i'm one of those people who is constantly thinking of ways to rearrange or repaint my house, room, etc. one thing that i always love to do (at the beginning of the year especially) is redecorate, because with a new year comes new decor, right? when my friends at chairish asked me to share how i'd (theoretically) top off my armoire, i knew exactly how to get started.

one thing i always make sure to keep in mind when decorating dressers or shelves is to balance out the height of each item. make sure the top stays symmetrical by adding a tall item, like those flowers shown above. to balance out the height on one side, add a stack of books and a clock on top. some of my favorite reads are darling magazine, the new bohemians, happy handmade home, see san francisco, city sage, etc. i also make sure that the colors of each piece fit cohesively. the gold leaf holiday print from minted and the metallic desk lamp from lulu & georgia are two pieces who's colors match each other very nicely. you can choose items with the same colors, contrasting colors, or complimentary. 

what are some of your resolutions this year? are you a redecorator like me? what would you put on top of your armoire? thanks to chairish for asking and getting me seriously excited to switch some up my decor! happy new year!
