5 Decor Elements Every Home Needs
You can work on these design ideas—no matter the size of your home
There are no rules when it comes to decorating your home—after all, style is a personal choice. While that may be true, there are certain design components that you can't skip. Without these elements, a room might lack the boost that could have made it stand out or feel more put together. To help you out, here's a handy list of these must-haves and a few tips on how you can incorporate it into your space:
1. A proper working area
Whether you use it for last minute work assignments, long studying sessions, or simply as a command center, a functional working area is an important part of the home. If you're working with a smaller space, you can style a multipurpose nook instead—extend your television console with a spacious desk and maximize the space above with a shelf where you can store your essentials.
2. A quirky decor piece
Every room needs an interesting piece that can spark conversation among guests—yes, even the most elegant and regal of spaces. If huge, eye-catching sculptures aren't your style, feel free to go for a minimalist-inspired item such as a geometric lamp (as seen in photo) and place it in an inconspicuous spot to keep it subtle.
3. A statement bed
Who says you cannot spruce up a small bedroom with a big bed and interesting partitions? To keep your sleeping space open and airy, make sure to use pieces with clean lines and minimal color. Add impact with printed wallpaper or take it a step further with a 3D wall panel (as seen in photo).

4. An accent chair
Give your living area display added depth and personality with a striking seat that will catch the attention of anyone who enters the room. Play up the drama by surrounding it with simple pieces in the same color palette to keep the look balanced.
5. A classic vignette
Whether it's a collection of curated art books or eclectic knickknacks, everyone can appreciate a nice vignette—it's a feature that you can find in any well-designed home. Instead of the usual side table, consider using a tall ladder shelf that lets you display more pieces in one place.
