It’s March, and we’ve been talking about color in interior design. Aside from paint, one of the easiest ways to bring color into your decor is through accessories. We talked about using houseplants as accessories, and today I felt the urge to head over to Etsy, where I can find great handmade home decor accessories. (In case you didn’t know it, we have our own Etsy shop, too!)
The great thing about home decor accessories is you can change them as the mood strikes. Maybe you’re sick of that chintz throw pillow. Maybe you got over your passion for purple and now want to erase all of it from your design scheme. Maybe you want to move your decor in a more contemporary direction — or shift to a more traditional look. Home decor accessories can help you accomplish all of these goals, and do it stylishly and affordably.
Accessorize for Theme
A new, handmade Victorian style wall hanging like the one pictured makes an affordable and attractive way to underscore your Victorian decor. Whether you simply love all things Victorian, or you own a bed and breakfast and need wall art, a piece like this not only brings color to the room but reinforces the design scheme.
Accessorize for Place
You may not want to use a whimsical crab rug at your city house (or then again, you might!), but this charming fellow will put a smile on your face when you visit your beach cottage! Upcycled from old t-shirts and hand painted, this pretty, round rug adds color and is environmentally friendly, to boot.
Accessorize because You Can
Albie Designs will create a watercolor painting of your cityscape and then send you a high-quality print for the wall. I love the cool, retro style of this painting, and look at the beautiful color. What a great way to personalize your space. Albie also does cityscapes of world cities, like Paris, so you can get your France fix, too.
