Home accents for mom

Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space! We all love our moms, so with Mother’s Day right around the corner we thought we’d look at some of the best (and most decorative) ways to show moms everywhere how fabulous they are. We scoured the web for unique and stylish gift ideas sure to please your favorite lady and remind her how special you think she is.

Home accents for mom

6Pearl pillow

We couldn't resist the unique look of this reversible pillow from CB2 ($25), featuring a woman holding a string of pearls. One side is white, the other black and no matter which way you display it; this pillow will add a touch of playful charm to any room in the house.

7Mosaic mirror

Add some decorative depth to the hallway or living room with this ocean-inspired mosaic mirror from Pier 1 Imports ($150). Mom will love the eye-catching cut-glass design and the soothing color combination of blues and greens, perfect for summer.

8Decorative tray

This striking stoneware tray from Anthropologie ($38) might just be too pretty to serve on. It features delicate sculpted flowers inspired by icing – rather like the buttercream blooms you find atop cakes and other edible confections. And yes, it looks (almost) good enough to eat!

9Jewelry storage

Give Mom a reason to show off all her beautiful bling with this ornate jewelry stand from Urban Outfitters ($78). She'll love the spring-inspired tree and blossom design and delicate enamel finish. You'll love how happy she is with your thoughtful gift choice.


Grab the latest bestseller you know Mom will love and package it with these playful bookends from CB2 ($50). Made to look like the two halves of one 3-dimensional tree, these fun and funky bookends can really make a neutral bookcase pop.

Other gift ideas for mom

DIY spa experience: Create a spa package fit for the hardest-working woman you know – fill a decorative basket with the best lotions, scrubs and bath salts you can find, along with a plush terrycloth robe, hydrating facial mask and scented candles.

Cook and clean: Go to Mom's equipped with the ingredients for her favorite meal, a nice bottle of wine and something sweet to finish up. Show off your culinary skills and then let Mom relax while you tackle the dishes and leave the kitchen sparking clean.

Lunch and learn: Sign the two of you up for a class you know Mom would love – pottery, Italian cooking, photography – whatever you know she's been meaning to try but hasn't. Then treat her to lunch at her favorite restaurant.
