Creating interest in a space can be done in many ways. In the past, having a piece of furniture that didn’t match with the other pieces was placed off to the side. Now, an unusual furniture item becomes the star to showcase an area of your home.
The days of all your furniture matching are gone and are now considered rather safe. To accomplish a change in your decor without starting over, consider adding accent furniture with intriguing designs.
Here are a few ideas on how this update can be achieved.
If you have matching wooden tables in your living room, remove one and replace with a glass and iron table. Add an ottoman in a dramatic fabric. Replace a table lamp from a pair of matching ones with a floor lamp. Recover an upholstered chair with a fabric that is a different pattern than the rest of the upholstered furniture.
Add a painted chest to your matching bedroom furniture and change your headboard to an iron frame or a sumptuously padded one. Add a bench to the end of bed. Replace the dresser mirror with a different, decorative style.
Replace two end chairs in your dining room with fully upholstered ones that are a different colour and style than the side chairs.
With the many choices today of unique accent pieces, you can add elements of interest throughout your home and create a space that is uniquely yours.
Until next time!
