Every so often, guests in my home can’t help but comment on the unique accessories they spot. “Where did this candle holder come from? What’s the brand? Was it pricey?” Questions like these have become a familiar refrain. Indeed, home accessories play a pivotal role in shaping our living spaces. It’s about more than just aesthetics—it’s about finding the perfect blend of color, texture, and balance that brings a room to life.
Contrary to popular belief, achieving this doesn’t always mean splurging. The art lies in blending high-end pieces with budget-friendly finds, giving your space a look that’s both personalized and chic.
For me, the joy of interior design lies in pairing luxury brands with treasures from stores like HomeGoods. It’s like a delightful dance between splurge and save, where each piece complements the other.
Michael Aram is an artist I’ve admired for years. Renowned for his handcrafted designs, he infuses every piece with unparalleled creativity. One of my treasured items is his gold orchid cocktail napkin holder, which sits gracefully on my kitchen counter beside a simple lemon candleholder from HomeGoods. This juxtaposition elevates my kitchen’s elegance, making a statement in subtlety.
Similarly, Michael Aram’s garden luxe candy dish finds its place next to a humble supermarket houseplant in my living space. This dish, crafted in stainless steel and adorned with a gold stem, snails, and semi-precious stones, encapsulates the enchantment of nature. My son is especially fond of it, the snails reminding him of the vibrant critters that emerge with spring’s arrival.
And then there’s the allure of scented candles. What is it about a fragrance candle that feels so enchanting? For me, Michael Aram’s home fragrances capture the essence of tranquility. Lighting up the Enchanted Garden candle is like inviting serenity into my space, its aroma weaving tales of whimsy.
Not to forget, the Gold Orchid drink coaster set, a showstopper in my living room that not only enhances the space but also safeguards my table. There’s something incredibly soothing about winding down with a glass of wine, its base nestled on a Michael Aram coaster.
The magic lies not just in the pieces you choose, but in the stories they tell and the ambiance they create. Embrace your creativity, let your imagination run wild, and most importantly, stay true to yourself.
