Our homes provide a haven and sanctuary from the everyday world. Rooms in the home should be useful and practical, to be sure, but should also reflect the personality of those living in the home. While some furniture and décor pieces are more utilitarian, a fun twist can be added to any space by adding a few statement pieces. Whether you feature an unusual sideboard or a dramatic and colorful decorative piece, statement pieces can reflect your personality, interests and passions and create a lovely and unique space for you to relax, entertain or slumber.
When adding statement pieces to any area of your home, it is important to remember to exercise moderation. Allow dramatic and uncommon pieces to shine by only featuring a few bold and striking pieces in each space. This careful partnership of more neutral items and intense pieces allows for a careful balance of beauty that does not overwhelm.
