Combine colors and textures. This is the fun part about using accessories, mixing with colors and textures! Combining such elements create visual interest. What makes it fun is the variety of ways you can do it. You can use accessories in the same color spectrum or use their complementary color. At the same time, you can use an opposing color to create a lovely contrast. See the possibilities? The same goes for texture. You can aim for something complementary or contrasting. Example, a succulent with a red, violet or yellow flower can be a breath of fresh air in a white monochromatic space.
Besides a plant, a book case or a lamp, like the ones sold in Laura Ashley, can provide a good contrast to a room.
Choose the correct proportion. Have you ever entered a huge room only to find that thereâ€™s a rug the size of a lunch box? How about a bedroom with a painting which covers the wall? Itâ€™s important to choose an accessory which complements and improves a space. A good-shaped and colored rug can add life to an all-white room. Well-placed mirrors in a small room makes the space appear bigger. Before you choose an accessory, take the time to study its proportion with the space you will put it in. You can go as far as using a study scale, you know, the ones used by interior designers, or a simple tape measure. The correct proportion isnâ€™t just for aesthetics, the right proportion is also for better comfort.
Quality over quantity. Itâ€™s easy to get carried away with accessories, when you finally see how fun they can be. But do you really want to overfill all that space with accessories? When it comes to accessorizing, less is more. Otherwise, it becomes clutter. A specially chosen or unique piece can be better than a set of accessories.
Try to be different. Some great accessories need not come from a store. There are others you can find in your backyard or even on places you have visited in the past. This includes seashells, twigs, leaves and flowers (you can dry and preserve then frame them), rocks and even pine cones.
People are even collecting sand from where theyâ€™ve been and placing it in a cylinder. Take it a step further by collecting soil or rocks. This will create a great contrast when they are all lined up in a transparent container.
You can also try hanging dÃ©cor. A gold birdcage, a flowing plant or suspended lighting or candles.
Whatever accessory you want to add to your space, just remember that it should be a reflection of your personality. And that is truly the essence of accessorizing.
