Making a Dramatic Statement
In the world of interior decorating, it is commonly held that the best way to make a bold statement is with an understated overall look punctuated by bold or dramatic pieces. This means that if you want a drastic paint color, that should be the focal point of the room. Make sure the accessories complement but don’t overshadow that paint job.
Or, if you’re going to go with a more neutrally based color palette, make sure that you have some pieces that can serve as conversation starters. This can be a particularly ornate hand made grandfather clocks, or it can be a dark mahogany polished buffet. Whatever the dramatic piece, don’t go overboard with the look. Choose that one bold item and build the look of the room around it.
