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