In Our Community: Blueprint58 Thanksgiving Dinner


After having grown up under the generosity and culture her parents established at Accent Decor, and having worked there herself for going on 15 years now, Rebecca Stanley and her husband started the nonprofit mentoring program Blueprint 58 in their neighborhood seven years ago. The ongoing support of Accent Decor for Blueprint 58 contributes to lasting change through relationships developed over soccer teams and across the Thanksgiving table, creating something that goes beyond mere philanthropy to the heart of community building.

Free-for-All Images & The Story Behind Them

Here at Accent Decor, we believe that regardless of our products’ inherent beauty, we must continually strive to present them in inspiring, yet natural ways. Imagery remains our strongest tool in creating an emotional connection with our customers. Through our finished images, whether in print or on the web, we hope to not only inspire but also to illustrate the craftsmanship behind the entire AD brand. This craftsmanship extends from product conception to product creation, to the hard work of the creative team in bringing it all to life.


Our product development team seeks inspiration from just about everywhere when developing new collections each season. Likewise, our creative team brainstorms, daydreams, and researches the best ways to showcase and highlight all of our finished products. For each season, as well as every photoshoot, mood boards are created to integrate the trend’s atmosphere with each piece’s individual shape, colors, textures, materials, and personality. Because Accent Decor is committed to carrying such a wide range of products, the creative team’s challenge is to set up breathtaking environments to both flaunt the angles of our crystal event pieces and feature the detailed craftsmanship behind our handmade pots.

Once the mood has been set, the team gets to work finding the right location, sourcing unique props, and collaborating with a floral designer to bring each piece to life. We create an array of sets within our studio, while also hunting for exciting and beautiful locations around Atlanta to best translate our collections into stories and scenes that connect on a deeper level with our customers.
Now that we’ve dreamed up the scenes and coupled our products with florals, furniture, and other props, our location photographer works closely with our Art Director to translate the team’s vision through photography. On photoshoot days, you can often find Accent Decor team members sneaking in to inhale the heady scent of a roomful of flowers and to catch a glimpse of the magic happening behind the scenes. In a flurry of activity interspersed with the stillness required to get the perfect shot, sets get switched out and reimagined, while lighting and angles are explored and captured under the careful eye to detail of the whole creative team.

After the shoot gets declared a wrap, each shot is carefully curated and edited to create a final image that stands up to Accent Decor standards of inspiration and beauty. The process from image and scene conception to a finished product on the page or the web requires the work of a dedicated and talented team of creatives each step of the way.  Once images are on our website, they’re free for everyone’s use. Whether you’re a budding designer or an established company, we understand that beautiful and timeless images can be few and far between. Accent Décor is proud to offer and promote the sharing and use of its images. Everyone can legally use our website, blog, or social media as a visual hub for discovering and downloading public domain images. Whether you are plugging our images into your Instagram feed, supporting a blog post, or using them for commercial purposes, we hope the intersection of magic and hard work our creative team puts into every image will shine through and inspire your work to bring beauty to the world.

How It's Made: Benji Pot & Leland Vase

Explore the story behind the product...

Watch how our team captured the artist behind the vessel.


The Benji Pot: Handcrafted in Portugal, our Benji pots are one of a kind with their crosshatch texture paired with white or bronze finishes.

Upon returning from her travels abroad visiting our pottery factories Sarah Bagle, our Creative Director, shared her perspective on witnessing the work behind the pieces. "It is easy to be blown away watching a potter sculpt a piece of clay into a work of art. You can watch the face of a potter at work and see his connection to the work, lost in the task at hand. It's mesmerizing to watch the movement of the clay as it takes shape. There's something peaceful about it."

Catch a glimpse of how the Leland vase comes to life.


The Leland Vase: One of our more difficult products to sculpt due to its height, the Leland vase stands tall and chic with its smoke grey glaze.

Porter Planter



A classic silhouette with an updated finish in dark basalt marble glaze, the Porter Planters are perhaps our most versatile new design. Crafted from rich German clay, they are frost-resistant and include a drainage hole.

Santorini Vase
"Our 2018 Outdoor and Garden Collection makes it impossible not to dream of patio-lounging in warm Spring weather. We wanted to encourage easy layering of planters in a sophisticated, muted palette. Simple, classic shapes with raw and natural textures are offset by planters with a little extra character and hand-detailing, like our Zona vase." - Sarah Bagle, Creative Director
