Tired of your boring throw pillows and potted plants? If you’re looking for some fresh and fun home accents to add a little life to your space, consider the following.
Hanging accent lights. Caged, bubbled, modern, antique—there are a myriad of styles for hanging accent lights, which can be clustered, paired, or used solo to fill up an empty corner or decorate a blank wall.
Mantels. Who says a mantel should only sit above a fireplace? You can easily install a freestanding mantel to rest photos, art, or your favorite books. Another trick? If your walls are dark, paint your mantel to match, and your items will suddenly be floating.
Dips. Dipped painting frames, art or even doors are all the rage right now. Imagine a series of white picture frames with their bottom dipped in gold. The best part? You can DIY these in a couple of hours. All you need is your item for dipping and your favorite shade of paint.
Painted fireplace. Whether your fireplace is no longer active, or it’s only active for a few months a year, painting the inside a fun pop of color can add life to your space. Think a bright blue, merry orange or buttery yellow.
Vertical garden art. That vertical garden is no longer reserved for your back patio. If you have a blank wall, hang a grid-style vertical garden and decorate it with cool succulents, your favorite herbs, or a climbing vine.
