Style Secret: Minimal Accessories
Remember how we said "less is more?" Eschew eclectic groupings, fussy finds and bric-a-brac; keep accessories simple, few and well-chosen. In this pared-down arrangement, every piece adds drama without detracting from the streamlined feel.
But also consider... Collectors, take heart: You're not doomed to a series of garage sales. While this isn't the setting for the family Staffordshire, simple objects that feel of a piece — such as white porcelain vases or glass fishing-net floats — fall in step with the aesthetic. Arrange them in a tight, uniform manner that enhances the space rather than detracting from it. Bookshelves should be filled with hardbacks; paperbacks are better suited for traditional rooms.
