Who doesn’t love a good candle right? The great thing about candles is there’s tons of options and they can also help decorate the space.

Throw Pillows/Blankets

Throw pillows and blankets are a great way to add a pop of color to your bed, couch or even an accent chair. They make your space feel cozy and are also a great option for decorating on a budget. Adding options such as having a large basket to hold blankets or some spare pillows is another great option. For a farmhouse look consider adding a wood ladder against a wall and toss a couple blankets over it to decorate and store the throw blankets.

Picture Frames

Picture frames are a beautiful way to add a personalized touch to a space. They can be hung on the wall to really make a statement or standing picture frames can be used to add some decor to surfaces. I love a good gallery wall in a home to really showcase the family, make it feel like home, and also make a bold statement on the wall. You can easily use small picture frames to add more pictures to a wall or keep it more simple with choosing maybe 3 large picture frames.

Decorative Accents

There are so many decor options when it comes to decorative accents. These accent pieces could be small abstract art sculptures, vases, baskets, bowls and so much more. Decorative coffee table style books is another one of my favorite ways to decorate. They look great on a TV console, coffee table, end table, dresser, or bookcase. They are also great to look at from time to time and can offer fun decor inspiration for your home. Lamps are another fun way to decorate a space. They are great especially if you need some more light in a room, but also look great on just about any surface making them a great decor option.

Large area rugs can definitely be expensive. Adding some small decorative accent rugs throughout your space can be a less expensive way to still get the throw rug look and add some color without the price tag of a large area rug. Consider adding a runner near the entryway or kitchen. Small area rugs at the end of a bed, by a door, in the bathroom, or an entryway are some other great places to add some small area rugs to your space.

I love the look of plants in a home whether real or artificial. The natural look adds a brightness to the space and the greenery from plants compliments just about any color scheme or style. They are also great because floor plants make a great option to add something more to a room, but smaller plants also look great on any surface.

Mirrors are a great way to add a statement to a wall. I love adding a nice mirror over a dresser in a bedroom or console table in a living room. Floor mirrors are another great way to add some decor to a room. They are also a great way to decorate “up” a wall without having to hang items all over the walls.
