Be Inspired No. 71 - The Statement Piece


  1. 1.
    a definite or clear expression of something in speech or writing.
    "do you agree with this statement?"
    synonyms:declaration, expression of views/facts, affirmationassertion,announcementutterancecommunication
    and  proclamation

Be inspired to consider that the statement piece in the room doesn't have to be a piece of furniture. In fact, I am excited to concentrate on some of the synonyms of "statement"! I love declaration, announcement, and proclamation. That is certainly what oversized paintings offer.

What a license to expand our options when using "the declaration piece" or "the proclamation piece" in a room! The images in this blog post certainly answer to this refreshing outlook.

I truly am giddy with the possibilities. To have ownership of a true statement piece needing no explanation or introduction. A statement piece without a second guess.

This is inspiration that has me putting a big "X" over those interior design references that provide appropriate artwork sizes for rooms. The terminology "sofa size painting" should no longer be in your vocabulary. 

The other design practice this will kick to the curb is the accent wall painted a different color than the rest of the room. 

The added bonus to this inspiration of oversized paintings as the statement piece in a room is that it is virtually unlimited in its application. Unlike furniture statement pieces, that are full of definitive limitations. Be inspired!
