Have you ever waked past a piece of furniture that you knew would make a bold statement? A piece that screams you and your design sensibilities, but you struggle to find a space to put it in that will make it stand out and do justice to its beauty. There are no rules when it comes to decorating for and around your statement making furniture, like a stunning painting, a gorgeous sculpture, an elegant loveseat, but there are some tips you can follow to help give you direction and make the process a little easier.
Tip 1: Clash and Match
It’s easy to get carried away when it comes both matching and clashing. So you need to decide what you’re matching and what you’re clashing. You can match patterns and clash with colours or vice versa. You can do the same with your approach. Try juxtaposing organic with geometric or dark with light, as long as you’re not taking away from the accent you’re looking to highlight.
Tip 2: Focus
You need to ensure that this piece of furniture is the focal point of the room. Other furniture should be pointed at it, in a way that highlights and doesn’t distract one’s eye from it. Take a step back and look at your space and look out for proportion and that all your attention is automatically drawn to the statement maker.
Tip 3: Tonal Influences
When it comes to picking colours that will help your accent stand out, don’t shy away from going back to your colour wheel. In current times, we look for ways to pick colours that complement each other but also accentuate others. So the easiest way to do that would be to pick up your handy colour wheel and choosing a colour (or colours) with ease.
Tip 4: Balancing Act
Always, always, always, balance out your space. Whether it’s in terms of size, colour, accents or patterns, balance is key. Always ensure you have balanced out space that looks appealing to the eye but speaks about you as well. Pick accents that emphasise your statement maker without throwing the room off balance.
Use these tips to help you accentuate your bold pieces and watch your décor dreams come to life.
