Essential accessories for your house

1. The charm of natural materials

Natural materials are essential accessories for your home.

Giving a rustic touch to your home is a great way to spice it up, as well as adding charm and featuring unique elements with a handmade touch.

One way to do this is with baskets made of natural fibers. You can use them as planters or as a feature that helps you keep your home tidy. Put them in the living room to store remote controls or other electronic devices. You can also use a larger one for blankets near the sofa for chilly evenings.

In the bathroom, these types of baskets are also very useful. They can help you keep your toiletries in order and also add a touch of style. Even in the kitchen, they are good for keeping your pantry tidy.

Another way you can add natural elements to your decor is by adding in a wicker rocker chair or a side table made of these natural fibers. It’ll look great!

2. Long live plants!

Indoor plants are another accessory.

Plants and more plants! This is our favorite of all the essential accessories. They can drastically change your home’s decoration. The best thing is that with plants you’ll also be able to purify the environment and raise your energy, according to Feng Shui. They also add a touch of color in an easy and super economic way.

Choose indoor plants that fit the space you have. Some handle dark places well, while others need to be in direct contact with sunlight. We recommend Adam’s rib, an African violet, sansevieria, a ficus, devil’s ivy, or a peace lily. These are easy to care for and give lots of color to any home.

3. A little light

Lamps are essential accessories since, in addition to adding decoration, they create ambiance through their light.

The options, however, are endless: ceiling lamps, applique, standing lamps, floor lamps, table lamps…  Play with different ways to add warmth to your home.

Blankets, pillows, and rugs of different textiles.

The best way to add different textures to a single space is through textiles. With the proper use of textiles, you can give different personalities to each room.
