Decorating Tip of the Month: How To Accessorize Your Living Room Furniture

At Smitty’s, we want to help you furnish and decorate your home with beautiful, stylish, quality furniture and decor that works — whatever your lifestyle.

 

Each month we will feature a decorating tip to help you achieve your interior decorating dreams.

 

If you have questions or tips that you would like our Smitty’s interior decorators to answer, just let us know.

Did you know that deciding which living room furniture to buy is just the first step? Now it’s time to accessorize!

 

Whether you’ve purchased a sofa, a sectional, or a mix of accent chairs, now you need to integrate your new furniture into your space. One of the best ways to achieve an integrated look is by adding accessories.

 

The experts at Smitty’s put their heads together and came up with these top three ways to accessorize your living room:

 

#1. Add Some Throw Pillows

 

Add some throw pillows, custom or otherwise, into your space -- and not just one or two. You can place throw pillows on your sofa and your accent chairs.

 

Try using different sizes, shapes, or colours to give your space some personality. These pillows will not only look great, but they’ll also help connect all your furniture.

 

#2. Add a Blanket

 

Do not add your grandma's lace to the back and arms! Instead, select a contemporary design that can add visual interest to your space. Place a blanket across your ottoman, or off to one side of your sofa. Consider a blanket in a contrasting colour for some drama.  

 

#3. Change It Up

 

Change around your pillows and blankets throughout the year. This will help to keep your room refreshed. You can choose to have seasonally-themed pieces, or simply adjust the colour palate — try pastels and lighter shades in the spring and deep, rich tones in the fall.

 

Whatever your decorating style, we have lots of great options in our showroom. Visit us at Smitty’s to find your perfect living room furniture accessories.
