The Home Accessories Our Staffers Can’t Get Enough Of

Refresh your interiors with these editor-approved staples.

Once you've established design sense in a home, it's a rather sizable financial and time commitment to shift that direction. Subtle alterations through the use of funky decor accessories are much more feasible. Not to mention, it's always a treat to shop for them. So we've asked our staffers to reveal the home accessories they've sprinkled around their houses and apartments that reveal a bit about their personality. From vivacious throws to girly place mats to timeless vases, discover how the team populates the empty spaces in their home with their favorite items below.

Louxor Pencil Holder

Decorative details can turn a work-from-home setup from a nook into an executive's corner office. While my standing desk might not be the most elegant, the objects that adorn it certainly are. As it turns out, a little touch of crystal can really go a long way.


Zebre Camoufle Change Tray

I love keeping a few of my jewels and keepsakes on my nightstand in a decorative porcelain tray. A piece like this can add an artistic touch to an otherwise boring corner in any home. As a bonus, trays also always help my clutter look chic.


Socrate Throw

We've furnished our first home with neutrals and muted colors. The beige, grey, and navy play well with each other and avoid too much of a clash with the impactful artwork that we'll own one day. But right now that means we're desperately seeking color—so multicolor throws like this are a must!

Napery Scalloped-Edge Place Mat & Napkin 8-Piece Set

This pink-and-green placemat set is so cheerful and fun, and I'm loving the irony that its Palm Beach vibe could bring to an otherwise dark space, such as a dark wood or metal table. Personality place mat? Check.

In The Roundhouse

Le Bain Bath Mat

Finally, a bath mat that fits my unfortunate "girl who never lets you forget she studied abroad" persona. I simply cannot resist this one!

Mini Sheepskin

Though I am a self-proclaimed maximalist when it comes to interiors, I value the softness that this sheepskin would bring to a living room when juxtaposed with a statement chair or couch—plus, cozy is key.

Yumi Table Lamp

Table lamps really do add a different level of ambiance to a room versus overhead lighting. I'm obsessed with the subtle texture of this handmade shade and how it sits atop the simplistic iron base. It's the perfect addition to elevate your WFH setup.


Santorini Vase

I am a firm believer that fresh flowers are vital to any space, so I am always on the hunt for more vases. This one from Arhaus is ideal because not only can it hold a hefty arrangement, but it also looks chic with nothing in it—a statement in and of itself.


More Than Just a House: At Home with Collectors and Creators

Alex Eagle, creative director and native Londoner, has compiled a truly unique set of homes that vary in styles, making this book the perfect source of continued inspiration. Books obviously double as decor and I am always rotating new ones on the coffee table, but this one has been a mainstay for a few months now.

Sun-Kissed Landscape Rug

Rugs are a must-have when it comes to home decor for me, and I've had my eye on this West Elm pick for a while now. The colorful palette and vibrant patterns help soothe a busy mind while also being very aesthetically pleasing.

Squiggle Vase

I love having fresh flowers in my apartment and showing them off in colorful, interesting-looking vases. This multi-hued one from The Sette kind of looks like a piece of art; I like how you can see the variations in tone and the fact that it doesn't look "perfect"—the slight variations in shape make it more visually interesting.

Vera Ceramic Side Table

No matter where you place this side table—in your bedroom, near your entryway—it turns the sophistication up a notch. It looks incredible on its own, but I'd either place a large plant on top or a few small, watercolor glass trays and a lamp to add depth to the decor.

Fiore Spirit Decanter

A vintage-looking crystal decanter adds a more traditional aspect to my bar cart. I scoured a similar vintage option and have decanted my whisky into it. Once I pour myself a glass from this and turn on an episode of Peaky Blinders, I'm really in my element.

Williams Sonoma

Bookends Italian Marble Made in Italy Mid Century

As I am an avid reader and don't possess a single large bookshelf in my home, I have books spilling over every surface. So a nice set of bookends is a way to pretend a row of books at the back of my dresser is a purposeful decor tactic (and not an excuse for lack of proper storage).


Everyday Tapers

Despite all the trendy candle shapes right now, I love a classic taper. I have a few different sets of candlesticks and holders that I place on the mantle, the dining table, and shelves, so I like to keep a rotation of tapers handy at all times.
