The Wow Factor!

We are nearing the end of our A-Z of Interior Design, which I hope you are all enjoying!

One of my three rules as an interior designer is to always create a wow factor in each room.   This can be a splendid piece of art, a spectacular sculpture, a quirky or eye-catching item of furniture, a pop of colour, textural effects, a wall design which shouts for attention, e.g.  hand painted art or a beautiful wallpaper, a quirky use of scale or basically anything which will demand attention and be attractive to the senses.  

This beautiful flooring creates a wow factor in this simply styled room...

Wow can mean unusual or eye-catching accessories/lighting within a room

or just a captivating view…



A wow factor is not the same as a focal point, though your wow factor can, and probably will be, a focal point in the space.  The wow factor is not necessarily the first thing you notice when you enter.
