Redesign Finishing Touches

A decorative or handsome tray placed on an ottoman or bed. Fill it with things that relate to the room.

Bed: Open book, pair of glasses, bud vase with rose, potpourri in a decorative bowl, decorative handtowels.

Ottoman in the Den: Pens and pencils in a decorative holder, some monogrammed notepads, an address book, pair of glasses or magnifying glass.

Ottoman in Living Room: Wine bottle and two crystal glasses, fresh flowers in clear vase, book of poetry.

A bowl of color coordinated jelly beans or fresh fruit is a nice touch.

A mixture of textures: shiny surfaces mixed with rough textures. Keeps people off balance and that generates interest.
