Adding some accessories to your interior design can be a great way to inject some individuality into your home and give your guests some glimpses into your personality. Whether you prefer a classic contemporary look or prefer something more mid-century modern, there are many ways you can decorate your home to reflect your unique style. In this article, we will look at some great ways to accessorize your interior design.
Incorporating some choice pieces of objet d’art is a great way to enhance your home. Surround yourself with decorative pieces that inspire you and uplift your space. From handcrafted sculptures and ornately designed heirlooms to a stylish dining table centerpiece, use your chosen items to communicate aspects of your personality that may be less obvious to others.
Your choice of artwork can be the jewel in the crown which completes your home’s interior. Whether you’re looking to make a statement or simply showcase your room, the display of artistic works on your walls can help bring your home to life.
Create a visual focal point with the use of a large, oversized piece which commands the viewer’s attention to add a sense of drama to a space. Oversized art works best in rooms that have large ceilings and in a space that is substantial enough to deliver an impact. This could be above a bed or sofa, at the bottom of a staircase or on an empty accent wall.
Use art to infuse color, intrigue and aesthetic appeal as well as to bring a cohesive feel to your space. A general rule to follow when hanging your art is to make sure it takes up at least two-thirds of the wall space or three-fourths of the width of your furniture. Remember to also take into account the frame if you are buying a piece without one.
Whether it’s through table lamps, sconces, pendants, or chandeliers, your choice of light fittings is another great way to accessorize your interior. An artistically designed light fitting such as a multi-light pendant or a statement chandelier will not only illuminate your walls but serve as an attractive and eye-catching focal point, day or night.
Use bare walls as a backdrop to emphasize the shape and outline of an elegantly designed floor lamp by balancing the negative and positive space around it. Lamp shades can also be used to complement other features in a room and are often an easier and less expensive way to accessorize your interior.
Invite Some Nature
When it comes to accessorizing your interior, remember to include hints of nature to add freshness, life and natural beauty to your environment. In addition to these benefits, studies have revealed that indoor plants may help to reduce psychological and physiological stress as well as make you more comfortable, soothed and natural.
To add an attractive botanical feel to your room consider creating your own homemade terrarium which makes the perfect coffee table accessory and beautifies your room. Moisture-loving plants that are suited to a mini climate will work best and include the following:
- Ferns and moss
- Succulents such as Zebra Haworthia and Pincushion Cactus
- Nerve plants such as Fittonia
