Undoubtedly, accessories play a big role in interior design: vases, interesting details, multi-colored decorative pillows, figurines, etc. So that they do not become simple "dust collectors", it is not necessary to invite a designer. With this task, if desired, you can handle yourself. Here the main thing is to sustain the decorations in a single style that would not stand out from the general interior of the room or the whole house.
