To be honest, most of my home decor has been acquired out of necessity, not with as much thought as I would like. A lot of it is disposable -- stuff I bought in my early-mid twenties to fill space.\r\n\r\nThe majority of the pieces I love the most were gifts. One of my students gave me this giant multi-colored vase (I used to teach undergrads). Although a very thoughtful gesture, at the time, I thought it was a totally random gift. I didn't really think I'd have a spot for it. Over 9 years later, it's one of my favorite home accents.\r\n\r\nIn my 30's, I've realized that all home decor should speak to me as much as that gifted vase. If I do need to add new style home accents, I try to find things that are really special, unique or inspiring to me. With that special quality in mind, I selected 8 stylish home accents, all under $100. Some are conversation pieces, others are stylish but super practical. I'd love to add any of these pieces to make my home feel more special.\r\n\r\nPillow \u2013 DENY Designs - $50\r\nWall Shelf \u2013 Dayna B - $29\r\nPill Boxes \u2013 One Kings Lane - $39\r\nWall Hooks \u2013 Pottery Barn - $69\r\nMirror \u2013 Safavieh - $96\r\nBud Vase \u2013 Lunares - $49\r\nOttoman \u2013 Thomas Paul - $70\r\nBowl Set \u2013 Cake Boss - $45\r\n\r\nDo you have a favorite home accessory?
