For me, no home is complete without an array of accessories and ornamentation that will create a finishing touch in any room of the home. This season is set to see a huge rise in interest surrounding ARTISAN ACCESSORIES that will give your home a bespoke personal touch and will provide an alternative to mass produced, high street accessories. There are such a wide variety of online artisan companies and individuals as well as local artists that you can easily locate to find strategic pieces that will be perfect for your home interior.

Online sites such as Etsy and Facebook are a great place to start when looking for artisan home accessories. Many artists and craftsmen will showcase their products on these sights and provide a quick and easy service that does not even require you to leave your home. This form of sale allows you to speak to the artists directly and can mean that you can talk them through any specifics or alterations you may wish to make regarding the product. You will find that many sellers will offer their products at very reasonable prices, particularly those who are just starting out and they may offer flash sales and end of line clearances that allow you to snap up a bargain.

Craft markets are a hub of artisan products and accessories and usually showcase a broad range of items and accessories that are suited to a wide variety of home interiors. Pottery is always a favourite among craft markets and can come in simple clay forms or hand painted designs that you can select to suit your interior style and colour palette. Another great form of artisan accessories that you are sure to find at any craft market is a selection of knitted, crocheted, embroidered or patchwork style quilts, blankets, cushions and throws that are sure to create a unique and cosy feel in any living room or bedroom interior.

While most artisan accessories are relatively inexpensive if you feel like splashing out a little then you could source some bespoke artists and craftsmen who will design something completely unique and personal to you and your home. If you wish to add a statement piece of artwork to your home then there are many local artists that will take on board your ideas, colour schemes and themes to create you a striking piece of wall art or a sculpture that will take centre stage within your home. Artisan accessories do not only have to be aesthetic items. They can also be practical and functional items that can become useful in strategic areas of the home. These can include things like bespoke, kitchen storage, wine racks and taps, handcrafted ceiling lights and lamps or items such as handcrafted bathroom shelving or etched shower screens that are sure to create a perfect blend of style and practicality within your chosen room.
