Artifacts are basically home decor items that are used to enhance the beauty of your home. These include clocks, paintings, figurines, plants, mirrors, lights, and a lot more. They are movable decorations, that reflect the owner's taste and create a personal atmosphere where they are placed and vary according to the size and shape of the room space and the owner's living habits. Artifacts are accent pieces that you can use to liven up your home. You’ll never come up short when there are so many home accents to choose from. Example of a few accent pieces can include products like a vintage looking clock or a unique wall hanging for a bare wall, some table lamps to illuminate that dark corner etc. Unconventional modern accent pieces add more than character to a room, they elicit conversation. Home is where the heart is, but home décor is how the heart is revealed! Artifacts are special items that have separate form and function. Let us take a look at the different types of artifacts that can be used to enhance your home décor and style. Metal: You can decorate your homes with old antique tools, weaponry, toys made from wire, large size door handles, hinges, old jewelry with an ethnic touch etc. Glass: Vintage bottles, vases and flower pots made out of glass can be used to add a touch of glamour to your home. Ceramic: Kitchenware such as crockery and other decorative objects can be considered as ceramic artifacts. These artifacts are sure to add a touch of elegance to any room you place them in! Faux leather: If leather is your pick, there are plenty of faux leather and hide options that you can choose from. Stone and wood: There are countless possibilities to choose from if you like stone/wood finish artifacts, such as sculptures, wall motifs, plant impressions on stone and sculptural rocks of different shapes and sizes. Such treasures can be displayed near staircases, on landings, sit-outs and living rooms. Timepieces: These play a vital role in enhancing the decor of a house. You will be pleasantly surprised with the designs that span over a variety of styles, colours and materials. You can get old vintage clocks in wood, for example a grandfather clock with a cuckoo bird on it, or you can even have a metal one with intricate designs carved to give a very English feel to your home. Mirrors: One of the most common artifacts we find these days are mirrors. There are so many advantages of using mirrors in a home apart from just using it to look at your reflection. Mirrors make your room bigger and brighter and enhances your home décor and style endlessly. Lamp shades: Everyone uses a desk lamp, but have you ever considered changing the lamp shades? A tiny little change like the lamp shade can bring in an entirely new feel to the home décor. At the end of the day, you can convert pretty much anything into an artifact, like a brass kettle can be turned into a flower pot or an ethnic mirror with a fancy frame or even a crystal decanter to add a touch of class to your home!
