Creating a cozy home for my husband and three girls is my passion. As a stay-at-home mom on a budget styling our home to tell the story of us has taken some creativity and a lot of DIY’S. You know what though?... That ended up being the greatest blessing, because as my husband and I figured out how to craft items for our home, the idea of Ruffled Nest was planted! Our hobby turned into a full time gig and boy do I feel blessed beyond words. Here I will share recipes, decorating ideas, DIY’S, and updates for our shop. Thanks for stopping by!
One of the most frequently asked questions I get about the products we make is, “what are decor beads strands?” My answer…they are a beautiful decor accent piece that adds a pop of texture and interest to a vignette. But how exactly do you style them? If you’ve never used them before you may not see a use for them. Prepare to fall in love because I am going to show you a few ways to easily incorporate them into your home decor.
Did you know we handcraft and sell a variety of décor bead strands in our shop? I started crafting the strands years ago as a hobby. I am so humbled to now have the opportunity to have the strands I create become a part of our customers homes. It’s definitely a pinch me moment to think about the fact that the strands I’ve created are now in people’s homes all over the country!
Let’s talk layers! When it comes to decorating my home, just like a cake, the more layers the better!! If we’re sticking to a cake analogy, and why not?!… Then think of the decor beads as the pretty layer of extra frosting on the cake. Not the base layer, we’re talking the beautiful added layer of frosting flowers and balloons that as a kid we’d fight over. (Okay, I’ll admit, even as an adult I still want that piece.) So the beads aren’t the frosting on the cake, they are the extra frosting… ya baby!!
Once you see how easily a vignette is transformed by adding decor beads to it, you will realize you want them in every vignette. I’m not just saying that because I sell them. Truly they make styling your home so much fun!
If you are wanting to add in a seasonal touch, or incorporate a color scheme into a space our glass strands always make a statement. The wood and glass strands are full of texture, so you can’t go wrong there either. We are constantly adding new colors and patterns of strands to our shop. It is fun to let the colors of the season inspire us to create new options for our customers.
Not sure where to start?? Decorating is supposed to be fun, so don’t overthink it. If you aren’t sure where to start when it comes to adding decor bead strands to your home…go neutral. Neutral strands can be used year round and fit into any style or color scheme in your home.
Alrighty, are you inspired to incorporate decor beads into your decor? I hope this was a helpful way to get your creative juices flowing. Now, go style those beads and tag us on Instagram to show how you styled that extra layer of “frosting” to your decor.
