Continue reading below for our list of tips on how you can find the perfect home accents for your home’s living room!

Add Your Own Personal Flair

Think about it — the best part about owning a home to decorate is that it’s your home to decorate. Don’t get caught up in trying to mimic exactly what’s on your thousands of Pinterest boards, and don’t be afraid to add your own personal flair when it comes to finding home accents for your living room.

What are your hobbies? Favorite colors and styles? Choose a style, then simply gather home decorations you like that match that specific style.

Bring The Outdoors Inside

Adding plants to your living room area is another great design tip our design experts have learned over the years.

If you don’t exactly have a “green thumb,” opt for succulents! Whether you place a plant in the corner or make it the centerpiece of your coffee table, we’re sure you’ll love the way a living plant can breathe life into the room.


Create A Main Focal Point

Whether it’s a bookshelf, a plant, a piece of artwork or perhaps even a ceiling fan or chandelier, find an object to set as the main focal point of your living room. After you find that main focal point, you’ll find it’ll be easier to find other home accents to decorate around it.

Our favorite kinds of items to use as a primary focal point? A giant wall clock, an antique piece (like a vinyl record player), or maybe even a ladder shelf that can be used to showcase family photos and/or other smaller accents.

Use Books As Decoration

Whether you’re a book nerd or not, we all have a collection of books somewhere in our home. Instead of keeping your book collection hidden somewhere in your study or bedroom, use books that you’ve already read as decoration.

You can display these books on your coffee table or a shelf. If you have a fireplace, books look gorgeous placed on the mantle.

Start Small And Gradually Add Home Accents

One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is buying all of their home accents at once, then realizing they bought too many. Start small, and then as you continue to live in your home, gradually add pieces. This is definitely the more cost-effective way of adding home accents to your home, too.

The best feeling? One day realizing your living room is finally decorated to perfection.
