This week we’re looking at some of the best ways to accessorise your home. There are a multitude of options with colourful furniture and abstract art you can choose between bold and adventurous, or go for more modest and subtle looks.
When it comes to living room accessories, adding some candles and books to your coffee table will add some life while not over-cluttering. Simple pieces of decor can be changed out with the changing seasons so you can always be inspired by the outdoors.
Rugs are often seen as the most important piece of decor in any room, as it brings a softness to the space while also making the room feel less like an empty area. You can add a colourful Persian style rug to add colour to a neutral room, or to tie in colours from around the space. You could also go for a neutral-coloured rug such as stone or cream colours and you can jazz it up with different textures.
Pile on the pillows! There’s no reason you can’t sometimes go a little overboard with scatter cushions and pillows, whether that’s on your bed or your sofa. You can go all out with the colours to rejuvenate the place, or similarly to rugs you could choose some different textures or patterns such as broderie anglaise.
Framed wall art has made a big comeback as a way to add a variety of colour to neutral-coloured walls. Collaging wall art is currently a major trend, by mixing traditional framed art with abstract, modern framed prints. There’s also no need to spend a fortune, buying prints online from independent artists or finding a good piece at a car boot or market which you can easily pick up a frame for is the best way to make your art look expensive at a small cost.
Accessorising dining tables for dinner parties is a fantastic way of adding a little something to your eating space and wow-ing your guests. From eccentric candles, flowers, colourful napkins, there are no limits to how far you can go.
Adding accessories to your home can be lots of fun, and it’s easily adapted to your style and tastes. Adding few bits and pieces of decor and accessories can help make your house feel more like a home.
