Make a Statement

we've seen statement necklaces and purses in fashion all over the place, but what about making a statement in your home??  Below are some ways to add an unexpected element of surprise to any room.

1.  wall to wall patterned carpet (the key is to tone down everything else and to keep the furniture mostly neutral.

2. Add a pop of color to a room but make sure to keep it to a to a few pieces and some accessories or it can look tacky!
I love this chair because it is not only an unexpected color but the modern style is the perfect juxtaposition to the classic interior.

3. Stray from traditional and use color in a completely unexpected way like on the ceiling or paint cabinets a bright color
