Introducing your space to new pieces is very similar to introducing a significant other to your childhood friends for the first time.
Youâ€™re bringing a foreign item into the land of the familiar, not knowing whether itâ€™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 itâ€™s a very big IF.
Weâ€™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 itâ€™s been there all along.
1. Make The Statement Piece The Focal Point Of The Room
While you donâ€™t necessarily need to reorganize your whole room, itâ€™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 itâ€™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. Donâ€™t Forget About Scale
Make sure that all your pieces in your space even out! Itâ€™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, donâ€™t forget to add your own personal flair in there! Play around with what feels right to you. After all, itâ€™s your space to come home every day to, so might as well guarantee that it fits your vibe.
