Prudence Bailey of Prudence Home + Design is a full-service interior design firm based in Darien, CT. Prudence's signature style showcases clean, fresh and comfortable spaces with a blend of modern and traditional styles. Glamorous or coastal chic twists are often seen in her homes depending on the client. Prudence believes a room should always be approachable, have something unexpected to start conversations and feel a little gold can work magic. Just like us, she loves color and how it adds a smile to every room but she can happily make friends with any color palette that her client’s love. We're so excited to share a few of Prudence's styling tips and showcase how show's incorporated our best selling Ming Grasscloth Console in Natural into a recent design project!
Prudence's Styling Tip #1:
The Highs and Lows
Scale is so important in design and styling so make sure you have varying heights to keep the eye interested. For instance, something tall, medium and short will always create a well styled surface as the eye is more drawn to it than things at the same height. Use books, décor boxes and other accessories as risers.
Prudence's Styling Tip #2:
A home isn’t really a home if it doesn’t reflect you. A room with beautiful furnishings is nice, however it doesn’t become a home until its accessorized: Think jewelry on the outfit! Place books you love, objects, art and treasures from travel and any other things you love around your home to tell everyone who lives there!
