People often ask me how to accessorize their shelves. This client had a gorgeous fireplace and one of her requests was how to decorate the shelves lining the fireplace. I used a couple simple strategies. First, bigger is better. It is much more appealing to accessorize with a few large pieces than numerous small items. Second, you should accessorize in odd numbers. Last, mix color, shape, texture, and height when you are creating a grouping.
