Make a Statement in Your Home

Be brave when it comes to your home.

Add a special piece to each room for a little magic to happen.  

A statement piece.

It will act as a focal point in the room. Choose something that exudes your personality and makes you smile each time you walk into the room. A piece you absolutely love.


A fantastic piece of vintage furniture 


perhaps in an unexpected colour like black


or a beautiful mirror


or two




Some oversized art work.
I know art can be expensive, but perhaps your statement piece is something you save years for. Something you have lusted for, and will treasure always - like my Laura Matthews painting.


or cheaper art
(even if you have to draw it yourself on a chalk board)


It doesn't even need to be something that costs a lot of money.

Maybe a pop of colour from bright cushions



I like each room in my house to have something really meaningful and special in it. 

A statement that shows people a little insight into the people who make the house their home.  A conversation starter. 

Even my teeny, tiny bathroom has a special statement piece:



Go on
Make a statement.

Be bold, Be brave, Be beautiful.



If you live in or near Sydney and need help sourcing a special statement piece for your home then please feel free to contact me.

  2. I always love your posts. Love the mirrors and I agree, every room should spotlight something that makes you smile. A friendly retailer once told me, "Surround yourself with things that make you smile." I've tried to do that with milk glass, ironstone, a canvas art that I made from my daddy's old sermons, a wall of photos of my children, a display of old bottles. These make me happy.
