Can you say your home feels yours unless it’s filled with items that best speak of you? I highly doubt it! This is the secret to making a home homely and even if you can’t exactly afford to go for a grand uplift, you could pull it off by filling the gaps with homewares as they’re the accessories that add the finishing touch same way jewellery does with our outfits.
Considering there are many options of contemporary accessories home decor can be whatever you want it to be but you can’t just buy based on an impulse, you have to put some thought into it to decide what it is you need to best reflect your personality.
Of course you’d also have to use your budget to help narrow down your choices but it shouldn’t be the only factor. For instance, think first how certain pieces affect the cosiness of your interior; do they add to it or do they make for a mess?
Cushions are a great way to increase the comfort as are rugs and while it’s okay to match or mix and match try to avoid too much mixing and matching because you could get visual clutter and imbalance instead of harmonious ambiance; in other words, overstyling is a no no and it’s best to stick to carefully choosing the colours and patterns.
When you have bare walls and want to fill them with some liveliness you don’t have to resort to accent walls with wallpapers and go through all the trouble and extra expenses of installing them as there are contemporary accessories home decor could do well with like artworks and the stylish and functional wall clocks that steal the attention with their design and craftsmanship like the Nomon clocks.
One way of making the choosing easier for you is finding out what the current trends are, like biophilia, inviting more of nature at home, the tendency to decorate with dusty pink, and anything handmade from furniture to cloths to show off your skills and further personalise the place, but you don’t have to stick to trends exclusively or at all if they don’t represent you best.
One last aspect: Do you have enough brightness in your home? When you don’t have enough light it’s easy to get a dark gloomy outcome that messes with your mood so even if you don’t have as many windows as you want you could always use bright colours and mirrors placed to reflect the natural light from windows to do the trick.
