Decorating is not an exact science. Some of the world's best decorators have never had professional training or an internship. Yet all the great decorators have that special something. A gift for understanding the client and transforming their home into something interesting. One of the tricks to accomplish that is the unexpected element. The unexpected element can be small, quirky and speak quietly, like a special secret between friends.
Or it can be bold and in contrast to the setting of the room, like this very unexpected element in designer Ryan Korban's apartment.
or as simple as an unexpected table display..
Try adding a normal object in an unexpected way. This room was already gorgeous but the mirror placement takes it to another level.
Until next time..
