The first thing you need to decide is what statement you want to make. Do you want a statement which displays your creative flair? If so consider commissioning a large, abstract piece of art. Alternately if you want to make a homely, family one introduce a large, brightly coloured suite into your living room. No matter what statement you choose to make be sure that it’s personal to you and your household; there would be nothing worse than investing in a statement piece of furniture or art and going off it a month later! Think it through carefully before you take the plunge.
Once you’ve decided what you want your statement to say about you, your family and your lifestyle you next need to decide what the statement feature will be. If your home decor tastes are clean and simple why not opt for a feature wall? Picture your white, muted furniture, walls and floors dominated by a bold red wall. Or, if that’s a little too daring for you, why not create a statement headboard for your bedroom? There’s no bigger bedroom decor statement than a bespoke, handcrafted, personally designed velvet headboard.
Once you’ve decided on the statement you want to make and the feature which will make it for you you then need to consider the overall design and execution of the piece. If you’ve decided on a statement sofa for your lounge you now need to consider its pattern, colour, size and design. If you’re opting for a feature wall you need to think about the colour or pattern you want to cover it with before sourcing the perfect paint or wallpaper.
Once you’ve decided which statement to make, how to make it and what you want it to look like the only thing left to do is do it! If you plan to paint your own feature wall or create your own piece of statement art make sure you’ve got the correct supplies, tools and equipment for the job. If you’re hoping to commission furniture, artwork or architectural features make sure you’ve contacted the professionals to make your dream statement a reality. Once these things have been decided and completed all that is left to do is sit back and enjoy your beautiful interior design statement.
