Home Decor Essentials for a Beautifully Styled Home
Our homes are continually undergoing inner transformations as our style changes. But now this dynamic “in between style” has become a style in its own right. The transitional interior design style is the ultimate mix between present and past favourites or classic and contemporary style. In this article, we will take you through key items, that we think will stand the test of time giving you a perfectly curated list of must-haves for your new homes style.
1. Small Rugs
One of the most overlooked, but arguably essential, home accessories is a small rug. While most of us spend an inordinate amount of time looking for the perfect area rug for our living room or bedroom, small rugs are as much a part of creating a well-styled space as any other accessory. Rugs come in a range of different styles and materials. It’s this extra layer that adds dimension and visual interest, essential to creating a welcoming space.
2. Occasional Chair

An occasional chair is a chair that is only used occasionally rather than regularly, like a dining chair or lounge chair. Occasional chairs are meant to supplement the rest of a space’s seating area without being the go-to seating option. Occasional chairs are used, well ‘occasionally’, but don’t let that detract from the importance and impact an occasional chair can have on a room. Not only are occasional chairs functional, providing an extra seat in your room of choice, but they can be the glue and point of exclamation in a room for that reason it’s often referred to as the accent chair.

A playroom does not have to take up a lot of space in cases where one does not have an entire room assigned for this purpose. It helps maintain the classy standard of a house as it provides harmonization and synchrony. You should assign a specific space to house all the toys that your child has. And make toys for children made of materials that are safe for children to use. Like toys made of natural rattan or teak wood.

Like wall art, mirrors similarly help complete the look of any space. Practical and beautiful, mirrors can transform the feel of an entry, a hallway, a bathroom or a bedroom depending on its shape (round or square), frame (metal or wood), size (small or large). And has the added advantage of bringing in more light into a room. The decoration with mirrors is an art, actually.
