Making a Statement

Home décor has a special place in our hearts because it’s where we get to express our styling preferences and personality. After all, the place where you live should reflect your most authentic self and be somewhere you are proud of.

Whether we consider interior or outdoor styling, one of the main challenges is making it stand out. Your décor should make a statement; it should be your homes spokesperson. But how can you achieve an aesthetic that talks?

You give it expression! There are a plethora of ways for making a statement and one option is by creating statement walls. This can be done with texture and colour which we will explain in more detail or it can simply be by adding multiple small art pieces, unique picture frames, etc.  Another great option is to install a few hanging shelves and decorate with some faux plants and small unique colourful pieces.

Our favourite way of making an impact, is by adding statement pieces. Much like your accessories, statement pieces have unique designs that are meant to stand out even in a room full of interesting décor.

There are several ways to achieve this:

Statement Wall Art:

You can opt for an accent mirror, a large painting, or unique tapestries to decorate a large wall in your living or dining rooms. Such items automatically draw attention to themselves and make your décor stand out.

 

Statement Décor:

Your room’s interior is excellent for statement pieces. You can choose a copper vase and set it in the most visible part of the room or get uniquely designed sculptures, art pieces, or accessories. Make your statement décor have some connection to the rest of the theme you are following.

 

Statement Furniture:

Furniture is one of our favourite ways of making a statement through styling. Sectional sofas are the most popular choice for modern styling and you can also choose statement cabinets, ottomans, and even statement dining tables. You have unlimited options!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Style an Accent Wall

Accent walls are amazing because they are automatically the centre of attention when decorated properly. Your accent wall can have a stone-based or wood-based texture, or it can be a different colour from the rest, which will set it apart.

Irrespective of how you choose to make it different, the key is finding ways to bring out its significance. You can do this by arranging furniture with contrasting colours in front or decorating it with the right wall art. Featured products available at Harvey Norman

Play With Colour

Colours can make or break your styling and using them smartly will make your rooms look special. The most practical way to go about this is to use colour theory to know what goes with what.

You can choose to have a splash of colour in your living room or arrange it all in various shades of a particular colour, depending on your preference. The secret here is authenticity. Whatever you choose should resonate with you the most because the point is for it to reflect your personality. Featured products available from Snooze

Rugs are Rad!

There is a good reason why rugs are often featured completely separately. It’s because they have their very own personality and expression.

Due to their typical placements, rugs often attract attention and help connect the multiple styling aesthetics at play. They can also help express your expression. For example, a Persian rug will show your appreciation for the finer things in life while an indigenous design will help you connect to your heritage. Featured products available at Harvey Norman

Don’t be shy to mix things up!

Matching things is the norm and we are here to tell you that it is perfectly okay to mix things up sometimes. If you like rustic furniture but want to maintain a minimal aesthetic, mix the two. Your interior design will feature a minimal aesthetic with rustic furnishings, drawing focus to each piece you have placed.

Additionally, you can also furnish the entire house minimally but have one space that is a cluster of complementary décor, colours, and objects. This space will become your interior design statement.

Last and certainly not least, try recycling your décor. With an added focus on sustainable living, we need to think of ways to include sustainability in our individual choices. Some options are: to, shift your décor around the house to refresh the look without needing to buy more items, recycle your décor and redesign them into a new piece altogether or upscale existing furniture with small yet obvious new additions.

We hope you enjoyed going through our home décor suggestions and are already brimming with ideas about changing things up. We thankfully have everything covered, and you can easily find statement worthy décor in our suggestions.
