A house may be made of brick and mortar. It may be filled with sofa’s, tables, and beds. The linens may change, the wall color too, but it’s the accessories, and decorative pieces that make a house a home. These items, gathered over years, passed down from generation to generation, each add up to tell a story about a family and their traditions. Whether procured on a trip, or given as a gift, proudly display your home accents and only choose pieces that hold special meaning or are uniquely beautiful to you.
One of the best ways to treat a friend or family member is to give them a home décor accessory as a gift. With so many interesting bowls, platters, sculptures, figurines and artwork to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding an interesting accessory that will make a statement in the receiver’s home. Furthermore, by giving designer home décor accessories as gifts, the receiver will always think of you and be reminded of a special birthday, anniversary or other celebratory event when they walk past the item.
A great way to ensure that your home is full of items that are meaningful is to begin a collection of some sort. Whether you choose delicate glass perfume bottles, gorgeous display platters or glimmering jewelry boxes, a collection is something special that can be passed down from generation to generation. While our mothers often collected quaint things like baby spoons or magnets, there are now incredibly affordable but exquisite home accessories to choose from. Designers like Vietri Skyros, Olivia Riegel, and Pearl Dragon all offer an endless array of beautiful items that are perfect for procuring and collecting in your home.
Another way to adorn your home with meaningful accessories that tell a story is to choose a favorite theme and build a collection of accessories all around that theme. For example, if your family loves traveling to Paris, choose Parisian themed clocks, coasters, framed signs, and Eiffel Tower figurines to decorate your home with. Any visitor will be instantly drawn to your thoughtful decorative scheme and will ask about the significance of your accessories. Consider continuing the theme by framing pictures from said trip to Paris in a gallery on the walls or keeping old train tickets and other trinkets under glass or on decorative platters.
We hope we’ve inspired you to begin looking at your home in a new way by choosing home décor accessories that speak to who you are and what kind of family you have. Since your home is the ultimate reflection of self, be your own designer and create the home of your dreams. The right accessories make all the difference on your quest to tell your story.
