So we’re Still learning every day from the smallest piece up to our greatest pieces…
Do you ever walk in to someone’s home and go wow what I wouldn’t give from a room like that ? Well I do all the time and I often wonder what it is that gives a room that wow factor without breaking the bank, and I have firmly come to the conclusion that a room doesn’t have to be full of wonderful things to make it a success, know all it needs is one beautiful, unusual or even statement piece to give it the wow factor. 😀
Let’s say you have a lot of dark wood well then make your wow piece a bright shabby chic piece or reverse the state of play and add a dark piece to a room full of brighter pieces. A large piece of glass or ceramic art on a side table or even a large ornate mirror.
My advise for a large room would be to work with 2 pieces from the above on opposite sides of the room.
I love a lamp rather then the glare of over head lighting but I prefer where possible lamps that are not overly ornate as they are less likely to date.
In a living room I like to mix leather with fabrics with either one leather and two fabric sofa’s or the opposite just as long as the colours blend. A study with a day-bed is always good, again go for one piece that will add richness. Here I would suggest your main piece will be either the day-bed or your study/work desk. Let’s say you have a Victorian Davenport with a single davan with a bright patchwork or kantha and some rich coloured cussions and throws, and if you don’t have a book case just use bookends or add some shelves
