Accessorize Your Home Decor

Accessorizing your home involves adding finishing touches to your home decor after you've painted the walls and placed your furniture. Even if the furniture is exactly what you envisioned for the room, it most likely won't feel complete without a few well-placed accessories that pull the room together. Consider the style, color scheme and theme of the room when choosing what type of accessories to add.ready to occupy flats in cochin

Instructions

Things You'll Need

Artwork/pictures

Lamps

Candles

Knickknacks

Plants/flowers

Rug

Pillows

Curtains

1

Hang art, pictures or mirrors on the walls. Pick pieces that contain colors, items or similar content as the room they'll hang in. For example, a contemporary living room decorated with chocolate brown walls, white trim and white furniture might have a picture of a white table with a lime green vase and single white flower. Hang two or three medium-to-large pictures together---or a grouping of smaller pictures---at eye-level from a standing or seated position.

2

Use floor lamps or table lamps to light up dark corners of the room. Choose lamps that complement the decor. For example, use antique lamps with hand-painted floral designs for a Victorian living room or bedroom.

3

Place a group of candles on the coffee table, an end table, nightstand, fireplace mantle or shelf. Three pillars or votives grouped together soften the room while adding ambiance. Choose scented or colored candles for the effect you want.

4

Display a collection of knickknacks, pictures, statues, vases or other treasured items. Create a group of similar items that are different heights, widths or textures so they go together while creating balance and interest. For example, if you have a collection of various snow globes or small keepsakes from a vacation, display them together. Each item should be clearly visible within the grouping, or you have too many items.ready to occupy flats in cochin

5

Liven up the room with plants or floral bouquets. Choose artificial plants or flowers if you don't have a green thumb or don't want to worry about the upkeep. Use them to introduce color and "life" into the room.

6

Include texture in your accessories. Accomplish this with a rug in a neutral color for a modern room, or a rug with an interesting design in a plain room. Spruce up your chairs, sofa or bed with throw pillows of different sizes and colors. Place a bold throw on a single piece of furniture that's easy to grab when it's cold and makes the room feel inviting and comfortable. Tie in any bold colors or patterns, or use soft, muted hues in your curtains as the final touch.ready to occupy flats in cochin
