A major home decor trend is to use larger and more powerful pieces. These single statements have eye-catching design elements that showcase best when on their own. Here are a few of my favorite ways to make a statement in your home!

These big framed show-stoppers would look awesome over a couch, on a blank wall or even in a small powder room. Their size alone is so unexpected making it a great conversation piece!

Mirrors are a classic and useful way to make a major statement in your home. I personally love a bright home so when I’m able to reflect light and add style, I’m a happy camper!

Rugs are the perfect way to ground a room. They add a beautiful pop of color while also providing warmth and function. Y’all I have a major obsession with rugs! It’s amazing how quickly a room transforms once the right one is down.

I love how lighting can instantly transform a room. I always felt like our flips were so far from finished until the lights went up. Function and ambiance…yes please!
