Decorating your home can be a daunting task. Even with experience, it’s always intimidating to “build” an empty room from the ground up. Decorating with accessories is one of the most overwhelming challenges of all! Where do you even start? There’s no gospel truth about how to accessorize your home, but these easy steps will hopefully give you a nudge in the right direction!

Set Your Decorative Foundation

The hardest part is getting started. Firstly, you want to literally “set the tone” and style for the space you’re decorating. Before you begin decorating with accessories, first figure out what you want the focal point to be in each room.

This focal point can be a number of different things! Perhaps it’s a grand sectional that dominates the whole space. Perhaps it’s a brightly colored accent chair. Or maybe it is a beautiful, antique Persian rug. It can even be a piece of unique wall art that you found at theLOFT or at your favorite gallery! Regardless, this focal point should provide color and stylistic cues that will help you know how to accessorize your home.

Accessorize Upon That Foundation

Next, take the decorative cornerstone we discussed above, and figure out what complements it. For instance, if your foundational dining room piece is a farmhouse dining table, you’ll want to compliment it with a rustic centerpiece, art, lamps or fixtures that look like they’d belong in a farmhouse. Think reclaimed wood, wicker, or metal.

If you’re arranging your living room around your favorite piece of modern art, take color cues from its vibrant palette. To keep with the contemporary theme, be sure to use accessories featuring geometric shapes and patterns.

Rinse and repeat this process for each room you’re decorating!

Make It Your Own!

Finally, remember that there are no rules except for the ones you set for yourself! Everyone’s process for decorating with accessories is a bit different. However you want to accessorize your home is entirely up to you! Floor lamps or table lamps? Bright colors or monochromatic? Busy or sparsely decorated? It’s your home. Find the colors, theme and style you like, and go with it!
