Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Add some zest to your tabletop or safari chic to your shelves with the latest trend in home decor: animal accents. From porcelain pigs to geometric gators, animal accessories are a fun way to add pops of color and a quirky edge to your home. Here are eight (landlord-approved) animals to take your shelf, mantel, or menagerie!
For the latest trend in decor, turn to nature. Recently seen in innovative design like this Tribeca home, quartz, agate, and stone decor accessories provide an organic way to accent your home with jewel-tone beauty. Earthy patterns and one-of-a-kind pieces add edge to coffee tables, consoles, and tabletops. Smoothly polished or rough around the edges, these eight pieces bring the best of nature into your space.
If you read my Color Theory slideshow about my ideas for decorating with people, you know I'm working on integrating a set of hand-me-down purple Louis XIV chairs into my living room, which I received from my mother.
I tossed around a lot of ideas for bringing more of the hue into my home, but you all seemed to vote for accents like throws, pillows, and artwork over large expanses of purple in wallpaper, rugs, etc. So I thought I'd round up some purple accents and decorative accessories to help me bring more purple into my life. I'm loving this Cabled Cashmere Throw ($450) because it's classic and understated, but it's a little more than I'm willing to spend. The World Market Vidrio Glass Table Lamp ($60) wouldn't be a big expense, and I love how it evokes the look of a vintage perfume bottle. Check out my other picks below and let me know which is your fave!
