How small decorative items and accessories can make a huge impact in a room?
These simple tips for choosing, combining, and decorating with accessories can help you pull together your room like a pro and avoid the common mistakes many home dwellers make with their decor.
Choose Quality Over Quantity Mass-produced items are inexpensive and readily available at your local home goods store, but is that really what you want to fill your home (and your life) with?
Choose Accessories That Are the Correct Proportion Before choosing and/or placing accessories, take the time to study scale and proportion and what fits best in your space.
Combine Textures and Colors Neutrals are great in large furnishings and permanent fixtures, but inexpensive accessories are perfect to really break out with pops of color and varying textures.
Add Accessories in Layers Think of accessories as decorations on a cake. Large accessories should be placed first and sparingly, with medium- and small-sized accessories filling in and adding balance where needed.
