3 Home Accent Décor Trends
First, let’s talk about what we mean by home accent décor. A home accent is a piece of furniture, wall hangings, artwork, lamp, rug, or any single item that you add to the décor of a room that contrasts the style of the rest of the room.
A quick example is if you had a contemporary grey living room suite, and added a modern navy accent chair. The chair wouldn’t be in the same style as the living room suite, but the contrast, or accent, it adds would perk up the entire décor.
Consider These Home Accent Décor Trends
The beauty of home accents is that there are no steadfast rules. If it works for you, it works. That makes accents a great outlet for your creativity and experimentation. Here are just a few trends to get your creativity flowing.
- Choose a Piece for Inspiration – While we have artwork in mind, you may have a family heirloom curio cabinet or antique that would do the trick. In any case, choose an accent piece for the inspiration you get from it. Like this Meditating Buddha.
- Check Out Accent Tables – With their usual position at the centre of the living room, occasional tables are a natural for becoming your accent piece. They also have an added bonus where the characteristic that makes them work as accent furniture can also make them more practical. Like this modern black and chrome occasional table.
- Chest & Consoles Make a Comeback – The right chest or console can help your entire accent wall soar to new heights. Like this black and mirrored accent chest. And the practicality is off the scale. Your chest or console can be the centre of your home entertainment centre, the place where you keep your keys, and everything else you need before heading out, or just for a beautiful place to store things.
Lighting fixtures are also great accent pieces. Check out our article “The True Beauty of a Lamp”.
