The most fun part of decorating, for me, is accessorizing! It’s a time to layer great accents and let my personality shine! It’s also a time to put a few curated and well edited trendy items in a room to give it a fresh look. Accessories should be fun, add a layer of pretty things for our eyes to catch and be inexpensive. Because I like to change up my accessories quite often I want them to work with many rooms in my home and cost under $50.00! Today it’s episode 5 at Decorating Tips and Tricks and we are talking about free or reasonably priced accessories for our homes. And today I’m sharing more tips about accessorizing here on the blog!
Here are a few suggestions for using accessories in your home!
USE WHAT YOU LOVE
Home decor accessories should show off your personality and things you love! If you love blue and white pottery place trio of pretty decorative blue and white jars together in a vignette. If you have a penchant for flowers and plants grab some stick and twigs or some flowers from the garden and make up a big showy arrangement.
Just one caution! Don’t over do it! Your room should hint at what you love not be a museum for it! Use an edited hand when displaying collections!
My rule of thumb when buying accents and accessories for my home is not to spend more than $50.00 an item. Most of the time it’s much less! Don’t forget to shop your basement, upcycle what you have with paint and to walk your yard for organics to use as accessories!
Don’t forget to look for home accents that will bring a layer of texture and sparkle to a room!
USE SEASONAL ACCESSORIES
Using seasonal accessories are a great way to bring the outside in! Use cut greens in the winter, nests and bulb flowers in the spring, beach accents and garden blooms in the summer and lots of pumpkins and other squash in the fall! Mix them with burlap covered books, fun decorative orbs, large beads, white pottery, moss covered balls, a stack of dishes, a pretty colorful bowl, tall candlesticks and any other accessories you have to tell a little “story”!
When it comes to seasonal decor, less is best but make sure you have a touch of the season in your home with accessories!
