Unique Home Accessories and Mirrors: The Finishing Touches

On-trend accents. Unique home accessories show that the little details make a big impact. Consider the power of statement-making wall art: hanging above the sofa or behind the dining table, a bold painting serves as a conversation starter when your friends come over. More of a music buff? Deck out your apartment with framed photos featuring icons from David Bowie and Run DMC to Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger. Or, flank your media console with a few photos of throwback A-listers. No matter what wall art speaks to you, get it framed to draw the eye in.

Rather bring an understated edge to your walls? Instead of creating a gallery wall with prints and paintings, consider creating one with mirrors instead. Mix and match the materials of their frames for an eclectic take, and get creative with their silhouettes, too: a combination of round, rectangular and even octagonal ones gives your apartment an unexpected feel. Even better? The modern mirrors' reflective surfaces give even the coziest spots an open feel. Whether you put them in the entryway, living room, bedroom or bathroom, the unique decor is as functional as it is stylish.

If your windows need a pick-me-up, give them some TLC with on-trend curtains and hardware. To create restful vibes in the master, try blackout drapes in a fun print or moody material—velvet, anyone? If you're going for an airy feel instead, try sheer panels. Either way, highlight the window treatments with rods and finials for a polished look whether matte black or polished nickel speaks to your style.

Looking for some extra oomph? Style your space with smaller accents. For the greenthumb, deck out your shelves with planters filled with botanicals (or faux plants for a maintenance-free option, no judgement). Or, add some color with flowers in vases made of modern materials—think reactive glaze ceramic or brass metallics. For a playful touch, try placing an objet d'art on the coffee table. Whether it's in a quirky animal shape or an abstract silhouette, it's sure to catch the eye.
