Tips for Infusing Your Personality Into Your Decor Posted on 27 Jun 11:27 , 0 comments

Accent Furniture Adds Personality

Adding interesting accent furniture pieces adds a creative touch to your decor. You can have some very basic upholstered pieces, but the addition of distinctive occasional tables, accent chairs, area rugs, and other accent pieces are what infuse personality into your decor.

I've included some examples of unique and beautifully designed accent pieces below. Just click on each of the photos below for detailed information and a zoomable image.

Select a Distinctive Accent Chair

Accent chairs not only provide additional seating, but they also add a distinctive flair to your decor. There are so many interesting chairs from which to choose.

We have lots more distinctive chairs from which to choose. Please take a look at our complete selection.

Add a Unique Coffee Table

A coffee table often becomes the center of attention in a living room or family room. Since it is usually very visible, think about adding a really striking one.

Add a Dramatic Touch with a Unique Console Cabinet or Chest

A console cabinet or chest is a great addition to an entry. It makes an eye-catching statement and is visible just as guests are entering your home. A unique framed mirror hung over the chest would add a dramatic touch.

Find the Special Home Accessories that Reflect Your Lifestyle and Personal Taste

Whether you have a pretty good idea of the style of design you would like in your home, or if you're still trying to figure out what feels right to you, our Shop by Style feature can help you find the home accessory and accent pieces that are perfect for you.

There are many styles of interior design, but for simplicity I've classified our products into seven different styles - Coastal & Tropical, Traditional/Transitional, Touch of Country, Asian, Rustic, Tuscan/MediterraneanContemporary/Modern, Whimsical, and Industrial. Just by browsing through any of these styles you'll start to get a feel for what appeals to you. However, don't feel that you have to stay within one style. Most of the design I do for clients is eclectic, which is a blend of different styles. Below are some of my favorite pieces from each style group. Just click on each photo for more info on that piece.

Use our "Select Style" menu in the top left of each category page to find pieces in your favorite styles.

Coastal/Tropical Design

You don't need to live by the ocean to add a coastal or tropical touch to your decor. Think natural materials, plenty of glass and breezy white draperies. The coastal/tropical look is relaxed and unasuming. You can bring in the feeling of the ocean with the addition of accessories evocative of living on the coast. Think blue-greens, seashells, nautical touches, and tropical flowers. 

Cordelia Coral Sculpture on Crystal Base - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add a coastal touch to your decor with this delicate coral replica sculpture. This graceful sculpture sits on a sparkling crystal base.

Please take a look at all of our coastal and tropical designs.

Traditional/Transitional Design

If you love intricate moldings and very detailed pieces, classic styling and symmetry, you probably lean more towards traditional design. Transitional design has some of the features of traditional design, but it is more streamlined and bridges contemporary and traditional design with cleaner lines. We have a wonderful selection of accent pieces in Traditional/Transitional styles.

Muted Silhouette Hand Painted Artwork on Canvas - Innovations Designer Home Decor

The addition of artwork and wall decor adds beauty and personality to any style. This enchanting piece will add a harmonious touch to a transitional or traditional design. The artwork is hand painted on canvas. Each piece will have subtle differences, making each a true work of art.

We have a wonderful selection of traditional & transitional designs, so please browse through them and see what feels good to you.

Touch of Country Design

Sometimes called Farmhouse design, Touch of Country has a rustic elegance. Think comfortable and homey using natural materials. Soft floral patterns, checked and striped vintage fabric patterns, handmade pottery and baskets, and bouquets of flowers are all at home in this comfortable style.

Rosalie Preserved Long Stemmed Rose Shadow Box Wall Decor, Set of 2 - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This unique set of six long stemmed roses will add a charming touch to your home. Each rose is beautifully preserved and mounted on an acrylic plate over beige linen.

We have a unique selection of accent furniture and home accents in the Touch of Country style.

Asian Design

Asian design is inspired by the design elements from China, Japan, and other Eastern cultures. Think natural fiber elements, bamboo, and colors taken from nature to create a serene, calm environment.

Genji Burnished Gold Leaf Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This unique Asian inspired wall mirror will add an enchanting touch to your decor. The iron frame features a burnished gold leaf finish. This mirror would be beautiful over a vanity or an entry console table.

If you love the ornamentation of Asian cultures, you may want to look at our beautiful selection of Asian pieces.

Rustic Design

Rustic interiors derive their warmth and heart from the sense of history and simplicity they evoke. Rustic design has a rough-hewn charm with one-of-a-kind objects repurposed in delightful ways. Think reclaimed weathered woods and distressed metals.

Bryndle Rustic Wooden Squares Wall Decor, Set of 9 - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Create a dramatic gallery wall in your home with these unique decorative wooden squares. Each unique square features a 3-dimensional pieced pattern of rustic distressed fir wood framed in silver leaf. Hang them as shown, vertically, or horizontally for an eye-catching rustic touch.

Tuscan/Mediterranean Design

The Tuscan/Mediterranean design style includes influences from Spain and Italy. Think earthy colors, ornate and intricate designs, and heavily decorated furniture. 

Adelardo Rust Bronze Floor Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This distinctive floor lamp will add an enchanting touch to your decor. Hand forged iron, finished in a distressed rust bronze, is accented with an aged black foot. The intricate iron design would work well in a Tuscan or Mediterranean design.

You'll love our beautiful selection of Tuscan/Mediterranean home accents. Please take a look!

Contemporary/Modern Design

Contemporary/Modern design usually includes clean lines and sleek shapes. It's a comfortable style that includes soft comfy furniture, neutral colors, often with bold punches of color, and sleek and beautiful lamps, artwork, and accessories.

 Ravi Contemporary Crackled Gray Glaze Ceramic Table Lamp - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This sophisticated table lamp features a sleek base with embossed decorative tribal patterns. Its beautiful clean lines will add a special touch to a contemporary designed space.

Imagine the harmonious touch you'll add to your home with this whimsical accent table. Slender legs hold up a trio of antique nickel finished lily pads.

Industrial Design

Popular since the early 2000's Industrial Style refers to a trend in interior design that takes clues from old factories and industrial spaces that in recent years have been converted to lofts and other living spaces. Think weathered wood, exposed brick, concrete, exposed metal, and industrial lighting fixtures.
