Once your home renovations are complete and you have added new furniture pieces, it's time for accessories. Introducing artwork, lighting, decorative pillows, plants or sculptures gives your space personality and adds texture. Note the term personality; this is one of the most important things about accessorizing a space. It is the jewelry of your home!

You want to incorporate pieces that are significant to you and are a reflection of yourself. Refrain from using accessories just to fill up space on a console or on a wall. Each piece should be one that sparks joy and adds meaning to your life.
