It's All In The Details...Less Is The New More

On a previous recent post I shared a few details of my kitchen and my "less is more" mentality these days in simplifying my decor and life. I'm a huge believer in paying attention to detail...and just a few accent pieces at a time will have much greater impact on the eye. I'll be sharing a few accents that I added to the master bedroom today in this post...so read on if you will for tips...

Fresh flowers are a must in most rooms around here and add a ton of punch for just a few dollars. Today I picked up the most lovely blush pink tulips at Trader Joes and popped them into a vintage aqua pitcher that I've had for years in those collections I often talk about.

Small details count as well and using an antique or vintage (or new!) tassel adds a touch of elegance where it is hung. These are easy and often inexpensive to find in your travels and in fact the one at bottom is a silk tassel with some age to it that I picked up at a French brocante...
An old screen that I covered in lace hides clutter in a corner of the bedroom and at the moment has a vintage pink prom dress displayed. A few small touches of pink that can easily be moved around and restyled elsewhere, and one pink pillow in a cloud of white on the bed is not too objectionable to the man of the house...
