Create a WOW Factor with Statement Ceilings

Underappreciated and often overlooked is the fifth wall, the ceiling. While many people think a statement can only be made on the walls or with furniture, they often forget that the ceiling is an excellent place to make a unique statement.

There are so many ways to create a focal point with your ceiling that whether you’re all in or not feeling incredibly risky, there is a choice that’s just right for you.

For those who are on the fence with this design trend, start by focusing on what you have such as architectural details that your ceiling may have. Polish any wooden beams or paint coffers to make them stand out and pop. Sometimes simply freshening up your ceiling is a subtle touch that can make a big impact.

If you have ceilings that lack architectural detail, consider adding your own, such as shiplap or wooden beams to pull your room together. Using natural products on your ceiling is great in homes that evoke a coastal or farmhouse style

Another great way to create a statement with your ceiling is to paint it a fun colour, or if in a kid’s room, a pattern that matches their favourite hobby or sport.

How to Bring Timeless Velvet into Your Home

Thanks in part to today’s fabric technology; velvet is no longer reserved solely for luxurious homes, as it has become a more affordable option to all. With more colour choices and a more maintainable fabric, there’s no reason not to incorporate velvet into your home.

Velvet is a luxurious and warm fabric that adds considerable depth to a room thanks to its bold, rich colours. Our favourite way to incorporate velvet into your living room is with a sofa. A velvet sofa in a rich, jewel tone adds such a level of beauty that it truly speaks for itself.

For those not quite ready to jump to a velvet sofa, try starting smaller, with accent or tuft pillows. Velvet curtains can also add a dramatic touch while still keeping a low profile. They add both a hint of glam and timelessness to your space.

Velvet accent chairs, either in your living or dining room are fabulous for packing a punch with a small footprint. Chairs are a great piece of furniture to bring in a bold colour to make a statement. In the case of dining room chairs, a little goes a long way.

And in the bedroom, especially during the colder months, a velvet blanket or comforter is perfect for adding a cozy and warm feeling to your space.
