Sometimes the small decorations in a home make the biggest impact. Whether you're decorating a single room, multiple rooms or your entire home, you should consider some of these small decorations to achieve the greatest results.
When you think of decorations, a shadow box probably isn't at the top of your list. After all, it's more of a architectural element rather than decoration, right? Well, yes and no. A shadow box is certainly part of a home's architecture, but it's also a part of its decor. Assuming your home doesn't already have them, consider adding a few strategically placed shadow boxes to enhance the decor and improve its aesthetics.
Although small in size, a cuckoo clock will make a BIG impact on your home's appearance and decor. Originating from Germany's Black Forest region, Cuckoo clocks are prized for their attention to detail and intricate designs. While a traditional wall clock is nothing more than just a time piece, a cuckoo clock is a true work of art. This makes it the perfect decorative accessory for a modern home.
Assuming your home has a foyer (which most do), you should use this area to set the tone for the rest of your home's decor. Upon entering your home for the first time, guests will likely see the foyer. This can either help or hurt your home's decor depending on how it's designed. Leaving the foyer empty and void isn't exactly the best idea, as it offers nothing in terms of aesthetics. If you decorate the foyer with a small desk, lamp, books and other small accessories, however, it sends a positive message while setting the tone for the rest of your home's decor.
Another fun, and small, decorative accessory that makes a BIG impact in a home's overall appearance is a painted letter (or several). You can find these decorative letters available at most arts and crafts store, or you can make one yourself. Either way, you can paint these letters, mounting them to the wall for an instant decorative boost. So, what letters should you choose? It really depends on your personal preference, though many homeowners use their own initials or other meaningful letters.
