When you accessorize your homes, imbuing it with personal style is an absolute must! You can take a look around online and curate certain ideas, but going for similar objects that can easily be found in mass produced forms throughout the globe is a bit disheartening. So today, we’ll be sharing a few tips on how you can accessorize your homes without compromising personality. Let’s take a look:
1. Feature your hobbies
First of all, you need to pinpoint what makes you happy – any specific habits or hobbies that give you joy, or something that you enjoy collecting. Once you’ve found that out, half the work is already done. Featuring your hobbies within your home is the most intimate form of accessorizing. So if you’ve got a collection of drawings gathering dust in a drawer somewhere, frame them. If you’ve got a secret Hello Kitty collection, then display it!
2. Go for instant impact
You don’t really have to select show objects, as much as go for instant impact. This basically means that even if whatever accessory you’ve selected is small, and doesn’t really catch the eye instantly, you can make it so with some outside interventions. You can highlight its display with the help of some customized lighting, or even choose the location of placement to be instantly eye-catching.
3. Be creative – tell a story
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box a little bit. There’s no point in selecting accessories that do not speak to you – you’ll just be collecting stuff that means nothing. On the other hand, if you find decoration pieces that are quirky, unconventional and tell a story, then your interior designs are automatically going to mirror that notion!
4. Fresh with greens
When your surroundings are stark, then going for a beautiful pot of fresh greens is the only way to accessorize. Even here, you can add a little bit of your own personality in the mix by choosing small planters that you like the best. The shape of the plant and the texture of the leaves is a certain way to emulate a bit of yourself within the space.
5. Use everyday items
Sometimes, using decoration pieces can seem a little contrived – especially of the space you’re decorating is a functional one. In such cases, you can use everyday items and arrange them in an aesthetically pleasant way. For example, appliances in kitchens can be used to accessorize the space nicely.
