When we get used to a routine we get bored, and so is getting to see the same things for years in our homes, without as much as even change the furniture position. Our homes are supposed to be the sanctuary of all people who live in them, so they therefore require some little tender loving and care every once in a while.
For the season in the interior décor, getting to buy unique home accessories is big time. Even though our lives seem to get busier, going home is the one thing that most of us look forward to at the end of each day, and it can only get better when it is welcoming and has a sense of warmth in it. Of course the dream of every home owner is to have a beautiful home, but this does not come as easy as people think, it takes years of dedication to make it happen-and one can achieve this by thinking outside the box and buying unique pieces for the home décor.
Different people have different tastes, you will therefore find different collect different things to make their home as unique as it can get. I know some friends who are avid collectors of masks.
They have collected masks from all over the world made from different materials and of different sizes, and have used these unique pieces to decorate their home.
Last week in Nairobi, together with a friend we went to visit a shop that sells home accessories, and saw very unique pieces of furniture and accessories. But as I was looking through these unique pieces, I realised that most of the shoppers just passed by these beautiful pieces and went straight to buy the most obvious of things that have been there since time immemorial, and I kept wondering why do people like buying the exact things that they have seen elsewhere, instead of one going an extra to buy something totally different.
There are certainly a lot of items to choose from in the markets and shops. For example getting a unique fixture in the bathroom can be exciting. I saw very beautiful bathroom fixtures at this shop which came in different designs and colours.
One thing that really caught my attention was a bathroom fixture that came in white and black. The toilet seat had a mixture of white and black with cow spots, and then a matching sink came in black.
I had never seen a black sink before, and I must say it was quite a piece. The bath tub came in zebra prints of black and white- this was ingenious mixing all these patterns together, in colours that are not commonly used in the bathroom, and these pieces are truly unique.
Something else that can be an accent to a home décor is a unique chair. I also saw a green swinging chair in this very same shop, I was so taken by this piece that I asked if I could be allowed to sit on it and have a feel. This kind of chair boosts high style and can be extremely versatile considering the fact that it can be used both indoors and outdoors.
This chair was made out from very simple material but with an artistic taste making it hard to wear and tear easily. This is the kind of a unique piece that does not follow the usual trend but has its own unique features and design.
This is one piece that will surely catch attention in your home.
Another unique accessory that one can be multiple used is a room divider. One can decide to break the walls monotony, and instead use a beautiful room divider.
When everybody else is busy putting up a wall between the living room and the kitchen, one can decide to swim against the tides and instead, divide the two rooms with a handcrafted room divider.
This room divider can be used as a wall at the same time a beautiful art to look at.
It does not matter what you are buying, whether it’s a beautiful coloured mug, a hand-woven basket or even a flower vase.
Anything can do for as long as they do not look like that of your next door neighbour. Collect your unique pieces and make your house be the talk of the town.
