  1. Start with choosing items in the color scheme from adjoining rooms.

  2. The Style of accessory items should blend with the style of other furnishings throughout your home.

  3. Vary the heights of items, paying attention to scale of the ceiling above your cabinets.

  4. Consider leaning or hanging artwork in areas with taller wall space. Vary the textures of accessories from glass and ceramic, to metals and woods, to baskets and weaves.

  5. Add floral arrangements and greenery to soften, bringing in elements of nature.

  6. Create small groupings leaving spaces between for the eye to observe and rest.

  1. I love your ideas! I never thought of how the tops of my cabinets look. You have some great ideas! I just put a link to your site on my website – krazy4projects.com. I have some ideas for faux painting on my site which might help some of your readers. Good work!
