When people think of fashion and trends, their minds are automatically drawn to runways and the world of designer clothes. Furniture can (and should) be fashionable too. Changing out your home décor with the seasons should be a given – after all, a change is as good as a holiday.

Update your home décor at least twice a year, that way your home can be a direct reflection of your personality and sophisticated style choices. Below are five great ways to make a statement with your interior design that is simple yet so effective.

  • Create An Accent Wall

One of the most effective ways to make a statement in any room is by adding an accent wall. Many people think these walls only work in living or sleeping spaces, but they couldn’t be more wrong.

Accent walls work in practically any space, from kitchens to nurseries and every room in between. All it takes is experimenting with bold colors to create depth and drama. Wallpaper and exciting colors take so well, and they can be changed out seasonally.

  • The Importance Of Scale

When creating a stylish and sophisticated space, many newbie designers think that a statement piece should be the shining star of the room. That is a colossal design error because a statement piece works best when it has support from other carefully curated design elements.

If a statement item is left floating on its own in a room, it will create an imbalance and look off. Keep your design choices chic and your statement pieces surrounded by thoughtfully designed elements that will help them looks their best in the bedroom or any other room.

  • Feature Furniture

One of the most impressive elements you can add to a space is an item of feature furniture. Feature furniture is anything that stands out or draws the eye as soon as someone walks into the room.

The options are practically limitless here, you could hit up an auction and find something well-loved and timelessly stylish, or choose something bolder and more outlandish. The goal here is to focus your guest’s attention on something beautiful like antique apothecary cabinets.

  • Play With Lighting

One of the single-most significant design elements in any room is always lighting. Lighting can instantly set or change the mood of the room. Don’t leave lighting as an afterthought – it has a significant impact on the overall design of the space.

Choose a stunning chandelier or add cleverly placed pendants to capture the essence of your style choices. Lighting should be both practical and eye-catching to have a lasting effect.

  • Experiment With Textures and Patterns

Instead of sticking to neutral colors and boring patterns, get creative with your design choices. Experiment with textures and patterns to create a home that your guests will remember for years.

Most design experts recommended using bolder textures and colors in a space that would otherwise seem plain and uninteresting. If you’re nervous, start small with layers and a few daring choices – everything else will pull together beautifully after that.
