Your home is where you spend most of your spare time. Whether it is simply just doing the washing, cooking dinner or having a lazy night in, your home is your castle. However many people struggle with injecting a little piece of their own personality into a room, especially if it is over-run with toys and family members belongings. Here at House of Harris we have put together a simple guide on how to accessorise your house, starting with the heart of the home, the living room.
Where To Start
Accessorising is all about finding pieces that make a home your own and also bring a room together. The best place to start is to decide what sort of colours you would like to go for and what essentially matches your room. Choose items that will stand the test of time and that you will continue to love every time you look at them. Make sure however if you have small children to keep certain accessories off the ground and breakable items out of reach.
Finding Items That Reflect Your Personality
As we mentioned before, how you choose to accessorise your living room is completely down to your personality. A grand chandelier or a huge mirror may be all the rage but it doesn't mean that it will suit you. Some simple pieces such as a money box that features your favourite palate of colours can be just what you need to lift the room. Don't be afraid to think outside the box, whilst you are designing your perfect space. Think of new ways to display your prized possessions or new accessories such as hanging your collection of plates on the wall or repositioning some old photographs. Adding new pops of colour everywhere with the addition of a pillow or a throw will really help your scheme stand out and make the space work better together.
The right light can make a room, so don't be afraid to push your boundaries a little. Choose a bold lamp or invest in a dimmer switch to really allow you to change the atmosphere when you desire. A simple flickering light from your favourite candle will also add a little personality into a space and make it feel warm and welcoming.
To completely finish off your new living room, choose a fragrance that you absolutely love. This can come in the form of a fragranced candle or even a plug in air fresher with a soft clean scent. This will make sure that your living room will always appear relaxing and special to you and any visitors.
So go on an accessorise your home in time for the festive season to really breathe new life back into your living room.
