Finding the perfect accessories and wall décor for your home can be tricky.

The last thing you want to do is invest in a slew of accessories that don’t fit your space and end up in the attic within a few months. Rather, you should identify accessories and wall décor that allow for self-expression, stay in style, and work harmoniously with the rest of your furniture and décor.

Ready to truly make your space your own? Here are four key tips to help you choose the best accessories and wall décor for your home!

1. Follow the 60-30-10 Colour Rule

Interior decorators follow the 60-30-10 rule to balance colours. This rule states that 60% of a room should consist of a dominant colour, while the remaining 30% and 10% should consist of secondary and accent colours, respectively.
Make sure you keep this design rule top of your mind when picking out accessories and wall décor. In many cases, these items will fall in the 10% accent colour category. If your accent colours are beginning to overwhelm your space, however, don’t hesitate to implement décor that uses your dominant or secondary colours as well.

2. Find a Sense of Balance

While it’s true that too many accessories can lead to clutter and chaos, it’s equally true that a lack of décor can make your space feel hollow, clinical, and bland.

There is a fine line between over-decorating and under-decorating, so it’s wise to map out your space ahead of time. Generally speaking, décor should make up the final 10% of your home and should only be added once your furniture has been arranged.

3. Consider the Room

Each room should dictate the type and size of your décor—particularly your wall art. For a bedroom or bathroom, for example, it’s often wise to choose one large statement piece. Ideally, it should feature soft, calming colours that make it easy to rest. Big, bright tones can create a distracting eyesore when you’re trying to wind down.

In a large living room, on the other hand, there is space for multiple pieces of art. Be sure to use several different styles and sizes so that there is plenty of variety.

The dining room is the ideal spot for your boldest and most eclectic art choices. Interesting pieces can serve as great conversation starters when guests are over!

4. Diversity Is Important

Many homeowners like to ensure that their walls, floors, and furniture sets match, but you should take a slightly different approach when choosing accessories and wall décor. In fact, mixing and matching colours, textures, patterns, and styles is one of the best ways to make your space feel unique and personal to you.

At Direct Interiors, our 50,000-square-foot showroom features all types and styles of interior décor from more than 200 brands. Take advantage of our wide selection when filling out your space!
