Transforming your home with a few statement pieces

Transforming your home with a few statement pieces

Furnishing and decorating your home, while exciting, can also be overwhelming, time consuming and a very costly affair.

We generally want to get it right the first time round. However, there comes a time when we feel a burning desire for fresh makeover. It’s been a couple of years and we’re searching for a change. We are momentarily motivated by the interior inspo images that flood our Instagram and we’re excited about the prospect of new furnishings in our home, but shudder at the thought of our bank account depleting faster than desired. So, we put it off completely. Sound
familiar?
Redecorating does not need to be a time consuming task or a costly affair. It certainly does not require the replacement of all your furnishings, but rather the integration of a few statement pieces to inject new energy and life into your interiors.


Persian Rugs


The beauty of Persian Rugs lies in the delicate craftsmanship of each piece. Each rug incorporates a unique pattern of symbols and motifs, most of which reflect a strong connection to nature. Plants, flowers and birds are common examples of the motifs and symbols featured on Persian Rugs and the combination of these elements tell a story. Persian Rugs are hand knotted works of art that make a stylish statement when teamed with the right decor. When choosing your statement rug, be sure to consider the colour scheme of your current interior as you want to achieve contrast and character, but want to avoid a terrible clash.


Chinese Porcelain


For centuries, Porcelain has been regarded as a symbol of elegance and status. Today, Chinese Porcelain, often referred to as ‘China’ are collected and displayed by house proud individuals across the globe. For visual impact, display your collection of Porcelain Ginger Jars and Vases in odd numbered clusters. You can also position a traditional Blue and White Porcelain vase between an even number of contemporary vases to break the monotony in your interior. Incorporating a mixture of contemporary pieces with a few Chinese antiques creates contrast and adds character to your home.


Cushions & Throws


If you’re searching for a cost effective way to give your home an instant makeover, consider a seasonal change in your cushions and throws. Bold patterns and vibrant colours can inject instant energy and life into your home. Opt for an odd number of cushions, three or five is an adequate amount. Square cushions should be between 18 and 24 inches in length, large enough to make a visual statement. Keep in mind that a few big pillows make more of a statement than multiple small ones.


Wall Panels


A prominent piece of decor on the wall can instantly rejuvenate your interiors. How about a Chinese painting inspired by the Qing Dynasty or a set of an antique wall panels reflecting an ancient period? Pieces like these not only create visual appeal, but draw intrigue and fascination, given the rich history behind these antique gems.
No matter what your budget is, you can easily transform your interiors with a few signature pieces. Stop prolonging your makeover and start drawing inspiration from the various interior design blogs you’ve been quietly stalking!
