4 Must Have Home Decor Pieces

I have a little home décor inspiration for you today. These are my top 4 items that I think are timeless and elegant and could work in any home. I create a video showing these items in action if you want to check it out.

1 // Porcelain

The first type of item that I think is timeless and elegant is white porceline décor. I have these 2 porcelain birds that are antiques and were my grandmothers. They are probably from the 1940s or 50s. The fact they have been around so long really show that this style really transfers from generation to generation. My grandma loved birds and so do I, so I love having these in my office because they remind me of her.


I also have this little white porceline vase here with the succulent in it. I got this at Target about a year ago.

Then on the other side of the bookshelf I have another white bird that is from Hobby Lobby and is also porceline. White porceline whether in décor pieces like these or dishes – they are always classic and elegant and will work over the years no matter if your color scheme or home changes, they will always match.


2 // Dining Room Tray

The next item I want to mention that is timeless and elegant is a tray for the dining room table. If you have a nice neutral tray it can transition from fall to Christmas without a problem. You probably recognize this tray because I have used it in all my tablescapes and it helps to hold any décor pieces right in there so they don’t go rolling all over the dinner table! The fact that I have coordinating chargers under the plates really helps tie the whole look together and can be reused over and over again for each season. So, the tray and matching chargers are a great way to add some timeless elegance to your home. 


3 // Candle Holders

The bronze candle holders on the dining room table can work throughout the seasons as well. Neutral candleholders, whether they are white, grey, brown or bronze, or whatever neutral color goes best with your home – these candleholders can be switched up throughout the home. So, I could take these bronze ones on the dining room and switch them out with the wooden ones I have on my fireplace mantle to change up the look a bit. Having a few sets of neutral candleholders gives you some flexibility and they will always match whatever you have going on with the rest of your décor.

4 // Coffee Table Decor

Lastly, I want to mention coffee table décor that is timeless and elegant. I think having a few nice looking large coffee table books is a great idea because they can act as a stand like I have done here. They are great for stacking. You could place a large box on top or a small item like this clock. The coffee table books are really elegant, versatile and act as a nice solid base to other décor items. You may have some really good ones in your home already. Check underneath your paper book jackets and you may find a really nice neutral linen cover like these have.

So, there were a few of the items I think have timeless elegance in the home. I hope I gave you a couple decorating ideas and I would love to know in the comments section below what you consider to be a home décor item that has timeless elegance.
