Where to find accessories
Some of the well known places to find home décor are Target, Ikea, and Ross Dress for Less. But, lets look at some of the other places that designers shop.
Those of you looking for specialty containers with either a utilitarian or decorative look, either Crate and Barrel or The Container Store are awesome sites to peruse. They have everything from kitchen containers and hooks to closet organizers. Also, Crate and Barrel has some furniture and accessories available on their website.
For everything from tabletop accessories to furniture Pottery Barn and Pier 1 Imports are good sites to find items that fit all styles (traditional, contemporary, country, eclectic). Not only do they both have websites, but they also have stores in many states.
If you are looking for an even more designer look, check out these sites: Design Public and 2modern. They have a wide variety of accessories to choose from. Design Public has some wonderful wall art that I wouldn't hesitate to hang in my or a client's homes. One of my favorites is there contemporary piece: Wallter Teardrops Wall Applications (pictured at left).
Then 2modern has an awesome selection of vases. To add to the contemporary look check-out their Alex Marshall Studios - Mini Ripple Vase (pictured at left).
There are a wide variety of sites and stores to find your home décor at. So, if you don't find just the right accessory the first place you look continue searching, because the décor you are looking for is out there waiting for.
