One, just one element can move a space from ‘eh’ to ‘awesome’. So which one? And how do you decide?
Try a funky paint color, cool fabric, awesome rug, eye-catching lamp, or even one brave furniture purchase. Take a look at the spaces below and see if you can find the Thing that makes them notable.
At first glance, this space could be just about any luxury hotel room. Very nice finishes, but devoid of real personality. And, as fun as that graphic bedding is, it is the headboard that is really eye-catching. The scale, color, and style all demand attention, with a subtle nod to the color spread around the room (chair upholstery and lampshades) for balance.
In this case, the dining space has personality from not only a great color addition, but a great pattern. The high contrast, large scale graphic fabric (repeated from the window treatments to the bench), immediately pulls your eye to the great architecture of the space. Adding the color with an accent wall reinforces its importance in the room.
What do both these spaces have in common? One bold element that makes the space memorable. Looking to make an impression with your home? One brave decision is all you need!
