When it comes to our homes, many of us love the idea of being able to add their personalities into the rooms. We love the idea of having the chance to put our stamp on the place, whether that is a natural decor or adding lots of colour. One thing many of us like the idea of is having features and making bold statements, but not all of us have a clue on what to do or where to start. I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can make some bold statements in your home.
Add colour with soft furnishings and accessories
Colour is one of the easiest ways that you can make a bold statement in your home. Everyone is different when it comes to how they present their home and what colours they like so it is the perfect way to make a statement. The easiest way is to add it through soft furnishing, ornaments and accessories. This way, if you want to change things, you can easily replace those items rather than having to paint walls. However, colour can also be added to the walls, but if you want the accessories to be the bold aspect, stick with pastel shades or a neutral colour scheme so that your choices of colour will work better and stand out.
Create a feature wall
On the subject of walls, you could consider creating a feature wall in a room. This is designed to be the statement aspect of your room as it should draw the attention of the eye the moment you walk into it. However, the most obvious choice would be to add a colour, or even wallpaper the wall, but actually a lovely way to do is to use pictures or paintings. Creating a photo wall with picture frames is a great way to add a more personal feel to the room. You could use framed painting and other pictures or mix the two if you love to be a little more creative.
Consider bold pieces of furniture
Furniture is a great way to add a different dimension to your rooms, and adding bolder pieces could really be the eye catching factor of the space. Living rooms could have oversized or brightly coloured sofas, bedrooms can have statement beds or brightly coloured bed linen. Kitchens and bathrooms could be revamped. There are many ways you can do it, but adding bold pieces could be the statement you are wanting to make.
Seek out inspiration and do things differently
Finally, you could seek out inspiration for making a statement in your home by browsing online. Websites like Pinterest or Instagram are full of inspiration. Pinterest has many articles and tutorials on creating things, whereas Instagram is a visual paradise. With so many people sharing their homes and ideas online, it is now easier than ever to feel inspired and replicate some of the things you have loved in your own home.
I hope that these tips help you to make bold statements in your home!
