Styling pieces and accessories help to create a home. They add personal touches and character to the room and without them your room will look like a blank canvas. These items can include throw pillows and cushions, artwork, vases, candles, and other decorative objects that reflect your personal style and interests. They can also help to tie the room together by echoing colours, textures, and patterns found in other elements of the space. By carefully curating a collection of styling pieces and accessories, you can create a space that feels warm, inviting, and uniquely yours.
Once you have selected your base colour scheme and big furniture items you can begin to build the character into a room. Utilising artwork on the walls, different size, colour and patterned cushions, you’ll notice the room take on a personality of its own. Not everything needs to match but the colours should complement each other. Pick up some of the colours in a rug or artwork and add the same colours to your cushions. Select throws for the sofa that complement the colours of your cushions but perhaps in a different pattern.
Styling with books is a fantastic way to fill up blank space and add character to your room. Get the book covers to complement the colours in your cushions. Using textures such as velvet in cushions is a great way to add luxury to your room. Styling takes time so don’t rush it. Some of the best homes represent a museum of someone’s life with a stunning eclectic mix of different pieces collected over the years. And most importantly have fun with it!
