As you may know from experience, it takes hard work to make a house or apartment truly feel like home. This is particularly true for those who don’t have a gift for interior decorating. If you have no idea where to start when it comes to decorating your home, here are three essential decor accessories for 2018 that you should buy to help you get started.

1. Accent Mirrors

Very few rooms are complete without a few tasteful wall accents. A small wall accent that is well-positioned can contribute a lot to a space. One essential wall accent is the accent mirror. Not only do accent mirrors have the ability to make a room feel even larger, but they can also disrupt the monotony of plain wall.

Before you start buying accent mirrors for the walls in your home, you should figure out which mirror size best suits your space. For example, you may want to buy multiple small accent mirrors rather than one big mirror for a large space. You can arrange the small accent mirrors into a geometric shape. Also, be sure to buy mirrors with frames that complement the rest of the decor in the space.

2. Artwork

One way you can liven up a space and add your own personal touch is by putting artwork up on the walls. Ideally, you should choose artwork that speaks to you rather than just purchasing the first piece of aesthetically appealing artwork that you come across. You can put up a painting or a series of black and white photographs. If you decide to put multiple pieces of artwork up, you should establish a design theme to follow.

3. Throw Pillows

Chances are, you’ve heard that accessories are the key to successfully putting together a nice outfit. Well, accessories are also the key to skillful interior decorating. Many professional interior designers will attest that throw pillows are one of the best accessories for a home.

Since throw pillows are relatively inexpensive, they are considered an interchangeable accessory. Therefore, you buy throw pillows for different themes and different seasons. For example, you might buy floral throw pillows for the spring. You can choose throw pillows with quirky designs as long as the colors are complementary with the rest of the colors in the space.
