Rehoboth Beach's home goods stores offer a wealth of decorating ideas and merchandise that can bring your projects to life. So go ahead, unleash your inner interior designer.
A clever mix of accessories is the best way to breathe life into any decorative scheme. A good place to start is with wall décor. Art and photography showcase your family, friends, travel and interests. Mirrors draw attention to your room's vertical planes, add dimension to your décor, and brighten the space. You can also put framed artwork on a mantel, table, sideboard or bureau. Vases, bowls, bottles, baskets and boxes add sculptural form, height, color, pattern and texture. Pillows and throws add comfort as well as texture and color. Don't be afraid to experiment with contrasting colors and patterns and unique fabrics. Swapping your pillows with the season is an affordable way to spruce up the design without breaking the bank. Small items such as candles, paperweights, statues or sculptures can complete the look and add warmth to your space. And don't forget to fill your bookshelves with interesting reading material. Books and magazines not only express your interests but can also be positioned into captivating arrangements.
