Transform Your Room from Ordinary to Extraordinary

Accessories are what give an interior personality and helps to define the ultimate punch your room deserves. Without this layer of design a room can feel empty, cold, and ordinary. Accessories can help tell your story from your families passions to personality. So here are some fundamentals to add color and vitality to your rooms! Add one of our talented design consultants and use Today’s Homes Accessory Express program with no risk!


Once you have established your furniture layout and paint colors choose a color theme from what exists in the room. Pull out a few of the key colors for your accessories from the fabrics and walls that will add interest and coordinate with the existing color theme.


Your walls are critical and create your backdrop and focal point. Mirrors, and art work can be various sizes and displayed as groupings. Create interest with a colorful theme, there is no right or wrong on the subject matter. Wall décor is a fantastic way to show your homes personality. Hint: The key subject items that you hang should be 57 to 60 inches from the floor to the center of the piece.


Floors are another blank canvas to pull it all together. This is a great way to add texture and color, add an area rug just as if you were treating it like a wall. Size does matter, you can choose to put your furniture on top of rug or the most cost effective way is to buy a smaller rug and keep the furniture legs off. From hand knotted Persian rugs to today’s incredibly well priced machine made program rugs, this is a critical element to any room!

Lamps & Lighting

Choosing the right lamp design is probably the most fun part of accessorizing. Here you get the chance to really express your sense of style rather than simply light your space. Table lamps, sconces, and chandeliers will all add character to your room. Experiment with lamp styles and finishes, most retailers will allow you to return or exchange your lamps until you find the perfect look!

Bottom Line

Express yourself, and have fun with this process! You are the curator of this museum make it yours! Be sensitive to scale without overdoing it Tell your story, mixing fun new items you have purchased with personal items that tell your story, and your guests will be impressed!

When my parents, Sigmund and Audrey Lenchner, both Taylor Allderdice graduates, founded Today’s Home, they had a vision to enrich the lives of area families by bringing true quality home furnishings to Western Pennsylvania. Over the decades, Today’s Home has emerged as a true “family business” success story.
