When decorating your home, it’s so important to impart some of your personality and style into the space.B No matter how well decorated, a room with no personal additions can end up feeling like a generic hotel room. The finishing touches may not seem like a big deal at first, but they are what will set your home apart. Here are a few ideas for using accessories to personalize your space and make it feel like home.

  • Break up your bookcases. Instead of packing your shelves full of books, spread them out a bit and use some of that shelf space for displaying treasured souvenirs, a sculpture, or unique objects from a collection.
  • Plants and flowers are always a great accessory. Fresh flowers allow you to add a dash of seasonal color or incorporate a trendy hue without a commitment. Potted plants are also a welcome source of vibrant color and make the space seem more welcoming.
  • Display family photos. If you’re currently trying to sell your home, most real estate agents would tell you to steer clear of this design tip. However, if you plan to stay in your home for aB while, there is no better way to inject your family’s spirit and personality into the space. They will remind you of happy memories every time you see them and create the sense of truly being “at home.” And if you do decide to move later, photos are extremely easy to pack up and store away!
