Being a homeowner is a very responsible role in life because it implies taking care of a whole household in numerous different ways. Providing the family with warmth, comfort, and overall coziness cannot be achieved without knowing what they need. However, there are always certain standards that exist in any home. Security wise, the premises must remain safe especially during the night. Then there are renovations that need to happen every once in a while as well as inspections by certified professionals to make sure the house remains optimal. All of this is a lifelong occupation and something that does not stop. Similar to owning anything else, you keep at it as long as that is your primary residence.

One other thing is important for the homeowner, one that is typically shared among all of the family members. Apart from making the home safe, warm, comfy, and more than just a place where people live, it should also look nice. Designing and decorating are very important as they have the power to transform any home in whatever way you like. It is customary to paint the walls to match the carpentry and the furniture, but what about the rest of the things you have visible in each room? What about the accessories that life and character to every corner?

Well, if you need help with this, we have you covered. In this article we will focus on the most useful tips and tricks for decorating a room with accessories. Read on to learn more about this and be sure to check out foyr.com for additional information.

  1. Quality Over Quantity

This is an approach that works for just about anything. It is hardly restricted to accessorizing the home, but it is perhaps more easily achievable than with something bigger and more expensive. Items that are mass produced and readily available just about anywhere are inexpensive for a very good reason. The home goods store in your neighborhood may be close and convenient, but are those really the best you can find? Is this really the best option for your home? Remember the good old saying that doubles as the most often used approach for home decoration, less is more. This means a few statement pieces that are of high quality and that have some artistic value in them are always better than a bunch of meaningless, poorly made trinkets and ornaments that you found at a value store. Quality items are more satisfying to own and to look at. They are more capable of bringing out the best aspects of the room. Chose it over cheap knockoffs every time and your home’s decoration will flourish!

  1. Mind the Proportion

Now, we hardly have to talk about how different every home is. Big or small, convenient and traditional or modern and unique, there are always accessories that can either make or break the whole unison of the interior. Caring about the proportions is how you use the space the best way, how you open the room that is small, and how you fill up a larger room so that it does not feel empty. Why put a small rug in a spacious, open living room? While cram large paintings together on a small wall when smaller pieces would look better? Scale and proportion are everything in interior design, with bigger things like furniture and storage but also with smaller stuff like accessories. Making a home comfortable, interesting and fun to be in, and peculiar to look at is easily achievable with nice accessories around the place. Just make sure they are the proper size for their designated place.

  1. Color and Texture Combinations

The colors and textures of the items you plan to have lying around and filling up the space cannot be of just about any combination. They have to complement the furnishings and the permanent fixtures of your home. Otherwise they will look out of place and attract the wrong kind of attention. Make sure to use accessories to add some needed visual interest and contrast, especially if your home is sporting a minimalist design with mostly neutral colors. Depending on your mood, the season, and the style you most agree with, you can add some color that will disrupt the neutral nature of the interior and bring in some life and cheerfulness. Let the already present items in each room guide your decision and pick things that are a little bit different in the material they are made from, the texture they have both to the look and the touch, and the colors they have.

  1. Arrange Asymmetrically

Wanting everything to be perfect is no way to have a relaxing and inviting home that looks and feels cozy. Accessories should never be something that appears to dictate the mood and impose on the order and the behavior of people inside. It is much more efficient and natural to have things like candles or vases in odd numbers, in groups, and not symmetrically places on each side of a larger thing. It does look clean and neat to have a mirror in the center with art of house plants on each side symmetrically placed. However, it usually feels boring and like a snooze to enter and spend time in a room that is trying to be perfect. Reaching balance and peace if much more important than trying to keep everything tight. Go for an odd number of decorations like one or three instead of two, four, or five. We promise it will change the way you perceive a nice looking home that has interesting accessories around.

  1. Know What to Get

So we have told you what to put in your home, where, and how to arrange it. We have mentioned a few of the go-to decorations and accessories, but what else makes most sense to have in a home? There are no rules, which makes it fun and exciting, but there are certain things to try out that usually work out. When it comes to lighting, floor, table, and pendant lamps are amazing. Baskets and bins not only look good but they can double as storage. Books and magazines scattered on club tables are always cool. Glassware like vases is timeless, as are candles and candle holders. Natural elements like house plants and seashells are a must, as are mirrors and hanging wall art. Have some pillows and cushions on your sofas and armchairs, and a rug or a doormat here and there. Easy peasy!

Wearing accessories is a must if you consider yourself a fashionable person. One of the most common materials used to make anything from rings and bracelets to necklaces and earrings is sterling silver. Now, chances are, if you have any sterling silver jewellery you’ve noticed it become slightly duller than it was from the first time you wore it.

You remember how shiny and glistening the ring was when you first bought it and now it seems like it has lost some of its shine. On top of all of that, you’ve noticed darkening.

Now, we know that those dark spots may look unappealing or even harmful, but that’s not the case – at least for the harmful bit. It may look unappealing when your rings turn dark – unless you’re going for a worn-down, rugged look. Be that as it may, it does not mean that your rings have gone bad beyond repair. On the contrary, they’ll still in their prime, they’re just a little worn out.

What does it mean when my rings turn dark?

img source: unsplash.com

What happens to sterling silver is a natural process called tarnishing. Tarnishing of the silver is something that will inevitably happen, no matter how much you wear, clean or take care of your jewellery.

Sterling silver is an alloyed metal. That means it’s a mixture of silver and some other metals, usually copper or zinc. One of the great ways to know whether you’re dealing with actual sterling silver, not some other metal coated to look like silver is to look for a ‘925’ marking. The 925 mark means that the material used to make the ring, or any other piece of jewellery, is 92.5% silver. Anything beneath the 92.5% is not deemed sterling silver.

Now, we were talking about tarnish. It’s something that happens naturally, it’s a simple chemical reaction of the mixed-in metals to oxygen and moisture in the environment. Basically, we call it tarnish, because oxidation might sound a little bit too harsh. But, essentially, it’s just a natural process of oxidation that ‘ruins’ your gorgeous accessories.

So, now we know what’s going on and why are our sterling silver rings crossing over to the dark side. However, what we don’t know is what we can do to prevent tarnish or how to make them shiny again. Well, we’ll learn in just a few moments.

Polish Your Rings

img source: unsplash.com

One of the easiest and best ways to keep your sterling silver shiny and good looking is to polish them now and then. You’ll need a polishing cloth for starters. A regular rug or a paper towel will not suffice. You might try with a microfiber cloth you use to clean your glasses, but there are better options. You should be able to find cleaning and polishing cloth for silver in most jewellery stores or you could order them online.

One thing to remember is that silver is gentle metal. So, unless you have a polishing cloth or a microfiber one, you should avoid using anything else no matter how soft it may seem to the touch. It could easily scratch your jewellery. So, if you want your beautiful silver rings you got from this website to look good for a long time, use proper cloth.

Wash ‘Em

img source: unsplash.com

As you could probably assume, one of the best ways to keep things clean and good looking for a long time is by washing them now and then. Most of us own more jewellery than we can wear at one time so some items stay in the box for a long time. We’ll get to that later, but, the sterling silver actually tarnishes faster if you don’t wear. So, if you see some tarnish on the piece you haven’t worn in a long time, don’t worry. If there is not a lot of tarnish, you should be able to get it off with a gentle wash. Just use warm water and some mild soap to clean it and the ring should look as good as new.

Leave Commercial Cleaners To Professionals

If the ring is heavily tarnished, you may look for some other solutions other than water and soap. You’ll do a quick internet search and see some commercial cleaners and a few sizzling videos that showcase how powerful these cleaners are and the magnificent results afterwards.

However, keep in mind that commercial cleaners often contain chemicals that could be very dangerous if not handled correctly. So, the best thing to do if the tarnish is too great for you to handle is not to experiment with chemicals, but to take the jewellery to the store and have someone else do it for you.  You’ll pay a little bit, but your rings will be as shiny as ever.

Baking soda and vinegar?

img source: unsplash.com

We’ve all heard about the magical powers of baking soda and apple cider vinegar. Well, it’s once again true. if you don’t want to take your jewellery for professional cleaning, but polishing and warm water aren’t cutting it for you, you may want to create a little DIY cleaning solution.

There are probably a dozen of these homemade recipes for cleaning your sterling silver, but let’s just focus on the best.

A great way to clean your rings and do a cool little science experiment is to soak them in some vinegar and baking soda mixture. First up, fill a large bowl with a cup of white vinegar and add 4 tablespoons of baking soda. Once it gets all bubbly, dink your rings in there for 2 to 3 hours, remove and rinse afterwards with warm water. They should be good as new after that.

Wear ‘Em

The final pro tip may seem like a gimmick, but it really isn’t. Probably the easiest way to keep your rings clean and good looking is to wear them as often as possible. Oils from your skin will coat the rings and keep them protected. Neat, huh?

There are a lot of other ways to keep your rings fresh and clean. From avoiding doing chores and washing dishes with harsh soap to properly storing it. One thing to remember is that even if you notice some darkening, it’s easily fixable. If you clean them every time you see the signs of tarnish, it’ll never get so bad that the professional cleaning is needed. Take care.

1. Hair Accessories

When it comes to hair accessories you are going to equip on your wedding, you will have literally countless options to choose from. Also, you need to decide if you are going to wear them down, up, or in between. Maybe this looks like a decision that is based solely on your style and preferences but believes us when you have so much to choose from, you are bound to have a certain level of uncertainty. The most popular option when it comes to hair accessories is the traditional veil. Don’t be fooled, there are a lot of them you can choose from, so this is not an easy task. You can select the one that is a part of your wedding dress, or you can buy a veil that is completely different but can make a good match with the rest of your style. If you are opting for a wedding that is organized in nature, you can even use some fresh flowers and insert them in your hair. If not, besides veils, you can choose from a wide array of hairpins, clips, combs, headbands, bun wraps, or barrettes.

2. Jewelry

Probably the most obvious of all the bridal accessories is the jewelry. Naturally, two essential pieces of wedding day jewelry are wedding band, and of course, wedding ring. When it comes to the additional jewelry, it is entirely up to your preferences and style. We are going to provide you with some examples, like necklaces, which will look great on your strapless neckline and will complement your dress. However, there are some cases where a detailed necklace might not work too well, so you should opt for some simpler in these cases. We would recommend you not to go overboard with this element. You can look as good with a few carefully chosen pieces than with a lot of them. Maybe even better.

3. Wedding Shoes

It doesn’t matter what kinds of shoes you are looking for, you will need to choose wedding shoes before you try out your dress. The whole point is for these two to match perfectly. There are several things that you need to consider when you are choosing wedding shoes. The first and most important thing is comfort. Just imagine yourself dancing during the whole event wearing uncomfortable shoes. Doesn’t sound too good, right? The second element that you need to consider is, on what kind of wedding you are going to wear. For example, it would be kind of silly to buy some expensive, branded, shoes and wear them at an outdoor wedding. Just imagine yourself going to a wedding that is organized on a beach or in nature, surrounded by flowers, and you are wearing some luxurious shoes. This is not a good idea, you can be sure of that.

4. Wrap or a Jacket
