I’ve been doing client installs for over a decade now, and it’s only recently that I’ve really started to notice that there are a few things that I make sure to include in virtually every install I conduct. I thought it’d be fun to do a quick round up of some of those non-negotiable finishing touches that really help transform your house into a home. Following are five accessories every home needs, as far as I’m concerned.

Layers of blankets are one of those things that instantly warms up even the coolest of spaces. They’re the secret sauce to making your space feel cozy, comfortable, and completely inviting. They’re definitely high atop my list of accessories every home needs.
Whether they’re used on your coffee table to corral all of your goodies, or used in your washroom to keep all of your perfumes in order, trays are the workhorses of the accessory world, and I used them in abundance. They instantly make a space feel more pulled together and organized as they help connect all of those loose bits and baubles into one cohesive whole.

Much like trays, boxes are your very best friend. Not only are they beautiful when stacked on your bookshelves, or sitting proudly on your coffee table or nightstand, but they also pull double duty and act as hidden storage. They’re the perfect example of form meeting function, and I’m firmly on board.

I will be the first to admit that I’m a bit of a ceramics addict. They’re the first thing I hunt for when we’re travelling, and they most definitely spark all of the joy when I find the right piece. I love that they inject shape, texture, colour, and interest into a space. And I find I’m partial to those of the handmade variety. There’s something about a one of a kind piece of pottery that just feels incredibly soulful.
And last on my list of non-negotiable accessories that every home should have: plants and greenery. They instantly breathe life into a space, and I’ll never fail to be amazed by how quickly a room is transformed the minute I bring in the house plants and arrangements.
