You never know it but your home accessories can be much more than you think. If they are combined with other accessories, then you would be able to get the most out of them. Here are tips on how you can mix and match your home accessories properly!
Pick a Color Scheme
When you have a color scheme, it would be easier for you to make your home accessories work together. You can have a section in your home, for example your living room, match a certain color theme.
You can tailor your furniture and your accessories after these. If you want more splash of colors, you can also add theme-appropriate paintings or artworks. Indoor plants and centerpieces will also be a design booster.
Offsetting But Still Maintaining Balance
You can offset pieces of your home accessories and make it work together with other pieces to create balance. For example, you can hang art pieces above your fire places and offset these pieces to the side. Then, you can balance the scheme by adding tall pieces like candle sticks or a vase with tall plants or flowers on the other side.
You can add home access that do not necessarily match with your theme but it still compliments the whole room. Usually, these items can serve as your center piece. For example, you can have a modern, chic living room. You can add a classical piece, like a sculpture placed on your coffee table, to add flare and glamour to your place. Although this piece does not necessarily go with the whole theme, it serves as a compliment.
Group Things Together
You can group similar or complimentary things together. Once again, they do not have to match necessarily. They can supplement one another. You can even make your own trinkets. Also note that you do not have to group lots of things together. You can get just two things and make them work. When you group too many things together, this can result in a cluttered décor.
You can recycle things and make wonderful decors out of them. For example, if you have a mirror that you no longer use, you can use it as a tray. Stick other items on it, and you already have a nice home accessory. You can combine this with the tip on grouping things together. When done things right, you could have one of a kind home decors that go well with each other.
Layer Your Accessories
Layering your home accessories can add depth and dimension to a room. You can put together things by height. When a visitor goes over your home, they will also be able to see your personal effects more effectively. It is easier to look things over and they look all the more pleasant when done right.
Mix and Match
There are many ways to add variety when you are designing your home. You can mix things by mixing solids and prints, for example. You can apply this on your throw pillows. Again, make sure that when you mix and match, your accessories don’t clash. Instead, they should supplement each other.
