Quirky Home Accessories

April 15, 2014

Our homes should be a reflection of our personality, letting guests that walk through our door know that we are either quirky, stylish, modern or classic. Interior design can be a long winded decision.We want it to stand the test of time and we also don’t want to go overboard due to forever changing trends..

You might be the type of person who has a quirky or cheeky side, yet might not want that permanently projected in your home. So what’s the alternative? Home accessories are the key to finding the correct balance of modern and quirky but in an effortless way where you have the option to put those accessories away whenever you want to.

If you think about how many pieces are advertised in fashion in current magazines, but also ones we may not want to wear year after year, interior design is the same. Minimalistic homes sell easier because they’re not completely filtered to one person. Therefore when you add simple accents to a room, whether it’s theme, print or colour, it will make a huge difference.

Here are some brilliant, fun accessories that can refresh you room without a lick of paint.
