Looking for fresh decor to take your space to the next level? Try incorporating a bold statement piece into the room you’re revamping. Unique items can really enhance your design. Focal points can add an unexpected cohesiveness to a space, and they make for great conversation starters!
You don’t have to travel the world in order to find statement pieces for your home. Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault, the Queen of DIY and one of our favourite home improvement experts, explains that most retailers now offer more unique pieces to suit the growing eclectic appreciation trend.
Begin your search for an original accent piece by scouting out local home decor and furniture outlets. See if anything catches your eye and be open to bright colours you might otherwise avoid – you really want this item to POP!
If you can’t find anything you really love, (and you want to make sure you really love this piece; never settle when it comes to choosing decor), try hitting up thrift stores, flea markets, and even garage or yard sales. You’re more likely to discover an original item in these venues, although what you find may not always be in the best condition. Don’t let a little wear and tear scare you off - some paint and a bit of elbow grease can usually solve most problems!
For more design, decor, and DIY advice make sure to catch Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault at the Vancouver Home + Design Show, October 22-25, 2015 at its new location, the Vancouver Convention Centre - West. Leigh-Ann will be gracing the Main Stage on Saturday, October 24th at 6pm and Sunday, October 25th at 12pm.
