Home Decor and Home Accents on a Budget

It’s the accent pieces, the finishing touches, the small but significant items that give a home personality. When you’re decorating a new home from scratch, these things are often overlooked in favor of the major decisions about flooring, wall coverings and large furniture such as beds and sofas.

These little decorative items are what make a room comfortable and welcoming. Toss one or two beaded pillows on your bed or couch, and see how inviting it becomes. Brighten up your kitchen with some ceramic gourmet pigs on the counters, and it will become the place where everyone gathers. Envelop your living room in the grace of candlelight and watch everyone relax in its glow. You don’t have to spend an enormous amount of money to create an inviting atomosphere.

Use Greenery to Give your Room Life

Plants and flowers are among the best ways to make a room hospitable. Use a wide variety of planters, urns and plant stands to suit your decorating scheme that are made from alabastrite, which is an inexpensive material. Select your plants and containers to complement the room, not clash with it. Bright colors are excellent for the kitchen, but pastels might be more restful in the bedroom.

Don’t forget about the outdoor areas as a lead to your interior decorating. Matching lions statues at the end of the driveway give a regal touch to your entrance. Or you may prefer something more whimsical, such as loving frogs on a bench sculpture, to liven up your patio or door entrance. For a romantic atmosphere, choose a Victorian style cherub, or hang candle lanterns in the branches of nearby trees. Inside and out, let your home reflect your own gracious welcome.
