Ornaments

Human beings have been trying to bring beauty and personality to our homes since the dawn of time. Ornaments are an essential expression of personality. The right ones can help us feel comfortable, experience joy when we see them and be gorgeous in their own right. Contributing a well ordered, domestic design.

Ornaments are perfect for enabling you to realise the kind of theme you want in your home or a particular room. If you love everything nautical then there are ways to bring the memory of the sea air into the most landlocked home, particularly if you are looking for bathroom ornaments. A decorative ship's wheel is a perfect symbol of the sea, propped on a shelf or hung on a wall. An anchor can be a lovely symbol of home and fit in perfectly with the ship’s cabin decor of your space. Miniature fishing boats or a ship in a bottle are a tasteful way to finish off the look.

You might be a determined landlubber who only wants a country cottage look, but ornaments can help you there too. From sweet ceramic shepherdesses and rabbits to ornamental pheasants. You can give a neutrally decorated room the kind of accents that send any occupants mind harking back to a past where the wild was that little bit more personally involved in human life.

Cottages might not be your style, perhaps you’re all about the finer things. You might gravitate towards glass ornaments like faceted glass showpieces, twinkling crystal orbs, Swarovski ornaments and sculptures, finely beaded vases and hand blown glass. You will feel a little more special, even in your own living room and your guests will know that there is a vein of glamour running through your soul.

Not all of us want glitz though and there are ornaments to serve those of us who prefer a more sylvan atmosphere. Sprinkle a little magic with a little fairy cottage, housed inside a rustic log slice. For a child’s room, there is no better amenity than a fairy keeping watch over them from their little cottage. For a fully woodland feel, you could add leaf bowls or a fox figurine. These tiny objects create character, for mere inches of space.

If you’ve travelled or fallen in love with a more sun-baked aesthetic, you might want to look for some African inspiration. Recreate the grasslands with beautiful miniature giraffes or cheeky metal monkey statues, so lifelike you’ll expect to see their tails whip or their long eyelashes droop. Soapstone carvings and sculptures are also a gorgeous, understated way to express your admiration for international interior design.

If you’re looking to put the finishing touches on a peaceful area, meant for you to find respite from the rest of the world, you might want some objects to guide your focus with. You might be most sanguine with a calm Buddha sculpture, sage gaze of a ceramic elephant or a mirrored mosaic or gong. Your personal spiritual leanings are important and ornaments can have deep meaning.

If you want to fill your home with things that remind you of the characters that populate your life, then ornaments like sweet sleeping babies, frolicking kittens or sweet affectionate puppies. These adorable reminders of beloved pets and adorable little ones are an important way to reinforce and display what is meaningful to you, as well as being lovely to look at.

If you’re thinking of more symbolic representations of things that matter to you, then there are sculptures of couples gazing into each other's eyes, dancers spinning on the floor and mothers soothing children. They come in muted neutrals and vivid lifelike detail to suit what sparks joy in you.

Ornaments are a way to express yourself, add life to a room and make a change quickly without having to re-arrange. For so much impact, they are a brilliant investment in your interiors.
