Top Accessories to Make Your Home Look Like a Magazine

Hi Friends!

Sometimes a blog post idea will hit me out of nowhere - like this one :-)  Well actually, it was probably subconscious as I just had a lady ask me this:

"I just remodeled a part of my home and now that it's done, I have NO IDEA what to do!  How do I make it look homey, it just looks so bleak and barren." 

The answer to this question is: ACCESSORIZE!  

I know that some of you are on a very tight budget, so I wanted to help people with ideas on what home accessories are WORTH the investment!

Here is a list of "tried and true" ideas that can really change your home from blah, to WOW:-)

My very first recommendation is to add TEXTURE to your space. The best way to accessorize with texture is to buy a nice throw blanket or greenery

1) A comfy textured throw and pillows

(This is perfect to add some layering on a sofa.....layering really adds that designer touch)

I love using a throw (sometimes even a faux fur throw) to add texture to my clients room.  Obviously if you are trying to add texture to a kitchen I don't recommend a blanket (even though it might make doing the dishes a little more fun) I would recommend greenery on top of your cabinets.

2.) A pair of wall sconces

(GREAT for on either side of any art piece or mirror!)

                                                   Hammered Mirror Wall Sconce - Set of 2

These were one of my favorites! I might just have to find a spot to put these in my own home!

3) A set of pillar candles

(These go so well on ANY mantel area or table top - make sure and get the varying heights!)

                               Carved Wooden Candle Holder in Different Sizes Set of 3

4) Large wall clock

(It's hard to go wrong with a wall clock, you can find a spot for this type of thing anywhere!)

                                                 IMAX Large Wall Clock with Pendulum

5) Greenery

(Buy large for the corner of the room and small for all your table tops. I can not stress enough how much greenery adds to a room!)

                            Silk Decor Preserved Boxwood Ball Topiary, 8.2-Inch, Green

6.) Wall Decor 

Mirrors or any type of art add a LOT to a space.

Fun accessories - Vases, Pitchers, Wicker Baskets, Mirrors etc.....

(Department stores like Homegoods, TJ Maxx and Ross always have these type of things at great prices too)
                                                  Set of 2 Rattan/Metal Lidded Boxes

                                                Large Old World Camping Candle Lantern

This leads into my next big announcement - I started an Amazon Store for my readers!
(if you can't see the store on your reader you can see it on your computer)

I wanted to give you guys great ideas on how to decorate your home with classic accessories for good prices.  You guys already know I am a huge stickler for finding bargains.  I can not handle finding out that I paid 150.00 for a set of candlesticks when I see another set that I like LATER for 75.00!

I was happy to do some of the researching for you guys :-)

Your Welcome - hee,hee.  My clients picture below has quite a few of the accessories above put into "action" :-)
