State­ment Pieces Must-have pieces to take a liv­ing space from drab to fab

Malaysia Tatler Homes - - SPACES -

We urge you to take some well-de­signed risk with some bold pieces that are made to make a great im­pres­sion and state­ment about your good taste

Your whole life, you have heard that first im­pres­sions are im­por­tant, and that you might never get a sec­ond chance to make one. Un­known to many, those adages ap­ply to in­te­rior de­sign as well. Since the liv­ing room is most likely the first area our vis­i­tors lay eyes on, in­cor­po­rat­ing state­ment pieces within helps, not only with an­chor­ing the space, but also to im­press. As we are look­ing to make an im­pact, it is ad­vis­able to set a lim­i­ta­tion on the num­ber of com­pet­i­tive el­e­ments within the liv­ing area. Too many eye-catch­ing de­signs will most likely have a re­verse ef­fect, cre­at­ing dis­trac­tions rather than a fo­cal point. This is es­pe­cially rec­om­mended for the com­mit­ment-phobes. Choose to play up one fea­ture at a time, ei­ther a clas­sic form with an ex­cit­ing colour or pat­tern, or a dra­matic shape in a ba­sic solid colour. State­ment pieces make a per­fect guide for dec­o­rat­ing the rest of your liv­ing room too. When in doubt, pull out your colour wheel and choose ac­cents that are com­ple­men­tary – anal­o­gous or even con­trast­ing. It will help balance things up.
