Accessories that give life to the house
This week we are going to talk about what we believe really completes and characterizes a home, the complements. They are accessories that speak for themselves and tell stories of what they have lived. They let us see the character and personality of the people who live in the houses, their memories, places they have visited, concerns and their most precious beings, and others. Therefore, it is very important to take care of each decorative element, since it must have a sense, balance and homogeneity.
These accessories should go according to the style of the house. We can experiment with them, creating contrasts in materials, combining mat finishes with more luminous ones, overlapping objects and creating compositions. It is not advisable to fill the space with many objects, we opted for strategic and empty places of sensitivity to complete them. We can play with the lights, since they can help us to include very focused points of light in the house. For example, the shelves are little illuminated corners so they are a perfect option where to add them. We can include suspended lamps with colorful cables, table lamps or wall lamps to gain or highlight areas where we want to gain presence.
In addition to the decorative and exhibition elements, it is important to take into account the choice of textiles. They are the perfect source to bring warmth and volume to each area. We look for functionality and practicality to be linked to the design so, depending on different factors, we will choose one type of fabric or another. If we use a neutral and timeless furniture; The use of cushions, rugs, blankets and bedding and bathing can help us to include the chromatic note to the environment. These accessories can be easily changed and replaced periodically.
Finally, we want to highlight the art works as our favorite accessories. Choose a good piece, that represents us and awakens sensations, will help us to give that touch of personality to our home. They are elements that can mark the direction of attention and can become the centerpiece of a room. We have always opted for this type of pieces, adding value to the house and providing it with sensitivity and culture.
