5 Tips for Creating Drama in Your Space

We always think that in a space there should be at least one item that makes a statement. It takes an alright space and turns it into awesomeness!
Here are 5 things that you can add to your space to create the drama that you want. However keep these items to 2 or so in the room. If you do too many things then it makes it all blend together as opposed to standing on its own.

1. Over-sized Accents – Placing large lamps, mirrors, pillows, and other accents will draw your eyes to this piece since it is out of scale. Pick a special piece, one that makes you smile because you want it to represent your style and personality.

2. Pops of Bright Color – A bright color splashed into the room always makes an impact. The way to achieve the desired look is to centralize the color in one area. It needs to be either a lot of the color in smaller items concentrated together OR one or 2 large color splashes.

3. Groupings – A collection of something, any interest you have really, displayed really becomes a true focal point and visual interest in the room. It can be a grouping of overhead lights, a collection of old cameras, anything you can think up! Be creative and highlight your personality.
