So what is it about a room that makes it timeless? You know, the type of room that has elements of the classics of yesterday’s past mixed with a little bit of today’s modern elements. Maybe it’s in the furniture? Or perhaps it’s in the functionality of the room, you never know. It could just be the overall vibe and feeling you get once you enter the room.
Standing the test of time, Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines the phrase as something that continues to be important or respected for an extended period of time. You see, that’s the difference between standing the test of time and trends.
Trends are things that are only popular for a short while. Trends are frequently referenced with clothing and electronic gadgets but it also includes interior design, and several interior design trends were here today and gone tomorrow.
So, pay attention to these statement pieces to include in your home that will stand the tests of time. Incorporating these pieces will give you a home that will never go out of style.
An Oversized Mirror
An oversized mirror is a statement piece that will make a big statement in any room of your house. You can place the mirror in the entryway of your home or even in the bedroom or living room. Some people will place an oversized mirror in a smaller room to let the natural light reflect off of it to make the room look bigger and give off the illusion of added windows to a room.
Accent Wall of Artwork
Accent walls are typically conversation starters among guests visiting people’s homes with accent walls. The great thing about an accent wall is that it can be whatever you want it to be. Whether you want to incorporate the moments from your adventures in Australia or highlight the masterpieces of Van Gogh, your wall is a blank canvas!
Now, as mentioned above, you can always get what you want to showcase on your accent wall, but the key here is, how you showcase what’s on your wall. A design trend that isn’t going anywhere in the world of art is acrylic prints.
The thing about acrylic paints is that they make your artwork and pictures come to life. The color accuracy is out of this world, and there are so many different sizes for you to choose from as well. To make any room stand the test of time, accent your wall in acrylic prints!
Chandeliers for Any Room
Whether you’re going for a look of luxury or not, a chandelier will scream out LUXURY to anyone that sees a chandelier in your home. Now, you can go for the crystal chandeliers showing all the bling-bling, or you can go for the ones that can be found at your local retailer.
Traditionally, chandeliers were found only in dining rooms, but now, people are getting more and more creative on how they want to incorporate them into the design of their homes. For instance, it’s not uncommon to see more and more people hanging them over their beds now but just know that wherever you put a chandelier in your home, it will more than likely be the topic of discussion, and will be the topic of discussion for as long as you have it.
Adding statement pieces to your home should speak to your personality and personal style without overwhelming your home or visitors. You will want to pick out or create big pieces that will make the biggest impact on a room and enhance the flow around it. Just always remember, to make a room look timeless, and that it doesn’t take much. If you add even a few statement pieces to a room, those pieces will stand the tests of time on behalf of the entire room.
