Pin Away Wednesdays: Decorative Accessories and Interior Styling Ideas

How to decorate any space with stylish decorative accessories


Welcome back friend for a nother post in my Pin Away Wednesdays series! Today I am sharing highlights from my “Decorative Accessories and Interior Styling” Pinterest board. On this board I pin ideas for styling vignettes, mantels, tabletops, etc. using candlesticks, baskets, books, trinkets and treasures.  The board features a mix of non-seasonal, vintage and modern accessories that can be used together to create stylish, up-to-date looks.  I first shared this post around this same time last year, but I have just updated it with some new images of fresh decorative accents for 2020. Here are some of my favorite images from the board. Feel free to pin away! *This post contains affiliate links.



When you think of “decorative accessories” and “interior styling,” what kind of objects or vignettes come to mind? As an avid vintage collector and decorator I immediately think of carefully curated vintage collections or a few trendy decor pieces that can blend together to make a home look and feel stylish and welcoming at the same time.

I end up mixing and matching styles since most of my decor is thrifted and I just buy whatever “speaks to me.” I always find a way to use found objects in our home regardless of the “style category.” Likewise, my Decorative Accessories and Interior Styling Pinterest board is a mix of many different styles that I love.

Trays are perfect for tables and ottomans. Candlesticks/candles, flowers, books, houseplants and unique found objects can all work together harmoniously in a styled tray arrangement.

Vintage books or deconstructed books are perfect for filling in gaps in a vignette or adding height. You can pick up books at the dollar store and simply rip off the covers and tie up bundle of twine for quick and inexpensive “vintage-trendy” decorative accents.

Hi friends! Hope you’re all having a great week. ❤️ Thought I’d share a little before and after of this corner for #transformationtuesday…


This image is full of beautiful decorative accessories and interior styling ideas. I love the demijohn with a single branch of greenery in the entry way and the layered rugs, blanket ladder, vintage oil painting above the mantel and candlesticks on the mantel.  Cozy pillows and a throw make the room seem so welcoming.

Dough bowls of all shaped and sizes are so versatile in decor. They can be filled with various items and changed seasonally to keep things interesting.



This room is harmonious with the cottage feel to it with the raw wood, and natural tones. The use of greenery throughout adds to the theme making it consistent and harmonious throughout the room.
