When I decorate, I often don't know what exactly it is that makes it pleasing to my eye, so I have made it a habit to step back and analyze what I've done. When it comes to styling credenzas, buffets, dressers, side boards and other long pieces of furniture, I've reduced my decor decisions to seven basic elements. (See the video at the end of this post for more!)
The plant and the wood credenza are my natural elements in this design. I love a bit of life around my house. So, there's lots of plants.
Of course, the color I choose mostly comes from florals... because ... well... flowers! The art print here, "When the Mood Strikes" adds just the punch I love. I prefer even the most neutral of designs to have at least a tiny bit of color. Other subtle color elements here include the books (I stuck with green), the green beads, the plant and the bottle. Even the birds have a tiny bit of color. In using similar hues of color, I also created cohesion in the design.
