1. VASES

Vases have long been timeless objects when it comes to decorating since they can complement any home aesthetic. To create more of a presence and statement, you can position a larger vase on a pedestal of some sort (whether empty or with something decorative inside) in order to add an elegant touch to your space.

3. CANDLES

Candles are one of our favorite accessories because they come in all shapes, sizes, and scents! You can decorate any interior space with candles or even hang them on your walls. Candles will give a space more ambiance and will make it feel cozier at night. They also evoke feelings of peace, serenity, and relaxation.

4. RUGS

Rugs are the ultimate way to anchor a space. Ideally, a rug should be big enough that some or all of your furniture’s feet can sit on it. Consider using them in different ways too, whether it’s a few rugs overlapping each other, hanging them on walls as conversation pieces or even placing some in your entrance hallway.

5. BAR ACCESSORIES

Let your bar area reflect the décor of your space. You can have a bar area built into the design of your home, a bar cart, or you can simply set out a tray of bar essentials with wine glasses and a decanter  while keeping a few beverages and accessories in stock. This looks great and is very practical especially if you’re a person who enjoys entertaining.

7. COFFEE TABLE BOOKS

A beautiful coffee table book is not only fun to flip through, but it can do amazing things for your home décor! Coffee table books look great in every corner of your home, from entryway consoles to a dining room buffet, from a bookshelf to a guest room nightstand. They help elevate the look of any room and provide personality. They also provide a window into your interests.

8. UNIQUE DECORATIVE OBJECTS

Unique decorating objects such as a magnifying glass can add interest to any decoration. Pick out pieces that speak to you and can serve as conversation pieces.

9. MIRRORS

Use mirrors to make your rooms look spacious. If your rooms are dark and small, mirrors that are properly placed can capture light, enhance space and add character. Creatively angled mirrors can highlight your loved accessories, bounce light through the room, or reflect your space in interesting ways.

10. SHINY ACCESSORIES 

Add eye-catching shine such as crystal accessories or decorative pieces made of gold, bronze, copper, brass or stainless steel to your interior space. Make them stand out by placing them in an area that your guests will easily notice.

11. ART

No home is complete without art on the walls. Give life to your walls by hanging art pieces you love! Art  can reinforce your home’s color palette or you can break from a neutral palette and use art to bring color into a space. Art is very personal so make sure what you pick, sparks joy and speaks to you!

13. THROWS

Drape your sofa, chairs, ottomans, or bed with throws. A classic look is draping a blanket over a piece of furniture to give a sense of dimension and have the fabric flow naturally. Nothing says “home” like warm, soft throws. They also come in handy when you want to cuddle up in the sofa with a good book or to watch a movie.

15. PLANTS

Plants are natural accessories that bring color and life into every space. More importantly, plants are beneficial because they help reduce stress, clean the air, reduce noise levels and boost creativity.

You should also take into consideration the color and size of the pots and planters that you put your plants in since they should be chosen according with your room’s style. For example, large planters like these add color and interest to any outdoor space.
