The interior of your home speaks volumes about the intricacies of your personality and it’s effectively a gorgeous, warm window to your soul. Home decorating doesn’t have to be an expensive undertaking – simply by adding attractive and functional accessories; your home can evolve into a true reflection of self.
Select handcrafted furniture designed specifically for a space
One way to get the best out of your interior space is to opt for bespoke furniture design or handcrafted furniture made specifically for your home. These beautifully made objects from rare hardwoods, unblemished leather or exotic animal skins will fit hand in glove with the respective areas, using space to its optimum.
Then it’s simply a matter of embellishing the dresser, cabinet or Havana leather 3 drawer side table with simple, attractive and functional accessories.
Popular interior design accessories
Popular items which are guaranteed to enhance virtually any space include:
Lamps with striking and unusual lamp shades including guinea fowl or Egyptian goose feather coolie shades for an ethnic appeal. Alternatively, for a more contemporary feel, select a bronze and mahogany Hudson search lamp or the straight lines and metallic ambiance of the stark Hudson pyramid lamp.
Artwork, either original or in print form, is another winning accessory. Ensure, however, that the colours and chosen subject fit into the overall theme of the interior design. Wild animal originals, prints and photographs of cheetah, lion and buffalo are firm favourites throughout the world.
Throws and cushions have the ability to create a snug and comfortable atmosphere. These days, all sorts of fabrics are successfully used in the creation of soft accessories including genuine African springbok hide, high quality cowhide and even dark brown rabbit pelts!
Mirrors in various guises including ebony & faux shagreen circular, Portobello antiqued or simply ebony framed, have the ability to lighten and brighten any room but ensure that they are perfectly placed to reflect a beautiful view or scene, either interior or exterior.
Leather home accessories including Havana leather photo frames, genuine leather squares rugs, A-grade Hartman zebra floor hides or Havana leather magazine carriers add warmth and texture to any living area.
Crucial interior design accessorising tips
- Before you begin your fantastic journey of personal discovery by accessorising your living space, take heed of these crucial points:
- Try and repeat a chosen colour at least three times in a room.
- Place original artwork, in a spatially correct manner, above existing handcrafted furniture and try to position it at eye-level.
- Vary the height of table top accessories to create interest and balance.
- Custom frame your art so that it is co-ordinated with the overall decor of the room
