Our home is the place where we feel most comfortable and relaxed. Additionally, it speaks volumes about our personality and interests, and even small details like home accessories can reveal to our guests who we truly are. Therefore, it’s extremely important that we invest in our house and thus present ourselves in the best light. And, in order to help you find some fashionable home accessories that will match your innovative mind, but also stand the test of time, we’ve prepared a list of our favourite ones. Let’s take a look.Mirrors
Although the primary purpose of mirrors has nothing to do with home decoration at first sight, when you consider all the effects mirrors can have on the interior, you’re most likely to change your mind. Not only will your rooms look more spacious thanks to them, but they will add a touch of elegance to the decoration as well. Additionally, you can go for some interesting fashionable mirror frames which will show what a true fashionista you are and that you’re always up to date with all the latest trends.
Photo frames are definitely a great choice if you want to turn your home into a nice and warm place. Thanks to them you’ll have a chance to display your unforgettable memories and have all the dearest people always in sight. Additionally, you can find so many different frame designs and chose those which will go well with the colour pattern of your interior. Furthermore, handmade photo frames have been a true craze over the last few seasons, and their uniqueness will add that final touch to your home. Finally, vintage photo frames are a great way to create a contrast and make a perfect balance between modern and rustic decor.
Going green is absolutely a must this year, and aside from being considered extremely important for our environment, it has become a kind of fashion statement as well. Therefore, don’t even think about skipping potted flowers when decorating your home. They will purify the air making it much healthier, but also serve as great decor. For example, fashionable Wedgwood pots are uniquely designed and thus will catch the eye of all your guests. Finally, make sure to choose low-maintenance plants, since you don’t want to end up with all your flowers dead after a short vacation or a business trip.
Another evergreen house accessory is a rug. Not only do they make your house more comfortable and allow you to walk barefoot without freezing your feet off, but it can serve as a great piece of decoration as well. We advise you to go for a vintage Moroccan rug which is characterised by a minimalistic design and interesting patterns that will be easily combined with the rest of your decor, making your house look polished and elegant. Finally, these rugs are incredibly soft, so you’ll have a chance to enjoy lying on them while reading your favourite book.
Finally, wallpapers are an accessory that has been popular for years and it will certainly stand the test of time. The great thing about them is that there is an abundance of choices that you can go for. You can literally find whichever colour and pattern you like and opt for those that most precisely depict your feelings and personality. Furthermore, instead of covering all the walls, you can always choose an accent one and get bold coloured wallpapers for it. You’ll be surprised to see how such a detail can do wonders and make an entire room look much more interesting and fashionable.
As you can see, decorating your home in such a way that it maintains a modern look for a long time is not that hard after all. You just need to opt for some evergreen accessories and work out the best way to incorporate them into the rest of your house design. Finally, don’t shy away from experimenting and also adding your personal touch since your home should represent who you are, instead of copying the personality of a famous designer.
