You love to follow current decorating trends at home, but you’re afraid your house will look too “been there, done that” after a few years. Is there a way to add trendy accessories to the current decor that will stand the test of time?
Buying accessories that are interesting to you is the key to timelessness. You have to go with whatever suits your own personal style. Part of the fun in shopping for home decor accents is picking up special pieces on your travels, at a flea market or at antique shops. Finding things in unexpected places will help you avoid the mass trends!
But, a word of caution: Many people feel as though they have to display all of their home furnishing accessories at once, but don’t! Instead, group your accessories (three to five pieces) into a theme or particular style and store the rest. For example, milk-glass pieces grouped together look elegant and cohesive, as does a series of silver picture frames or wooden artifacts. When you get tired of what you have on display, pull some fresh pieces out of storage and swap them out!
