Choosing Your Accent Pieces
Accent Furniture by definition is “any piece of furniture used to add decoration to a space or other piece of furniture.” It seems fairly cut and dry but choosing the perfect accent piece can sometimes be overwhelming. Below are some tips that may help:
- Don’t Use too Many Accent Pieces: Keep in mind the more pieces you have the less any one piece will stand out – keeping things simple is best.
- Think about Size & the Importance of Function: If you choose a piece that barely fits in the room, actually using it may be more of a problem than you want.
- Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment: Color is not a bad thing. Neutral tones will stay in “fashion” longer but color can give your space a little spark.
Remember to have fun choosing your accent pieces. These pieces can be fluid, even move from one space to another as the decorating process is never really complete.
