Decorating Your Home: Accent Pieces
Every home comes with little nooks, corners and wall space that are just begging to be filled up with your favorite piece or modern decor item. But where do you start? You’ll want keep in mind it’s best to avoid cluttering the room with knick-nacks but still show your true personality with the items you choose. So when it really comes down to it, it’s all about finding that perfect combination of furniture, room colors and accent pieces. We have picked a few Valor inspired rooms to show you how adding accent pieces can really change the look and feel of the room.
- When you’re starting to bring accent pieces into your room, you want to make sure you are not overwhelming your space. A great rule of thumb is to decorate in groups of three’s or spread out a few stand alone pieces. For example, when you look at the woodsy living room below, you can see how adding natural accent pieces really brings it all together. By using small groups on some of the larger surfaces and some stand out pieces like the rustic animals, it gives off the natural and woodsy theme without being overpowering or cluttered.
- Another really important factor to consider is your colors. When you are choosing accent pieces, you want them to blend well with the rest of the room but still stand out to be admired. Using the room below as an example you can see how well the blue accent pieces stand out in a neutral colored room. The blue tones are carried through the whole room giving it a cohesive and organized look, while still showing off favorite pieces and pictures! A great way to carry the color through the room is to have accent pillows and furniture that matches your chosen colors.
- Last but certainly not least, if you want to keep it simple and clean statement pieces are the way to go! Looking at the modern living room below we can see how a few larger, statement pieces really rule the room (no pun intended). The rustic wood ruler stands alone but really calls for attention as it stands out over the grey and white color scheme. This is a great way to showcase your favorite accent piece and give your room a simple yet stunning look. The wood detailing is carried through the living room with the unique and practical wood storage center. The wood door next to the Valor G3.5 is a secret place for electronics and component storage, keeping everything tucked away and clutter free!
