Tips for Adding Home Accessories
Adding accessories to your home can be a great way to bring a little bit of warmth or a more personal touch to your living space. These items can be anything that you feel will fit in with the feel of your current themes. Accessories can add style to a room or enhance a certain feel that you are going for.
If you are looking to add a little life to a room, or to your entire house, try mixing contrasting colors. Colors like light blue and brown may seem like they will clash, but actually will liven up a room that currently has a dull or drab feel to it. Even small things like pillows or picture frames could add just enough color to bring life to a dead room.
Sometimes a room can use a little warmth and if that sounds like a room in your home, you should look into adding a few different textures that you can mix in. Things like quilted or crocheted blankets or fancy vases and lamps will mix up the feel of the room and make it feel warm.
Making everything the same texture and color, while it seems like you are matching, you are really just creating a bland room. If you are trying to upgrade a room from a play or fun room to a classy, more serious room you can do so by adding some warmer colors. This work especially when you add these colors into window blinds or curtains. Also earth tones will make a room “classy.”
A room can also start to feel generic when everything is the same color and there is nothing personal in the room. You can easily improve the mood of a room like that with personal items, things like pictures, accessories from travels, or anything else thing will bring up good memories. No matter what you add, when you start to put a personal touch on a room it will improve your mood while in the room and will allow others a window into your life.
Accessories that you add to your room or home don't need to be useless or just take up space. They can be functional as well. You can add an old, handed down chair or rocker to a room to add a little personal touch. Items like mirrors and vases that have different textures or colors that will compliment the colors of the room can have other effects in a room. A mirror can actually make a room appear larger and a vase can hold flowers that will add even more color to a room. Even storage or shelves can be considered accessories when they add a little color or style to a room. Shelves come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors that can really improve the feel or mood of a room.
