How to build a room around a statement piece
ADD SOME WOW FACTOR
If an interior feels ordinary and lacking, statement pieces are a beautiful and clever way to create a focal point, give the space some depth, and add some WOW factor. Whether it’s an intricate sculpture, a bold and bright artwork, a patterned rug, oversized light fitting, we have gathered some great ideas and inspirational imagery to build your interior around a statement piece. In our eyes, if you love something, you can make it work.
BALANCE YOUR SPACE SO IT’S NOT OVERWHELMING
First things first, a statement piece should be given the opportunity to stand alone and stand out. If placed with other statement items, they will compete for attention and make the overall space feel too overwhelming. You want to balance your items out so they work cohesively with one another. Keeping the surrounding palette neutral, allows the statement piece to really be showcased.
PLAY WITH THE COLOURS SURROUNDING YOUR STATEMENT PIECE
Going back to basics and reviewing your colour wheel is a great way to play with the colours surrounding your statement piece. For example, if you have an orange giraffe sculpture in your living space, you may want to introduce its complimentary colour into the scheme and showcase blue accents throughout the space.
KEEP THE FOCAL POINT OBVIOUS
Don’t be afraid to play with your space. After all, it comes down to your personal taste and style and what you’ll be living in every day. Keep the focal point obvious and get creative by playing with surrounding items such as greenery and texture to balance the space out.
