One of the best ways to freshen up a space is with some gorgeous fresh flowers. Grab an arrangement at the closest grocery store or pick up a fresh bouquet at your local farm stand and a vase. Use a short vase for coffee tables or a large vase for sofa tables and countertops to add height to the space and bring your eyes upward. Whether you choose colors you like or colors that complement your interior design, the addition of fresh flowers will not only look great, but they’ll make your space smell good too!

Everyone has a few shelves that serve either as a decorative purpose or a functional one. No matter your shelving, trinkets, and décor are an ideal addition if you’re looking for some more accessories. If you have an empty shelf, you’ll need more than one or two. Instead, try placing an odd number of objects on the shelf. Try mixed metals, wooden décor that brings a sense of warmth, or candles that will double as a way to make your home smell like fresh baked cookies.
While a clean kitchen countertop is organized and beautiful, it can also feel a bit bland. The right accessories can truly bring your kitchen to life, especially if they are organized in a way where they are visible and even functional. Take a look at your kitchen countertops and see if anything is . If so, consider a kitchen turntable for a functional addition, where you can add salt and pepper shakers, olive oil, and other items that you would like close by. On the other hand, if you have the you need but it looks like something is missing, add in some decorative vases or teapots to enhance and accessorize further.
Even the smallest details can bring out a little personality in your interior design. To further accessorize your home, check out small details like drawer pulls and knobs, curtain rods, hooks, or bathroom accessories like towel rings, toilet paper holders, and more. Do these home accessories bring attention or flare to the space, or do they simply exist and function? If you’re looking for a little sprucing up, it’s a quick and easy fix to replace most of these details! Consider mixed metals like brass, chrome, or brushed bronze for bathrooms, glass knobs on dressers and kitchen cabinets, or uniquely designed hooks that fit your style. No matter what you choose, these details will be sure to make your home feel perfectly accessorized.
A top accessory for a variety of spaces – throw pillows! Available in tons of colors, styles, designs, patterns, and even shapes, throw pillows are capable of bringing almost any space together. While leather and fringe are both top trendy choices this year, simple, colorful throw pillows are also ideal if you’re looking for a more subdued interior design. What’s even better about throw pillows is that you can purchase the pillow and cover separately, allowing you to mix and match and change out covers whenever you please! You can also invest in throw pillows that fit the season – holiday pillows are always a hit and add the chic touch your design needs.
When it comes to an interior home design that feels complete, you simply can’t forget about the natural elements and fresh baked goods. Whether you’re planning to entertain guests or you just want your home to feel lived-in, fresh baked goods and grocery items are an excellent accessory to any kitchen. Using decorative bowls, cake plates, or perfectly placed cutting boards, you can show off bright, fresh produce, just-baked cookies and cakes, and more. The touch of color and warmth of your home will truly shine!
