How to Create Personal Space

  • How to Decorate Team

Personal SpaceToday’s lifestyle is so hectic, finding a bit of personal space can be challenging. Just a small area you can call your own will do. We’ve chosen one small section of the butler’s pantry to carve out a personal niche. We think it is important to find a quiet area to pay your bills, plan your menus, make a phone call or just collect your thoughts.

Remember, this is your space. Fill it with the things you enjoy. We designed this space with our Vice President of Merchandising in mind. We took her love of horses and riding and decorated around that passion. Instead of hiding the riding boots in the closet, they now become a well chosen accessory. The equestrian theme is also reflected in the Horse Bit Print. It is a reproduction of an antique from the 1700’s depicting equestrian tack. And of course, our Horse Statue regally oversees the daily tasks.

The pared down color scheme is intentional. The black and cream combination is calming and sophisticated without overwhelming the space. The Gentry Chair is one of our favorites! Its classic lines and comfortable tufting make it a terrific “anywhere” chair. The Verona Indoor/Outdoor Rug was chosen for its durability as well as its balanced, geometric pattern. Our Desk Organizer in black keeps things orderly, neat and accessible. And the fashionable function of our Cote d’Ivoire Table Lamp is the final touch in completing our little nook.

Look around your home and find a cozy niche to make your own. Just remember to surround yourself with the things you cherish. Create a relaxed space that you can call your little corner of the world.
