Decorative Accents

Home accents have a big job to do: make a house feel like a home. You can have interesting furniture, but the little touches give a home its personality. Whether you’re into candles and coffee table books, or poufs and home fragrances, these decorative touches are a reflection of you. So choose wisely, but have fun, these small decor pieces are easy to move and replace. Follow these tips to help make the most of your home accents.

Put your decorative accents to work.

They don’t have to be solely about looks. Items such as bookends, candleholders and decorative baskets, boxes and bowls are all meant to serve a function. Maximize their potential by using them for both display and storage. Other accents, like jewelry boxes and vases, can often stand as decor on their own. But when you actually store earrings or display fresh flowers, you’ll find a certain satisfaction in using them as they were intended.

Rotate home accents for a change of scenery.

Living with the same decor day in and day out can get old. Objects start to blend into the background, and you don’t appreciate things like the beautiful artificial flowers you bought last year. Rotating your decorative accents will bring new life to your space and can even make you feel like you’re in a completely different world. Try putting photo albums out on display and swapping out images in picture frames. If you have live plants indoors, move them around or change their current pots and planters. For a travel-inspired look, display knickknacks like statues and figurines, telescopes and world globes on shelves and tables. The combinations are endless, so if you get the itch to rearrange your home accents, go for it!

Rattan Utility Basket
Decorative Accents
October 11, 2016
Rattan Baskets: Baskets were lovely and well made but BIGGER than advertised. I had been looking all over for baskets less than 13" and because of the way these are made they take up 13" space even though they measure just under 13" on top
Black Antique Rattan Storage Basket, Large
Decorative Accents
April 7, 2016
Antique-Style Rattan Storage Basket, Black, Large: Excellent value. Classy color. Sturdy. I am using two of these large baskets to store books on the bookshelf in my living room. The baskets break up the cluttered look I had before in an elegant way. I am very happy with the quality and sturdiness of these baskets.

Beautiful Pillows: These pillow covers (3) were beautiful. I say "were" because we had to return them.......our fault because we thought the colors would match our current color scheme; they didn't. This vendor does beautiful work and are recommended highly. Our refund was prompt and very courteous.
Metal Round Hanging Candle Lantern, Curved Glass Insert
Decorative Accents
October 17, 2017
Its green!: Just a warning, this comes as a really green fake patina. Not slightly green on the edges, no, like really green everywhere. It is not brown in any way like it looks in most of these pics. It looks like the last pic with the green background. That being said, I really like the lamp & will take the glass out (very easy cause clips holding it move) & will spray paint it a black or brown.

Calla Lilies: Beautiful and just the right size for my table to add a touch of class. The flowers are well made with no fraying edges. My order arrived quickly in a well protracted package.

color a bit different than expected: Its a bit more pink or peach colored than I thought. it looks purely burlap colored in the photo but when I received it, it had a pink hue that Im not completely fond of. otherwise a great pillow.
Imax Barrett Spheres, 5 Assorted, Blue Finish
Decorative Accents

Great spheres: Love the design, goes well with my décor. The only other blue spheres I could find had an Asian design which doesn't fit with my room. Only complaint is they each had two stickers on them that were difficult to get off.
Frisco Mongolian Sheepskin Faux Fur Pillows, Set of 2, Stone White, 20"x20"
Decorative Accents
September 25, 2017
Decent Pillows: These are great pillows. The color was what I wanted (off white). and they look nice. They do shed a little but not much. I gave 4 stars because it took 7 days for processing! That's ridiculous. So I had to wait over 2 weeks to get them. Also, they came vacuum sealed and flat as a pancake, which I didn't like. Luckily they fluffed back up. Overall, good pillows. I feel like they are a bit pricey though for the size. I found bigger and more attractive pillows locally at my grocery home store for way less.

Gorgeous!!!: I searched several different websites for these pillows, and was so happy when I found them on Houzz. They are the perfect size, with the perfect amount of “fluff” inside. The navy blue color is seriously gorgeous. Couldn’t be happier with them!!
Oval Planter
Decorative Accents
December 22, 2017
Oval Planter: This is a lovely planter. Just what I wanted. It is a different style. I was disappointed in that the glaze on the inside is a mess and it is scuffed along the upper edge. Was this planter an irregular?
