Introducing your space to new pieces is very similar to introducing a significant other to your childhood friends for the first time.
You’re bringing a foreign item into the land of the familiar, not knowing whether it’ll fit in or not. You want it to fit in perfectly, of course, because you adore it more than anything, but the fact remains that it’s a very big IF.
We’ve got the insider information to help make the transition of being unsure about a statement piece to ensuring that it seamlessly (no pun intended) fits right into your space and shines (just like a Diamond, shoutout to Rihanna), like it’s been there all along.
1. Make The Statement Piece The Focal Point Of The Room
While you don’t necessarily need to reorganize your whole room, it’s a good idea to ensure that the statement piece stays a statement piece. In other words, use the other pieces in your space to complement the one eye-catching piece. If too many textures and colours get mixed up, the room might get overwhelming.
2. The Rule Of Three
A solid rule of thumb is when adding a pop of colour to a room, try to use it in three different accent areas. That way, it makes the room feel brighter, slightly larger, and more inviting.
3. Take A Step Back
Sometimes, you get so involved in the process of creating a space that it’s hard to see what it actually looks like. Make sure you take a step back every once in a while and look at the bigger picture.
4. Don’t Forget About Scale
Make sure that all your pieces in your space even out! It’s not the first thing that comes to mind, but proportion and sizes can make a lasting difference in the layout and appearance of a room.
5. Make It Your Own
Lastly, don’t forget to add your own personal flair in there! Play around with what feels right to you. After all, it’s your space to come home every day to, so might as well guarantee that it fits your vibe.
