8 Tips for adding the finishing touches to your home


Accessories are the finishing touches to your home that will complement your design scheme. From designer sofas, cushions, throws, to well-chosen wall art, it’s these finishing touches that add a personal and stylish look and feel to your home.


Leather Gallery has put together a quick guide to help you get started and add that final flourish to your home interior.


  1. Working with the right colours


Working with a set colour palate is the key to defining a beautiful room. Neutral colours keep things looking consistent. Colours ranging from silky charcoal to romantic creams, can infuse a room with sophistication and posh charm. Neutrals are also a great way to support bright colours, bolds, pastels and more, without causing any overwhelming issues.


  1. Blinds or curtains?  


A lot of people opt for blinds today, which creates a more minimalistic atmosphere rather than curtains. Carpets, upholstery, & curtains soften the overall impression of the room, and creates a more luxurious atmosphere. Both backgrounds set the tone for art pieces and furniture. People often try to model their home after a hotel or hotel lobby. This is a completely wrong approach, as it is often impersonal and lacks warmth. Draw inspiration from it and create your own style Couch.


  1. The right sofa for your home   


Use furniture that will create an ultimate look and comfort. Fabric couches are great for smaller spaces, whilst Genuine Leather furniture creates a strong statement in larger spaces. A leather sofa like the Carolina is the epitome of luxury, and creates a warm lived-in feeling.


  1. Getting your rug right   


People don’t really pay attention to the size of a rug, which is a very important element in designing a room. A big rug in a large space makes the room incredible, drawing together all the pieces in the room.


  1. Creating a mood with lighting  


Be sure to have a chic standing, or table lamp which will vary the lighting and shadows in the room. Step back to smaller, simple things. Nothing is prettier than candlelight when you entertain. When you dim the light in the room, it sets the mood. It’s about creating atmosphere.


  1. Adding life with plants


Another important element to use in your home, are flowers and plants. It’s so beautiful to have something alive in the house, like a fern or some kind of plant, tree or flowers. It brings life into the house and sets a warm and homely feel. Should the room not have a lot of natural light required for live plants, feel free to use quality life-like silk plants and flowers.


  1. Adding accessories to your bedroom


You have to have a few beautiful accessories to ground a room, such as artwork, cushions, lamps, photo frames, throws, rugs etc. This is what separates a generic room from a very personalised room that epitomises who you are. These days, there is greater accessibility to these special items – you can look at really chic interiors and find more affordable ways to find special items.


  1. Keep it personal


Your home is your living space, and a reflection of who you are, so make it personal. Whether it’s Chinese porcelain, or a sculpture, there are so many things you can collect that will make your home very personal. When you travel, buy beautiful objects that you love and will give your home a particular identity. Remember, however, to always maintain a focus, and don’t make your home look like a souvenir store. Nothing wrong with souvenirs, just make them special.
