Classic Home Decor Accessories



If you’re taking some of this time to freshen up your home, you might want to take advantage of some of these unprecedented home decor sales going on right now.

Today’s round up of eight classic decor accessories, could also easily be called “my favorite things to zhush up a room with” but, I thought the former sounded a bit more official

Here’s the breakdown on these forever pieces:

1. Every space could use something green.

If you’re anything like me, it’s not so easy to keep plants alive – and replacing them gets expensive.
I tend to mix things up – a few faux plants and a few real ones.
For the most authentic faux plants, look for orchids and succulents.
PRO TIP: Diane James Home is the designer’s choice for high end faux flowers.

2. Decorative trays are the best and most versatile home accessory.

You can create a fool proof vignette with one well styled tray.
Add a candle, stack some books and a pretty ginger jar and you’re all set.
Try to choose a finish or texture that will compliment, but not match the finish underneath.
If you’re unsure, a rattan tray will always look chic.

3. Magnifying glasses are a fun and classic accessory to top off a stack of books.

They also add visual interest to a book case or night stand.

You can find some really interesting ones and even start a collection-which would look great grouped all together on an end table.

PRO TIP: Search Etsy for some great looking, affordable finds –like this one.

These are timeless pieces and go great with several different styles of decor.
