The feature wall, also known as the ‘statement wall’ is the pièce de résistance in modern homes, and a welcome saviour for spaces missing that certain je ne se quois.
A concept that goes hand-in-hand with many pros – helping to divide a space, adding flair, giving the illusion of depth when there isn’t much – it’s hard to imagine that the feature wall could ever disappoint. Although, it can potentially have its downsides. Namely, looking out of place in an otherwise cohesive space if the wrong colour or pattern is chosen, adding chaos to an already overcrowded space, and dating a space when the chosen colour or concept loses its street cred.

Is the traditional décor in your home all just a little too ordinary? While not every item in your home should make a statement, there’s certainly room to rock a few unique pieces to stop your visitors in their tracks.
Whether it’s a large-scale centrepiece like a cabinet or rug, or simply some dip your toes in the water statement accessories, conversation starters are all about creating unique focal points and bringing visual interest to your interior.
Travelling mementoes are a great option, as are unique one-off furniture items, but equally anything which catches the eye can make interior magic.
While too many statement pieces can end up creating competition, a standout centrepiece is an attention seeker in all the right ways.
