Casa Quickie: Play With Scale

While Nick Olsen suggests using large furnishings even if you have a small space, at some point, big becomes prohibitive. Instead, I say play with scale.
Here, on a wall that is essentially just decorative, a small end table and side chair were used, while oversize vases and artwork make a statement. The table is only a stashing ground for odds, ends, and accent pieces, and the chair isn't meant for lounging, so their sizes are functionally irrelevant. Imagine the near-ceiling-height art pieces shrunk down to 11 by 14; that wouldn't make much of an impact, right? So, before you shop, consider what the function of each area of your home is. If you're only furnishing to fill space, maybe that's a place to be bold and play with scale.
