A house is not a home until you have furniture and lighting. A home isn’t complete until you have accessories that add character and pizzazz. Today, more and more people are proud of showcasing their homes to the world and voyeurs. Coupled in the age of Instagram and Facebook, we’re so conscious about how our homes appear to friends, family and outsiders. Sure, one might have the trendiest wallcoverings, the chicest furniture and the most striking lighting but when it comes to adding that zing to any space, it’s the accessories that matter.
Accessories for the home are like jewellry for a well-dressed lady. It introduces the homeowner’s personality in an expressionistic way. But there are so many types of accessories to choose from – vases, votive (candle) holders, figurines, sculptures, cloches, and so on. So where does one begin? The key is to look for something to unify the accessories. Think of colour, shape/form, pattern, etc. Also pay attention to the colour of your walls and your other furniture and lighting items.
The fundamental means to make accessories work is to cluster items of the same colour, shape of pattern together. These include amassing a family of red vases in varying heights and shapes. This would help beautify a console or dress up a dining table. Sometimes accessories can also work singularly. Take for example, a beautiful bronze sculpture. You want this piece to stand alone in order for guests to marvel in awe and free from any other visual distraction.
Hey, even toys or collectibles can be part of a home decor conversational piece. If you have a large collection of vintage toys, you could group them and place them on top of a customised cabinet to proudly present your painstaking effort in collecting these objects.
A family of white votive holders on a dining table can look pretty on their own, so why not add candles in some of them to create a warm glow? Better still, if you don’t like candles, opt for flowers with their stems cut short so that each votive looks petite and sweet.
Always remember some basic rules: One, go with what you love and don’t let anyone dictate your style; Two, choose a theme but make sure it matches your surrounding decor; Three, consider symmetry especially mantlepiece, doorways, etc; Four, use odd numbers when placing accessories in a group; Five, use your walls as a canvas for artworks, photoframes or picture frames; Six, even your floors can be graced with accessories like area rugs, whimsical ottomans or plush carpets. At the end of the day, it is always important to have fun!
