The home accents and accessories in your home are the small details that really make your home unique, that really make your home yours. Whether you just moved in to your first apartment with hand-me-down furnishing, or have furnished your home from a big box retailer—the tips below will help you to accessorize your home to personalize your home.
Head to Pinterest to get some ideas of ways in which you can create some super cute, super cool, no-one-will-ever-know it’s DIY ideas. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be super crafty. For example, if you have a large wall you need to fill—buy a bunch of decorative frames. Then head to your local craft store and buy a bunch of scrapbook paper in various prints and patters. If not scrapbook paper, fabric, wrapping paper, or other textured paper. Place in frames, and hand on the wall in any patter you wish. Take a look here to see what I’m talking about.
Head To The Thrift Store
Thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets, and garage sales are the perfect place to find unique home décor. It’s also a cost-effective way of finding new accessories. If not a thrift store, a few other budget-friendly places are Target and Pier 1—both who have amazing clearance. Also, my favorites—Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, and Home Goods.
Just Add Nature
Don’t forget the impact of adding a few natural elements to any room. The easiest way to achieve this is to add plants. With the variety of hanging and vertical planters, and decorative floor stands—your options are endless. However, don’t underestimate the impact of a large leafy potted plant. Not good with plants? Aloe is gorgeous, only needs watered every week or so—and can be used on minor cuts and abrasions. Also, consider photos and art featuring landscapes or nature scenes, or indoor electric water elements.
These are easy ways to accessorize your home, with the goal of personalizing your home. Keep in mind that re-accessorizing is a quick way to transform your home when you are bored with your décor—or to mix things up for the season.
