1. Flower power
Let’s start with the most basic accessorising item: Fresh flowers. Consider a random colour to offset your room’s palette. Notice the layered effect of the bright yellow orchids against the gorgeous coral, linen-inspired wall covering.
2. A splash of zebra
Whether on a footstool or a pillow, a zebra pattern looks great everywhere. It adds an instant flair of exotic sophistication. Zebra feels right at home with traditional, modernand eclectic styles.
3. A starburst mirror
Over a large-scale piece like a bed or a sofa, a starburst mirror creates a great focal point. Notice how this white starburst mirror punctuates the fun colour on the wall.
4. A bar cart
Great looking and practical. This versatile piece does double duty as furniture and bar annex in a living room, a den, a dining room … really anywhere you would like to serve a drink. Bar carts on wheels are great for moving from room to room. Pretty bottles of different liquors can be arranged with drinking glasses.
5. Faux antlers
A classic accessory for walls. Available in a multitude of materials, from iron to felt, faux antlers add a touch of whimsy to a room. Also, antlers create a focal point while adding visual height. Stack antlers above art to create a grouping in rooms with high ceilings.
6. A beautiful bowl
Bowls range in style from modern to globally inspired and can be filled with just about anything. I love bowls filled with beads for the textural effect.
7. An art grouping
If you have one great print, think of how great it could look if there were six. Creating impact with repeat placement is a sure win.
Branches offer a touch of nature on the inside of a home. Sculptural yet still casual. Notice how this organically shaped branch is paired with an art collection of square or rectangular art. Contrast in shapes is eye catching.
9. Glazed pottery
Balance a collection of like-coloured pottery pieces on a mantel or a shelf.
10. A decorative box
Who can resist a small box for stashing jewellery, eyeglasses or the remote control? This accessory looks great stacked.
