I believe incorporating statement pieces in our homes is practically essential. They offer us a chance to express ourselves and our unique tastes. Even if you’re someone who’s home style is to commit to one particular trend or vibe, you can always add in a statement piece that shows off personality. My personal home style is an eclectic mix of 2-3 vibes, so to be honest, I’d make every piece in my home a statement piece…that’s just my particular style. In fact, as I write this I’m looking around my place and noticing every piece of furniture and most decor items pack quite the punch. Pretty cool!
But maybe that’s not your style. Maybe you look a clean palette, a minimalistic style approach or when you go all-in when it comes to a trend-you commit. That’s awesome too! The wonderful thing about statement pieces in your home is there are no rules. I’m no interior design expert, but I also don’t think you need to be to decorate a home you love. If you love a certain piece of furniture or decor, don’t worry about it clashing. Most likely it will be the piece visitors talk about the most 🙂
I want to make a brief note about statement pieces and my general thought process on purchasing them. I’m someone who believes you don’t need to spend a lot to have a home that is decorated and furnished beautifully. If you ask my friends and visitors who have come over my home, they’ll tell you about the amazing deals I patiently wait for or about my persistence in searching for a particular item that I know I’ll eventually get my hands and for a price I’m willing to pay. However, I loosen the reigns when it comes to statement pieces. The truth is a lot of the pieces of furniture, wall decor or art out there that pack a statement come with a heftier price-tag based on the uniqueness and quality of the piece. These are the purchases I splurge more on. Therefore, below you’ll find plenty of average priced statement pieces along with several that if it were any other piece that wasn’t half as beautiful, I wouldn’t pay for. But as I mention, these pieces are BEAUTIFUL. So, I treat myself! Just wanted to be transparent on that 🙂
