Clients will often show me a photo that they’ve come across or an item they’re unsure of moving from a prior location and say “I love it, but where would I put it?” as if that’s the qualifier for purchasing or holding onto the item. I don’t think that’s necessarily true. If you love it, you will eventually find a spectacular place for it.
One thing I love to do is brainstorm with clients about new and different ways to look at items and either find ways to augment them so that they sit well with their new décor, or think of new rooms or purposes where they can be featured. For instance, a living room accessory may find its new home in a bathroom or kitchen. I say, stick with your gut on your affinity to the item and keep an open mind. We’ll find a place for that!
