Simple Accents

May 11, 2015 04:49AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features



(Family Features) Small details and accent pieces can make a big difference when it comes to dressing up your home. However, adding a touch of personal style doesn’t have to break the bank; you can actually make a big difference by adding simple, practical and inexpensive accents in every room.

In the living room
An easy way to add character to your main living space is to incorporate pieces that tell a story. Treasured mementos from a special vacation or frames filled with pictures of your loved ones give a personal touch to the room, while giving guests a deeper glimpse at the things that matter most to you. Another strategy for smart accessorizing is using items that do double duty, such as adding a pretty wax candle that brings an inviting scent and look to the room, or a decorative throw blanket that adds both a pop of color and some cozy warmth.  

In the guest bath
Small accents can make a big difference when it comes to dressing up a guest bathroom. When space is a concern, it is important to focus on function while adding attractive touches that express your own personal style. Try Softsoap’s new Fragrant Foaming Collection Liquid Hand Soap line. The beautiful packaging will brighten and beautify your sink, while enticing scents of Jasmine & White Cotton, Whipped Cocoa Butter and Kitchen Citrus Bliss provide an indulgent hand washing experience.

In the bedroom
In the sanctuary of your bedroom, keep your focus on comfort. Plump pillows in a variety of shapes and colors add flair to basic bedding. If you’re hesitant about patterns, try incorporating a bold design through an accent piece such as a lamp shade for a big impact that won’t overpower the room. Add a stack of your favorite books on the nightstand or a pretty box to hold trinkets or jewelry to help bring a unique look to a space that is all your own.

In the kitchen
Dressing up the heart of the home can be as simple as placing a bouquet of flowers or a decorative hand soap by your kitchen sink. One option is Softsoap’s Fragrant Foaming Collection liquid hand soap in Kitchen Citrus Bliss. Its colorful, inviting packaging and crisp, sun-drenched aroma invigorates every hand wash, while lush foam gently cleans and soothes skin. On the counters, keep clutter to a minimum and add a touch of color with a simple clear or wooden bowl filled with your favorite seasonal fruit.
