Often times it’s the little details that can stall a room design. The furniture is in place and the walls are painted but you can’t decided on the accessories. It’s often those items that really give the room it’s personality and make your home feel complete so they shouldn’t be overlooked. Here are 8 items that will fill in the gaps and add some warmth.
I imagine these specific choices in a room that is traditional, cozy, and a touch rustic.
Although the style of the items may change based on your taste, I consider these 8 things must-haves in any room:
Even if your room has overhead lighting in place, a table lamp adds a little glow.
Find something that has a unique base like this driftwood one.
If your chair or sofa came with matching throw pillows…don’t use them!
Grab a couple of complimenting ones to add a more personalized feel to your room.
Rooms look best when they have layers of personality.
A throw is a great way to incorporate another fabric/pattern.
Plus who doesn’t love to snuggle up on the couch with a good blanket.
I’ve preached it before and I will again, art can come in any price range and from any source.
Whether you frame a large drawing done by your child or find an unknown artist on Etsy,
just pick a piece that goes with your color scheme and that makes you happy.
You don’t have to love bling to add a little gold to your room.
Mixing in metals with all of the leather and upholstery gives the room depth and interest.
Anyone that has worked with me knows that I am big rug lover.
And yes, even if the room has carpet you can layer one of these babies.
Again, it is a chance to add more style, more visual interest, more layers!
To accomplish layers you need different textures too.
Add some natural and woven baskets for additional storage that looks pretty.
Mirrors create the illusion of more space and more light.
There are tons of options out there will fit your style.
So next time you are looking at your room and feel stumped on exactly what’s missing,
reference these 8 items. Make an effort to add 1 or all of these accessories and I guarantee your room will feel more complete and styled, rather than a bland space.
