5 More Versatile Decorating Accessories

You may remember my first post about versatile decorating accessories, called  the 5 Most Versatile Decorating Accessories. Today I’m sharing another 5 versatile decorating accessories that are good to have on hand when inspiration hits. A few strategically placed accessories can really transform the room.

1. Books  

I recently shared an entire post about decorating with books. Books can be used to warm up a room, add height to smaller accessories and fill in any bare spaces in your decor.

2. Plants  

Plants can really give life to a room. Many plants help purify the air such as:  Snake Plants,  English Ivy, Boston Fern and the Peace Lily. Beautiful and functional.

3. White plates

Really, is there anywhere you can’t use a white plate? Besides being a perfect base for seasonal table settings, you can use them as trays for decorative items or hang them up on the wall as part of a display.

5. Water Pitchers

Besides being functional for obvious reasons, they can also serve as utensil holders,  or for displaying flowers. And really they look good all by themselves.
