Have you ever seen a picture of a well styled dresser, buffet or bookshelf and wondered how to achieve the same look? It can feel like an overwhelming task but can actually be a simple task. It just takes some creativity and out of the box thinking.

A few items that will create a clean, modern vignette-
Unique objects.
Books with beautiful covers.

You can stay neutral with your color choices or add in pops of color. Whatever your preference is, keep things simple and clean.

You can never go wrong with stacks of magazines or books and leaning art.

Unique objects from travels can create great conversation starters. I am all for a home with lots of personality.

If anything, go black and white for a super cool modern approach.

Great suggestions! This was once a decorating frustration way back, because I just could not achieve those perfect designs I see online. And then I realized that it’s all a matter of putting in objects that have something in common, whether it is texture, color, or shape. This is why I started buying décor pieces in sets. Take for example this glass set: homefurnitureandpatio.com/AG-1002-sku/25424/Ambiente-Handmade-Blown-Glass-Set-of-4-Vases-with-Stripe-Multicolor-with-Golden-Accents-Finish.html. They might come in varied shapes, but they are all unified in their color pattern.
