Get the Modern Classic Look for Less!
My favorite home decorating style is a mix of contemporary modern and classic traditional. I think the two styles pair so well together and create a fresh, and casual atmosphere in a home. Whenever I’m browsing through Pinterest, “Modern Classic” is a style that I see all throughout designer homes. I love the look, but I don’t love the price!
I’m a big believer that you can have a stylish home on a regular budget. There’s no reason that you need to spend $90 on a pillow cover (for example) in order to have a beautiful home. That’s just crazy! So, I decided it was time to start figuring out how I could get that modern classic look for less.
Today I’m sharing my favorite knick-knack collected styling accessories.
In order to make a room look lived in and put together, you need to style it a little. Adding accessories to a space in a purposeful way makes a room feel thought out and pulled together.
Styling accessories can be used in just about every room to add some character and charm. Accessories that have a “collected” feel to them work the best.
Your accessories shouldn’t all match, they should look like they were collected and curated over time. You want to get that look of items that are different, but still all work together in a cohesive way.
Knick-knacks are great filler pieces to add to your groupings of decor. If you think your shelf is missing that one final piece, maybe you need to add a knick-knack. Here are some of my favorites!

Collected Styling Accessories – Knick-Knacks
These wood bookends are a great mix of modern and classic. I love that they add a typographical element to home decor and the wood tone adds a nice warmth.
This decorative oversized jack is a playful, fun piece. It would look great on top of a stack of books.
Geodes are a really great way to bring organic elements into your home. These gorgeous bookends are unique and the colors are so pretty!
This picture frame is so cute! I love that it’s shaped like a house. The mango wood and whitewashed wood keep it from looking too kitschy. It looks sophisticated enough to fit in with either modern or traditional decor.
This decorative oversized dice is another playful and fun piece. I love that it’s made out of mango wood!
This set of marble coasters is both stylish and functional. They will look great when they’re being used and also just in a stack on an end table.
I love this modern, fresh sailboat made from metal and wood. It’s a unique piece that is neutral enough to fit in with most decor. It would also look amazing on a bookshelf where you need a tall knick-knack to fill the space.
These modern candle holders are so pretty! I love the black metal and the open, airy design. These are really trendy right now, but they have a classic design that looks sophisticated but also casual.
I hope you enjoyed my latest finds! Have a great week!
