Small accessories and other details in a room can make a house feel like a home. If you’ve installed Talavera tiles, a copper sink, or copper bathtub, some matching towels and a few ceramic accessories can add a needed hint of personality to any room.
To contribute to an American Southwest aesthetic you could add a colorful ceramic lizard or a brightly painted toothbrush holder to match a bathroom composed of Talavera tiles and a copper sink. A lizard or a ceramic sun with a face can also make a bathroom more kid-friendly.
Another decoration that will add personality to any room in your house is an oil painting of a pastoral landscape or a different traditional subject. For renters and younger home owners who don’t have an extensive collection of objects that add a sense of age and class to your home, an oil painting creates a sense of permanence.
The difference between the accessories mentioned previously and the decorations you have laying around your house is that a ceramic toothbrush holder will match a copper sink and a wall of Talavera tiles.
Copper and ceramic are both very old Mexican art forms that have been passed down through generations of artisans. Buying a ceramic painted lizard may seem no different from a decoration you could pick up at any retail store but the craftsmanship and tradition of ceramics made in Mexico will bring more personality to your home.
Other accessory options include ceramic pull knobs, which can be a great way to help a cabinet or cupboard to match surrounding tile. The knobs are often colorfully painted and even if you don’t have a copper tile wall for them to match, ceramic pull knobs are a colorful accent for any room.
An easy way to help the room you are renovating have an appealing aesthetic is to purchase a package of matching ceramic accessories. Buying a group of accessories like this is also a great way to save money by buying in bulk.
