6 Small Decor Ideas that Make a Difference

Getting bored of your own room after a long period of Circuit Breaker? Thinking about major changes like repainting or investing in new statement furniture? Hold your horses and strap your wallets, before splashing on big and bold new pieces, consider these small statement decor items to bring personality into the space. 

Not all expensive and ‘high brow’ furniture are made equal, it’s the little things that contribute to the bigger picture. Smalls can provide detail to the aesthetic and emotional uplift to any interior! Whether you’re beginning your journey on a room redo project or looking to change up a few things, you can use family heirlooms, pre-loved pieces, or small and unique decor items to make the space special. 

These small but mighty items can be added to your shopping cart without making a huge dent in your bank account:

1. Textiles

Level up the comfort of any place with pillows and throws! Charming, humorous, and bold, a few bright textiles on your sofa or bed will make it feel brand new. Choose from these cute, shaggy, ruffly lamb fur pillows, an embroidered Moroccan-inspired patterned pillow or place a preppy fringe throw and you’re all set.

2. Licensed Prints and Wall Art
Being stuck at home means spending more time staring at your walls, if not at your screen. Look away from social media for a bit and hang up this amazingly detailed mirror wall art of the world atlas, even if we can’t physically travel. For works of accomplished artists, browse the famous San Francisco artists Rob Delamater Abstract Art collection, Magesa Biseko’s Glowing Seashells collection or Keith Haring’s graffiti pop art street collection! Not too into colours but need to make a statement? This trendy gold-plated wall accent might be up your alley. Once they’re up, your room will have a whole different ambiance, and easily changeable once you’re bored of it!

3. Vases and Botanicals

The most affordable and easiest way to reinvent a space is to style it with botanicals, both real and faux. No more worrying about the plant wilting, or setting up a water schedule on top of your busy day. These hydrangeas of multiple colours, trending evergreen succulents and unique vases will add life and vibrance! If you’re a beach person, our beautiful baby blue shell vase will be right up your alley, and we’d recommend a rounded beige Peyton Bowl Planter for the fellow minimalists. Using any of these in an empty corner is a great way to create a modern, organic feel without spending a fortune!

4. Mirrors

Mirrors are the best addition for anyone who is living in close quarters. To make the most of the possibilities that a mirror could offer, you need to think carefully about where you want to place it. Bigger mirrors in smaller rooms can make it seem spacious, while decorative mirrors create more visual depth and brighten up a spot when placed at the right position reflecting natural light. To tickle your fancy, go with a statement twinkling sunburst round wall mirror or a rustic Hollywood glam oval mirror to elevate your #mirrorselfies. To achieve that simple, Scandinavian style, our hanging round mirror will fit right into this style perfectly.

5. Sculptures and Decoratives

If you love mixing patterns and colours, adding a small, colourful sculpture can make your bookshelf or console table pop. From family heirlooms to a souvenir from a trip, this piece will not only add personality, it becomes a meaningful reminder. Small sculptures and ceramics such as this cute ceramic succulent or fossil-inspired seahorse accent can be used to style a bookcase or coffee table! To add drama and ooze exuberance, the silver winged accent, a shiny coloured quartz stone or a sleek black sand hourglass can be placed in the center to draw attention. When choosing an accent, let your creativity roam free and see where it takes you!
