Accessorise Your Home

Brighten up your home by adding a few new items without breaking the bank on a full refurbishment. Quite often, we tire of looking at the same things all the time and we get fed up to the point where you think you need to redecorate. But before you go mad, try changing a few items, like vases, photo frames, candles. It's amazing the difference it will make. We're a fan of keeping walls white (or neutral) and adding colour with cushions, rugs and other soft furnishings. We've done some shopping and picked out our favourites:

KELLY HOPPEN - Charcoal Wave Vase, £45

KELLY HOPPEN - Charcoal Wave Vase, £45

A vase is always a good idea to accessorise your home, particularly when it is a statement piece like the one above, which doesn't always need to have flowers in it. It stands on it's own beautifully, when not in use. 

 

ATELIER COLOGNE - Orange Sanguine Scented Candle, £45

ATELIER COLOGNE - Orange Sanguine Scented Candle, £45

You can never have enough candles sitting around your home. A scented one will add a gorgeous smell as well as looking very pretty and sensual. These work in any room.

 

KELLY HOPPEN - Goldie Bowl, £22

KELLY HOPPEN - Goldie Bowl, £22

We are loving these decorative bowls as an alternative to vases, either just on their own, with some pot pourri or even a few sweets (bad habit, I know but fine around the festive season) or as in the picture above with a few rustic looking flowers.

 

LIBERTY ART FABRICS - Gail's Garden in Dawn Vintage Velvet Cushion, £135

LIBERTY ART FABRICS - Gail's Garden in Dawn Vintage Velvet Cushion, £135

When you are keeping your rooms looking white/neutral and minimalist, a pop of colour in the form of a cushion looks fabulous. This is when you can get away with a bright vibrant print like the Liberty one above.

 

KELLY HOPPEN - Black Wicker Basket, £95

KELLY HOPPEN - Black Wicker Basket, £95

Don't hide towels away in a cupboard, roll them and place them in a basket to create a feature piece in your bathroom. Guests won't have to come and ask you for spare towels.

 

WallpaperSTORE* - 'Dioniso 4' Mirror Glas Italia, £1,427

WallpaperSTORE* - 'Dioniso 4' Mirror Glas Italia, £1,427

Ok, don't panic! We don't expect you to buy this mirror (it would be cheaper to refurbish a few rooms in your house!) but hell this is one good looking mirror! This is to give you an idea of what you can do with space on your wall. If you don't have a budget, what are you waiting for?!

 

KELLY HOPPEN - Black Lacquer Display Tray, £20

KELLY HOPPEN - Black Lacquer Display Tray, £20

These display tray seems unnecessary. Just set your perfume/aftershave on the shelf, worktop. But they look so cool and sexy. And you can through those little bits that get left lying around, like cufflinks, hair clips etc. and they all of a sudden look like they have been purposely placed there.

 

WallpaperSTORE* - Rosa, Produzione Privata, £267

WallpaperSTORE* - Rosa, Produzione Privata, £267

A modern take on an ornament! That's it! No purpose, except looking good and creating a talking point when you have guests. A creative piece of luxury.

 

KELLY HOPPEN - Quartz Hurricane Candle Holder, £30

KELLY HOPPEN - Quartz Hurricane Candle Holder, £30

These candle holders are beautiful when a lighted candle is inside. The way it reflects of the glass and gold gives for a very seductive ambience. They look good on a sideboard in your living room, or on the hearth of a fire place or even as a centre piece on a kitchen table.

 

WallpaperSTORE* - Box Arcahorn, £619
