The Importance of Corners

IMG_0027.jpg

People tend to forget about corners when decorating. Don’t underestimate the importance of them - a properly decorated corner will balance your room and take your space to the next level.

An Etagere is a nice way to fill the empty space of a corner. Be careful not to clutter it with too many items or you will confuse your eye and miss out on a clear visual of the whole room.

The simplest solution is plants. We use ferns all around the store to balance and soften the corners. You may not have noticed them - but they are in every window and most corners of our displays. Plants not only add color and texture, but are soothing to the eye as well. 

Pick up a nice floor plant or use a plant stand to make your corner bright and lively and see for yourself the difference it makes. If you can’t find a plant stand, think out of the box and use large glass vases to hold your plants like the ones we have here in this photo.
