Jane Wilder Decor and Accessories

Jane Wilder photographs the beauty in botanicals and natural surroundings. As a visual artist living in the San Francisco Bay Area, she has plenty of inspiration right where she lives. Photographs of whale watching and desert rocks make you feel as if you are right there with it. Beautiful cactus photographs, banana trees and oak trees are captured at just the right moment to create works of art. Hang them throughout your house or on a covered porch.

Tie in the colors of the artwork on the walls with a rug placed on the floor. At Pottery Barn, we have textured sisals in neutral tones that work well inside or out or go for bold patterns. Whatever your color scheme is, by tying in wall hangings with rugs, you’ll have a finished, professional look from top to bottom.

Integrate mirrors throughout your home to accent artwork and reflect other decorative pieces. Visualize a bigger room just by adding a few mirrors on the walls. Whether it’s a cheerful sunburst mirror, an ornate formal brass or contemporary geometric shape, mirrors are great accessories for any room in the house. They not only look good but are very functional as well.

Throw pillows are another decorating accessory that can coordinate with the palette of colors you have chosen and the style of decorating in your home. Embroidered pillows give a classic feel. Floral designs add a feminine touch. Paisley prints and plaid patterns can fit anywhere. You could also be adventurous and try several faux fur pillows. Mix and match solid colors for a layered look on a sofa or chaise. Select textured fabric for a rustic vibe.

Another way to accessorize and personalize your home is to find decorative items that relate to you, something you enjoy or something you do. If you enjoy going to the beach, you might use sailboat bookends or display coral on a shelf. For a naturalist at heart, place a metal lizard on an end table or use elephant bookends in your study. An elegant fountain pen on a stand makes a statement placed on a desk, especially for someone who still enjoys writing letters and notes. For lovers of the sea, hang colorful oars on the wall. On your coffee table, place a nautical knotted rope or painted fish designs on a stand. These decorative items also make excellent gifts for others, especially when you find gear specifically to them.
