Home Decor - Accents that Every Home Needs

Today we've got a guest post with Clarissa Caouette! I've been SUPER into home decor lately, and I love what Clarissa has to say! :) 

Home Decor: Accents that Every Home Needs

Accents are what take your room to the next level. They are those little details that make a room come alive. Let's look at a few easy options to add to your home.

Window Treatments
Whether your home has a ton of windows or just a few, they all need some sort of window treatment. The only windows that may not need anything are small round or hexagonal windows. There are still options for round windows, though.

A valance is perfect for areas where you don't want long drapes, think a window over a kitchen sink or in an office. A valance is a good way to decorate that window while leaving it practical.  

For other windows you can use treatments that are longer. If you want to keep a lot of natural light, opt for sheer curtains. If you have a large room, this is a great time to add bold colors and patterns. For a really dramatic look, pair floor length curtains with a valance.

Rugs are a great way to add style to a room. Don’t be afraid to add vividly colored rugs. If you have light colored walls, go with a bright bold color, like red or royal blue. If you have bright colored walls, you can choose a light colored rug, even white.

When you picture a rug, you may think square or rectangle, but it doesn't have to be. In some areas, a round or oval rug may look better.

Lighting can be a powerful accent, but is often overlooked. Have you ever walked into a room with an Edison light bulb? Did you immediately notice it? Yes, you did. It has an interesting, warm glow.

Have you ever walked into a room and were drawn to the beautiful chandelier? Yes. This is a great way to add beauty and style to a room. Accents do not have to be limited to the floor or tabletop. You can add big accents to the room just from the ceiling alone.

Floral Pieces
Flowers are a great way to add color to the room. If you have a table near the entrance, a bouquet of flowers looks nice there. If you have a large foyer with tall ceilings, choose a tall vase with a tall arrangement.

For smaller areas, like a half bath with a pedestal sink, you can add a small vase with only one flower in it. You will be surprised how much that one flower will impact the room.

For average size rooms, play with the different styles. Try large and small arrangements. This flowers can add color to a room or even soften the look, make the room feel more cozy.

Accent pieces are a great way to show off your personality in the room. Have fun with this. Don't be afraid to choose bold colors.
