3 Ways to Add Character to Your Home With Accent Pieces

decorative pillowRenovations and remodeling are happening all across the country right now, and that in large part has to do with the sudden desire of a modern design throughout the home, according to The Spruce. Homeowners are performing all sorts of changes in order to make their home the perfect modern paradise.

The modern style, at least the one that is trending now, does not have one particular set of rules. A modern home means many things to many different people. However, there are certain guidelines that the modern style follows. For instance, an interior design trends survey from 2017 revealed that more than one-third of the respondents would choose a neutral color pallet if they redecorated their home. What else goes into the modern style? Believe it or not, adding character. Here are three accent pieces to put in your home if you are looking to add some character.

Decorative Pillows
Decorative pillows are great because they can go in almost every room, and they can look however you want them to. If you want to add a pop of color to your living room, purchase some accent pillows. Embroidered pillows and boudoir pillows alike can also be used in any room to add decorative flair. Bedroom (boudoir) pillows typically have interchangeable looks because boudoir pillow covers and boudoir pillow cases are available to replace the current ones. Whatever you’re feeling, for any room, throw in a decorative pillow.

Decorative Rugs
Hardwood floors are a typical feature in a modern home, but they are not necessarily practical everywhere. For your living room or bedroom, put a rug on the floor that matches your personality with color and style to spruce up the room. This will add a ton of character because it is unique to you.

Light Fixtures
Instead of having a boring overhead light or lamp in the living room, replace the light fixtures with new pieces. Your style can be expressed through the light fixtures in the room because you have so many options to choose from. Colors, shapes, styles, and so much more are just around the corner when choosing your new light features.

If you are looking to update your space and give it some rockin’ character, you are not alone. Add some decorative pillows, eclectic rugs, and new light fixtures to any room to make your design style pop.
