Cool Accents We Can Have In Our Homes


Decorating our home can be fun and enjoyable.  Taking a blank canvas and developing a fresh new look that is totally unique and built upon your style.  Starting with a coat of paint, maybe some curtains and then we are off to the races.  For those looking to build a unique room or overall space, here are some tips and tricks that you can follow.

Throw rugs

Throw rugs are great to add a splash of color to a room.  These rugs can be placed in the center of a room or in a center of a particular space.  When using a throw run you want to focus on a meeting area, typically, in front of some chairs, a couch or under a table. 


The fireplace is typically an area that we use but really don’t pay attention to.  In general, the fireplace is just an open space that has wood and surrounded by brick.  The screen that is typically used is the standard bronze metal with wire mesh or glass.  For those looking to shake up the dull look of the fireplace consider a decorative fire screen to put in front of the opening.  These screens can allow for unique lighting patters and shadows to flicker around the room.

Adjustable lighting

What really helps pulls a room together are adjustable lighting.  Putting your lamps on a dimmer switch will help to conserve electricity as well as create a unique visual appeal to the room.  Track lighting, a ceiling fan with a light and even small candles will help with creating a unique lighting source.

Creativity and your desire to experiment will take you a long way.  Take your time and really allow a room to speak to you.
