An accent piece – is the item people notice first about your home decor. It is most commonly a piece of art – such as sculpture, vase, or a bowl. But it can also be something a little more luxurious, unique or quirky, like an architectural teapot or a genuine shagreen box for example.
It is true it might take some skills, but honestly – with just a bit of thought, planning and a touch of creative flair; any item in your personal collection, however small or inexpensive, can also go from a yawn to a massive “YES”. But remember! Accent pieces deserve special attention – put them in a place of honour in order to make a major statement. For such display, you’ll want everything to be perfect: the location, the light and the décor. Give the work of art enough room around and the surface space to have its full effect, which applies equally to small and large pieces. The accent piece will be an absolute stunner even in small rooms or a niche.
