Add something unexpected

Sometimes the best statement you can make in your space is by the addition of something a bit unconventional.  An unexpected or unique element will provide a conversation piece as well as bring your own story and personality to your home. 
Here are a few simple ideas to get your inspiration flowing: 
  • Hang a rug or grain sack on the wall as a tapestry 
  • Install wallpaper or paint a pattern on the ceiling 
  • Display a favourite childhood collection on a bookshelf 
  • Paint built-ins an unusual colour (paint it entirely or just the backs of shelves!) 
  • Frame a quirky art print that makes you smile 
  • Hang an old ladder on the wall

Incorporate grand elements

You might feel safer selecting small or medium scale accessories and lighting, but to make a significant statement in a room, you have to think bigger! Consider a large chandelier in your dining room, bigger pillows on the sofa (try 20" pillow covers with 22" pillow inserts or larger!), a substantially sized rug to ground the living room, larger-scaled patterns or a really chunky  framed mirror above a bathroom vanity.

Repeat, repeat, repeat

Repetition makes a more noticeable statement and helps a space feel cohesive and intentionally designed for impact. Select matching  lamps on a console table, two wall sconces flanking a sofa, three matching linen bulletin boards in an office or tall curtain panels hung at the same height throughout an open floor plan. Repeat the same pattern or colour multiple times in a room to increase the visual flow and pull together your design statement.

Dare to be dramatic

Don't hold back, go with your daring side and add drama to your space for an unforgettable statement in any room. 
Here are some ideas for a more dramatic look: 
  • Paint walls a dark moody colour. 
  • Hang a wall of mirrors in a small hallway. 
  • Hang curtains in a large scale or colourful pattern 
  • Use a luxurious mix of fabrics like velvet and silk for pillows or curtains 
  • Change out your white lampshades for black or grey 
  • Install a striking crystal chandelier in your entry.

Tell Your Tales

Making a statement for your home doesn't always have to mean including a flashy or daring choice. Personal items that tell your story can be just the statement you're looking for!
Use  monogrammed pillows in the bedroom, hang up pieces of your own artwork or show off favourite family craft projects. Decorate with family heirlooms or market furniture you've collected in your own neighbourhood (bin diving adventures make the best stories!). Display accessories that tell the grand adventures of your childhood and frame awards and ribbons that show off your child's (or your own!) shining moments. Not only will you feel more at home but your guests will get the sense that your home is loved and decorated uniquely by you and that's the very best statement to make!
