Decorative Objects and Figurines

You can add unique visual interest and a bit of character to any room with decorative objects and figurines. Their three dimensional and often small size make them ideal to tuck into nooks and crannies, or for displaying as solo statement pieces. If you frequently entertain guests, consider adding decorative objects that are of interest to you around the house for a great conversation starter. While this type of decor isn’t exactly functional, it can do wonders towards creating an inviting and personality-filled home. With an overwhelming amount of styles and designs available, choosing the right ones can be daunting. Stick to the following tips and you’ll be using decorative letters, vase fillers and figurines like a pro in no time.

What are my decorative object options?


If you name if, there’s a piece of decor to represent it. It’s not hard to find a figurine that resembles a dragon, elephant or any other creature (mythical or real) you can think of. Animals aren’t your thing? There are plenty of other figures, including the ever popular porcelain angels or Buddha statues, to suit your fancy. If you happen to be big on typography, you’re in luck: metal and wooden letters are made in pretty much every size and color imaginable. For those looking for something less literal, abstract shapes in unique finishes are always great eye candy, and decorative balls in various patterns make for excellent bowl and vase fillers. No matter what style speaks to you, don’t be afraid to rotate and swap your trinkets and curiosities. Unlike furniture or wall decor, they can be moved and stored fairly easily, so you don’t have to commit each one to a long term spot.

Where can I use decorative objects in my home?


That’s the beauty of this kind of decor — you can use it anywhere! Spice up your boring old bookcases by interspersing your collectibles and statuettes among novels. Decorate your hearth or mantel with wooden and metal letters that spell out family names or inspiring words. Dust off clear vases and interesting bowls and fill them decorative balls. Line an empty windowsill with delicate fairy or angel figurines. Pretty much any flat surface, like shelves and coffee tables, can be livened up with a simple piece of eye-catching decor. While it is okay to have a variety of decorative objects around your home, be careful not to overdo it; too many knickknacks can start to look kitschy and cluttered. Aim for the carefully curated look instead.
