Lastly, adding accessories in your space will create layers that will make it feel lived in. Remember if you’re working from large to small then it’s easier to add these finishing touches. Consider art for the walls, pictures, baskets, trays, books, coasters or anything else that might enhance your space.
Now time to shop! Starting with the biggest items first, as it’s easier to place small items afterwards. If you go over your budget, try making substitutions elsewhere so you stay on track. If you’re not in a rush to ‘accessorise’ then keep an eye on your West Elm or CB2 baskets and wait for a sale, otherwise you could visit a local thrift store or shop around for similar pieces. Don’t forget to measure everything before you order! You don’t want to be stuck with a coffee table too big, or a TV unit too small! One thing I did when I bought my desk was to position a blanket down in the same dimensions. That way I could make sure it wasn’t going to be too big or overwhelming for the space.
