Make a Statement: Objects That Transform a Room

Statement objects in your home can make a big impact, whether it’s a large lamp, sculpture, bright colors or a punchy rug. Choose objects and color schemes that make you feel something and don’t worry too much about making everything work around it. Here are a few ideas to get you started. 

Light, Bright and Ready to Party

Good lighting makes everything look better. A dramatic floor lamp or chandelier is a great way to express yourself and let these pieces make a singular sensation. 

Get Wild

If your neutral space feels a little boring, a zebra striped or jungle print rug will make things feel wilder. It doesn’t have to be a print, a brightly colored rug in a single shade can pump up the volume as well. And remember you can switch it out whenever you tire of it. 

Make a Color Splash

Bold color combos can create a jolt of life. Find a room where you pick a pair like magenta pink and yellow or bright green and purple combinations. Or choose a singular sensation like a large red coffee table. Color creates conversation.  

Make Your Walls Speak

Bring your walls to life with tapestries, rugs, murals and wallpaper. There are so many options to bring your walls to life—so many it’s hard to choose. Like watercolor? Decorate an accent wall with a vinyl watercolor mural.  All about texture? Give the fiber arts a whirl. Macramé, rugs and weaved fabrics are everywhere.
