessory budget for your Parry home.
List: Make a list of where you plan to go and shop. Write down all the showrooms and shops that you love. Don’t plan on buying everything at one location; it’s never that easy. You want your Parry home to look collected over time, not like you purchased right off the showroom floor. Your personality will not be found in that.
Location: Once you have made your list of stores, categorize them by location or part of town. You will be amazed at what you can find if you explore shops outside of your usual destination.
Photos: Take photos with you of the rooms of your Parry home to reference back to. This will help you remember exactly what you are looking for and keep you on track. There are so many options and things to pick from; you want to make sure they will work in your new home. Pulling out your photos will help you during your buying decisions. If you want, you can sketch ideas right on your photos as you go along.
Inspiration: Take photos of things that you would love to have in your home. Bring along paint chips or fabric swatches if you have them. The options are endless so the more you can prepare yourself the more successful you will be when you get everything back to your Parry home.
Balance: Remember to balance color in the rooms of your Parry home, it is important to the success of the room. If you have a little blue on your bookcase, add some blue to the other side of the room.
Purchasing accessories for your home may require that you purchase more than you think you will need. You don’t always know in the store if the blue tray will look better or the red tray. It is hard to judge accessories without all of the other final pieces in your home. That is the best way to narrow down the accessories that you want in your Parry home.
