Although I am ALL ABOUT clean, minimalist decor, I am a huge believer in the statement piece.
Automatically, our minds often think of statement pieces as ones that are bright and bold in color. That can be true, but a statement piece can also be defined by its distinct design, mix of materials, and its multifunctional use.
I prefer to include just one to two statement pieces in each room in order to highlight them best. For the rest of the decor, I generally keep design styles similar and colors in the same palette.
The statement piece in my bedroom.

I have rounded up some of my favorite statement pieces for the living areas of your home.
Since making a statement does NOT have to mean spending a lot, I have included comparable pieces on the right side.
Now go, be bold!
