Have you recently moved into a new house? Making your house a home is one of the most essential parts of the moving process to add personality and style to the new spaces. You can do this by adding several decor pieces and accessories. The little details can transform a mundane space into an inviting and comfortable setting. Let’s look at the fun and simple ways to accessorise your home, giving it a unique and welcoming vibe for yourself and your guests. Whether you are a minimalist looking for some neutral wall art prints or a maximalist needing new contemporary lighting and textiles, there are ideas for everyone to infuse into their living spaces to build character and aesthetics.
Throws & Scatter Cushions
We should start with the basics, which in this case is your seating and bedding area. You can incorporate throws and scatter cushions to your sofas, chairs and beds that compliment your overall style. Mix and match different sizes and shapes for a more visually appealing look, or stick to a clean, symmetrical vibe for a well-coordinated home. Countless options are available in various colours, styles, shapes and sizes, so you can easily find something that suits your look. This type of accessory is also budget-friendly and can easily be switched out to align with new seasons or to change up your space quickly.
Art And Wall Prints
Empty, bare walls can look dull, so you may consider hanging artwork that resonates with you, whether it’s classic paintings, family photographs, or your own creations. Create gallery walls with a mix of framed pieces, mirrors, and even wall-mounted shelves for a dynamic look. Wall decor allows you to add texture and intrigue to your home without the commitment of painting. Similar to scatter cushions and throws, this can also be a budget-friendly option to easily change up the vibe of your room. You may wish to have a collection of prints that you can swap out and change as the seasons change, too.
Plants And Flowers
Bringing the outdoors in with the likes of houseplants, flowers, and dried bouquets has become increasingly popular over the years. Houseplants not only purify the air around our houses but also add a natural, calming vibe to every space (which is why so many people incorporate them into a home office). With so many available, including succulents and ferns to towering fiddle leaf figs, there are plants you can look after no matter how committed you are to keeping them alive. You can also find an array of decorative planters and vases that complement your decor style to elevate your space more.
From curtains, tablecloths and bed linens to a well-chosen rug or carpet, the textiles you incorporate throughout your home will play a significant role in the accessorising process.
This is a wonderful way to experiment with different textures, patterns, and colours, allowing you to add more depth and personality to the room. If you are someone who enjoys decorating with the changing seasons, this is a quick and straightforward way to make your home fit that vibe; whether you prefer a cosy contemporary home or seek neutral minimalism, there is a textile to match!
Lighting & Ambience
If you want to completely transform the ambience of a room, the proper lighting is essential. Investing in statement lights, chandeliers, unique table lamps, and neon signs will not only act as functional fixtures that provide light when you need it, but they will elevate the room as an eye-catching accessory. If lighting affects your mood, you should consider smart lighting options that allow the mood of the space to be changed in a matter of seconds with the touch of a button. As well as these lighting fixtures and lamps, you can invest in an array of candles and fairy lights to also provide a cosy and romantic atmosphere for those more special evenings.
Turning your new house into a home with new decor accents and accessories will be an ongoing project that requires thought and creativity. Making your living space, where you spend time every day, uniquely yours, reflecting your personality and tastes, is incredibly important. Whether you prefer to make small, subtle changes or have a more daring side and go with bold, dramatic statements, the key is to have fun and enjoy the process. With these fun and simple ways to accessorise your home, you’ll be well on your way to creating a space that’s visually appealing and a true reflection of you. With the likes of textiles, lighting, plants and wall art, you can make any house feel more like a home, no matter how big or small your budget may be. Happy accessorising!
