    What is Accessorizing?

    The term accessorizing and/or "fluffing" can be synonymous with “softening” and/or “embellishing.” The point of accessorizing is to “soften” and "neutralize" the hard edges. The right item, in the right place, in the right proportion is everything. The room will always feel off or misbalanced if the proportion is out of sync. Come find out how you can accessorize and give every room what it needs. Visit us at or on Facebook at brattonhouseofantiques.

Function can be brought in ad working, decorative pieces and so easy and fun to accessorize with some of the old things that were just part of the everyday chiefdom of the country settlers. Comfort is the key word with Country Decor. The Quilts, the crockery, the simple dishes and Silversmithing and Copperworks for the kitchen are so to be admired and appreciated.

    Staging for a Welcoming Home!…

    “Staging” is usually spoken about in the context of a property being “on the market.” Often times real estate has been vacated, so staging happens, mostly, for those who aren’t overly imaginative and must have “options” (on how “cool” the...

    Cheap Trick (and I’m not speaking of the band…)

    …no worries with this trick! Honestly, the most difficult part of this will actually be going to your favorite paint outlet and deciding upon a color for your new “upholstered” piece! This will sound ever so strange but, but I learned about this through experimenting out of desperation! I became quite weary of accumulating beautiful bargain pieces and storing them til I could afford to get them upholstered, so, again…as they say: “Desperation is the mother of invention!”

    French Country Defined

    Even with a passing quick glance at one of these “havens,” you just want to invite yourself in!!! Entering a French Country abode, u will, again, notice natural materials alongside muted colors and generally some chintz fabric and French period wallpaper. For instance on their colors, they wouldn’t go near an aqua or turquoise, but rather, mix the turquoise with a chestnut or dark brown glaze and then u will come up with a warm teal!

    Designing with Antiques: A Journey to Serenity.

    Design and Well-Being Regardless of whether more of your time is spent at home OR the office…it is going to greatly augment your mental and physical well-being to create, for yourself or your family, a perfect stress neutralizer! For myself, the ideal decorum is “casual elegance.” The key to this is to be relaxing and, simultaneously, appealing as in “tickling the artist’s funny bone!” I have yet to see any style of furniture to where antiquities did not greatly enhance or exaggerate the end-all, sought after “look.” A well-designed home and office will reap countless short- and long-term benefits ranging from a greater sense of pride derived from unending compliments and conversation starters to just the much-needed ability to truly be able to relax on the deepest level possible.

The 60-Carat Diamond Wedding Set is no exception: although it could have been once owned by Marie-Antoinette in the 18th century, its current owner can ensure every social moment is spent talking about her stunning accessory. Marie knows that diamond rings don't come cheap—and even she would say this one is worth every penny!
