Decorative home accessories will transform a plain room into a space with style
By: Roger King
Decorative home accessories are the finishing touches you add to a room, to bring out glamour and style in your décor.
Paintings, pictures, posters, prints, and wood trim are commonly attached on the walls, making them a part of your decorating scheme.
No matter what kind of home decorative accents you're working with, traditional, country, contemporary, or retro, an informal approach works best.
Decorating a comfortable living space is more than a matter of shopping for a few pieces of wall art. If you're starting from starch or simply doing a small redecorating, it's important to first take a look at the big picture.
Before you decide what kind of decorative home accessories to use, you'll need to determine how you want to approach the design. A large collection of family photos works fine on top a grand piano but will likely crowd an end table.
Grouping artwork of varying sizes is easier when there is a common element. Pieces grouped together make a greater impression than those spread throughout a room or throughout the house.
It's much more interesting to mix old and new, which gives a good look with the potential of being so much better. Simplicity is often the best approach. Finally, don't cluster the home decorating accessories too closely together.
