What does your home say about you and your family? If your house could talk, would it make a statement? Running a household is a full-time job, but decorating your home doesn’t have to be. With the right statement pieces and accessories and a few tips, not only will your home make a statement, your friends and neighbors won’t stop talking about it. Here are five statement pieces for your home that speak for themselves.
Chandeliers and pendant lights can be used to add a touch of whimsy or charm to any space in your home, no matter your decorating style or preference. While chandeliers have long been considered dining room staples, these glamorous statement pieces make for a welcomed addition to a variety of areas, from the entryway to the bedroom.
Bring a little nature inside with the addition of houseplants throughout your home. Not only do indoor plants improve air quality, including reducing carbon dioxide levels and increasing the humidity of your home, houseplants can even help to reduce stress while creating a feeling of well-being, as being around greenery and plants makes us feel a little more at ease with our surroundings. Broad-leafed houseplants look great in bohemian-style abodes, and you can take advantage of vertical space in the kitchen with hanging plants. You may even decide to plant a few herbs, too. Consider playing with heights, dimensions, textures, and colors when decorating with houseplants.
Cozy Electric Fireplace
Make any room in your home instantly cozier by adding an electric fireplace. This statement piece requires little setup and is a great option if you’ve been thinking about adding a fireplace to your home but have had reservations about undergoing costly construction. There are numerous styles of electric fireplaces to choose from that can complement a series of decor schemes, whether you prefer contemporary looks or rustic farmhouse style.
Bold Throw Pillows
Add some interest to your sectional or sofa and spruce up your family room with bold throw pillows. There’s no exact science to selecting throw pillows for your home, however, there are a few guidelines to follow when choosing these statement pieces. Instead of varying colors, varied textures. This provides ample visual interest that’s more mix-and-match than messy. Additionally, you may consider choosing one color with varying patterns. The consistency of the tone will ensure that it all looks pulled-together, despite the multiple patterns. And if your home is decorated in natural accents and colors, choose Earthy tones.
Think of mirrors as decorative windows. These statement pieces can easily be adjusted and moved around in your home; plus, they can even amplify natural light, making small spaces appear a bit bigger. The mirrors you choose can be used as a focal point of a room or you can incorporate mirrors into your home decor to visually expand a certain area, by hanging them opposite a source of natural light or window.
You don’t have to have a design degree or a home stylist to make your home look great. With these statement pieces, from beautiful chandeliers and statement mirrors to cozy electric fireplaces and bold throw pillows for your living space, your home decor will speak for itself.
