Just because a new home comes with fresh white walls doesn't mean they have to stay that way.  A statement wall can pull a design together, add personality and make furniture and accessories pop. Creating an eye-catching feature can be simple, starting with a wall to highlight.

Whether you choose to make a statement with a bold, bright wall color or an exotic, textured wallpaper, the key is to balance it with other design elements in the room.

Choose a Focal Point -- Decide what aspect of the room you would like to draw attention to. Fireplaces, large furniture pieces and art work, are popular focal points.  If your room doesn't lend itself to having a statement wall, highlight existing features like a small office nook or an inset wall.

Pick a Bold Color or Pattern -- Choose a bright color, interesting texture or striking pattern for your statement wall. Pick up a color from the furniture or textiles already in the room or go with a contrasting color to stand out more.

Place Furniture for Maximum Impact -- Arrange pieces of furniture to draw attention to your statement wall.  For example, two light colored occasional chairs on opposite sides of a darkly painted wall attract the eye and create a focal point, particularly when they are coupled with pops of color in pillows, lams and art.

Add Accents -- Finish off a room's design by carefully placing accessories that highlight your statement wall. This is the perfect opportunity to integrate your personality into your home.  Show off your favorite artwork, family heirlooms or travel keepsakes.

ENJOY THE RIDE!
