Express Your Style With Pillows Accessories and Art

How to dress up your home with pillows accessories and art.



A house reflects those who live in it. Express your style through the interior of your home. By adding pillows, accessories, and art you can give your interior that personal touch and a polished finished look. Houses can sometimes look unfinished or lack a personal touch that expresses your lifestyle best. Using pillows, accessories, and art can amplify and enhance every room. A little hint of your personality can really show through when you carefully decorate.  It can be hard to know what to put where and making different accessories flow in the room. With help from our top designers, you can transform any room. Follow along to hear some of our designer’s favorite tips and tricks.




Pillows are an absolute must! Pillows can act in many ways like adding a pop of color, a cozy feel, or an elegant look. They can allow you to bring a space to life by adding color or pattern. This is a great way to add personality to a neutral sofa or chair without being overwhelming. We use soft and simple pillows to calm down wild patterns on sofas or chairs and vice versa. Vibrant color or pattern is not for everyone, however, you can obtain the same finished feel by adding texture or shapes into your pillows. Consider adding a faux fur pillow or a sphere-shaped pillow to a neutral sofa, the textures and shapes play off each other creating unique character.

At Kern & Co. we are all about mixing textiles to create beautiful spaces that are one of a kind. When designing pillows we utilize fringe, cords, velvets, linens, and more to make custom pillows that are perfect for your space. With every color palette available and every pattern imaginable, the options are endless.



Just like in fashion, a home is not complete without the perfect accessories. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the endless choices and where to even start but that is where we come in to help. Choose accessories based on your style preference. If your style is more conservative consider going with some simple and elegant pieces that are timeless. If you’re outgoing and love statements, try mixing in accessories that are wild and unexpected. Besides looking beautiful, most accessories serve a purpose. Boxes and trays can be used to store remotes, games, coasters and more, to create a clean atmosphere everyone will enjoy. One of our favorite accessories to place on a kitchen island is a large one-of-a-kind onyx bowl. Each onyx bowl is unique in color, size, and shape making it a sight to see as well as a functional bowl to fill with your favorite fruits.

Let’s talk metals, a lot of people will tell you not to mix finishes but we have to disagree. We love mixing brass and nickel, not only does it add to the personality of your home, it keeps things interesting. And as an added bonus, mixing metals is a popular interior design trend in 2021. The best accessories are those that catch your eye. It is important to think of the pieces that compliment your furniture and will work functionally in your home.

Every home is different from the way we live to the way we choose to express ourselves. When picking out accessories choose a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors. Accessories are another form of art, that should bring you joy and reflect your individual style. A house is never complete without a beautiful selection of luxury accessories. There are so many ways to personalize your home with elegant and simple accessories that will make a room more bold and special.  As some would say “The beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”  Accessorizing is always the final but most important step in making every room looking finished in any home.




Art comes in many shapes, sizes, and forms. From sculptures to paintings, art can amplify your personality within your home. Art can really change the feel of a room.  It can add color, speak as a centerpiece, and create conversation. Art is interpreted differently by everyone making it a unique way to add personality to your home. At our showroom located in Solana Beach, California our original artwork curated by Susan Spath herself is on display. Every piece creates conversation and pleasure.
