You may have furnished your home just right but something’s missing until you give it a personal touch. This is where decorative accessories come into picture. With a bit of imagination and good taste, you can give your home a distinctive look. Read on for tips on how to choose the right pieces.
You may have visited homes where the shelves and table tops were crowded with all kinds of knickknacks creating a mess. Start thinking of the items you display as conversation pieces and you’ll change the way you choose them. Work with a theme to make things easier. For example, if you travel a lot, you can get souvenirs or handicrafts from the places you visit and each shelf can be dedicated to a particular destination. You could try clustering a collection of similar objects such as vases or snow globes. Alternatively, you can have a single object of interest such as a green deer from IKEA that is at once quirky and aesthetically pleasing.
Don’t ignore walls when it comes to decorating your space. Posters and paintings are the easiest ways to incorporate colours and patterns into your room. Large framed photographs or a cluster of framed photographs work just as well. If you don’t prefer to display photographs, you could try putting up wall decorations in the form of wall stickers, metal wall art, masks and more. IKEA’s set of wall hangings in the form of three oversized buttons are at once unique and a convenient way to jazz up a boring wall.
Walls, shelves and tables aren’t the only things you can decorate. You could also hang mobiles. Who said mobiles are for babies alone? An interesting bird mobile from IKEA can make an interesting addition to a boring little corner of the room. Alternatively, hang it from an exposed beam in your home to add a bit of whimsy to your space.
As you can see, there are many ways to liven up your space. The point is to fill up the empty spaces with pieces that mean something special to you rather than clutter the space with objects. Happy Decorating!
