How to make the most of your home wares

27 February 2014, by Rachael Ciccarelli

2014 Homewares

Image source: www.pinterest.com.

After a weekend spent moving house, I’ve been in heavy re-decoration mode: seizing the ability to breathe new life into an existing space and shuffling all my home wares about, finding holes that need to be filled. I’m big on home wares – they’re an oft inexpensive, very easy and always effective way to revitalise your house and add a sense of personality to the space. They are to the house what accessories are to an outfit, and unsurprisingly, I can’t get enough of them.

Colour blocking

2014 Homewares 1

Image sources: Salt and Pepper Oink money box, $9.95, from Myer; Trinket dish – fox head, $25, from Pigeonhole; Chevron camomile throw, $69.95, from Laura Ashley; Salt and Pepper Fiesta plate, $9.95, from Myer; Cube vase, $12.95, from Pigeonhole; Ladelle Mila Jacquard tea towels, $8.95, from Myer.

A failsafe tip for effective home styling? Colour blocking. Grouping objects like vases, books and crockery of the same colour together in a book case, or picking a vivid accent colour for your room and incorporating it through furniture and homewares is an always-stylish way to revitalise your living space – and to display pieces that might have been hiding away in cupboards.

Prints and patterns

2014 Homewares 2

Image sources: Orla Kiley House lamp, $499.95, from Myer; Red Southsea Stripe mug, $19.95, from Laura Ashley; Peony Garden cushion, $49.95, from Laura Ashley; Pattern blanket, $79, from Pigeonhole; Sorrento floor rug, $34.97, from Laura Ashley.

Be it feminine and sweet, wild bohemian or graphic and bold, be not afraid of prints in the home. Printed home wares are an especially easy way to add serious life to a room without committing to a major piece of furniture – just make sure that you pick one loose theme and stick to it, or things can get a little crazy.
