Stylemaker Secrets: What Every Room Needs

Here's what our stylemakers said when we asked them to complete the statement "Every room needs ..."

"... personality. You should be able to get a sense of who lives there. You don't want it to feel like a furniture showroom." -- Eddie Ross

"... photographs. Let your personal journey pepper your space through photos that tell your story." -- Danielle Colding

"... two things: A sense of history and a sense of order. Rooms should have something that's a little dog-eared to give it a sense of history and feel organized to give it a sense of order." -- Nate Berkus

"... books (and lots of them)! You can let your library spill out of the shelves and embrace piles of books on the floor, under the table, anywhere they look good to you. Books aren't just for reading and inspiration -- they can act as art, objects, and decor." -- Erin Swift

 

"... good lighting. It makes everything and everyone look better." -- Lili Diallo

"... TLC. Because once you make it pretty, you want to keep it pretty, which means fluffing the pillows, keeping it clutter-free, and did I mention dusting?" -- Elaine Griffin

"... at least one vintage statement piece. No matter what your aesthetic, an object that reads vintage or rare will give a space an inviting, lived-in feel and instant character." -- Sana Keefer
