5 Simple Accessories That Will Make Your Home Look AmazingPosted on: December 27th, 2018
When it comes to interior design, accessories are integral in adding to a room’s overall feel. Here are five décor tips to help you accessorize your space and better reflect your personal style throughout your home.
- Pillows and Blankets
Decorative pillows and throw blankets are a must. They can add a pop of color and give depth to a room without requiring you to spend a fortune. They can also make a home feel inviting and cozy. Do not be afraid of using a bold variety of colors and differing designs.
- Wall Art
Make the most of your wall space by choosing art that makes a statement about who you are and what you love. If you are artistic, feature a piece of your own and use the colors to set the tone for the rest of the room, or enlarge and frame a favorite photograph. Wall art does not have to be images only but can also include items such as a shadow box showcasing a beloved heirloom, a vintage clock, a hanging water feature, or a tapestry from your travels.
Lighting can be a fantastic part of your design, mixing functionality with style. A light source in a room can be a natural draw to the eye, so avoid generic options and instead choose a fixture that speaks to your personality. Consider the finish, the shape, and inspiration for the design. If you prefer earthy, consider a raw-wood fixture or one that integrates shapes found in nature. For artsy, go with a ceiling light with abstract shapes and bold metals, or perhaps a suspension lamp in a funky color. Don’t underestimate the appeal of chandeliers and wall sconces.
- Rugs and Mats
An area rug is an easy way to tie together a room’s color palette while also adding texture. Choose a mat for your entry way that sets the tone for your home as soon as guests walk through the door. Small rugs and mats are also a good fit in front of sinks where you may be standing for a while, or place a deep, handwoven piece in front of a fireplace to add warmth.
Every room should include at least one mirror, which can brighten it up by reflecting the light and creating a more open feel, especially in tight spaces such as hallways and foyers. Go big and choose one with a uniquely designed frame to be used as wall art above your sofa, making your home look and feel more spacious.
