Design for the Senses: Smell

Designer Lisa LaPorta explains how the sense of smell can play a part in room decor.

  • Accessories are the easiest way to incorporate scent into a home's design.
  • Buying fresh flowers on a regular basis is a small price to pay for the vitality and scent that gets added to a room.
  • Don't underestimate the lovely scents emitted from materials used in our homes.
  • Fill clear vases or bowls in staggered heights with anything from fresh or dried flowers to bars of soap, flower petals, sand, shells, rocks or even salt.
