(Family Features) When it comes to brightening your home’s decor, accent pieces can make all the difference. But adding these touches doesn’t have to break the break. Here’s how to incorporate inexpensive, beautiful and practical accents around your home.
Dressing up the heart of the home can be as simple as placing a bouquet of flowers or a decorative hand soap by your kitchen sink. On the counters, keep clutter to a minimum and inject pops of color with a clear or wooden bowl filled with your favorite seasonal fruit.
Living Room Accents
One easy way to add character to the living room is to utilize pieces that tell a story. Treasured mementos from a special vacation or frames filled with pictures of your loved ones add not only a personal touch, but also give visitors a glimpse at the things that matter most to you.
And consider using accessories that serve a dual purpose – wax candles can both enhance the decor and provide pleasant scents, while a throw blanket can complement the decor while providing some cozy warmth.
If you’re hesitant about patterns in your home’s sanctuary, try incorporating a bold design through an accent piece, such as a lamp shade. Add a stack of your favorite books on the nightstand in a nod to your personal style.
