6 Bold Pops of Design to Instantly Update Your Home

You’re all moved in—with fresh paint on the walls and a fresh start. Or, maybe you’ve lived in your home for 15 years but there’s that one spot in the living room that still needs something on the north-facing wall. A room isn’t complete until it has those final touches: the conversation piece, the pop of color, the boldness that reflects your personality.


After all, what starts a conversation better than a guest coming over and saying “Oh, I love this!” It’s the adventurous design choices—the daring curation—that turn a house into your unique domicile.


Here are a few of our favorite pieces to make a space in your home go “POP!” because a finely decorated space requires emphasis, color, and an occasional pleasant surprise.





Jonathan Adler’s Helios Head Sculpture


With a touch of Easter Island allure, this Helios Head Sculpture was created by Jonathan Alder by melting bronze, giving this sculpture a look of pure gold. This Helios sculpture is sure to add a touch of glamour with its exotic vibes, harkening to the intricate art of African masks. Who says you can’t bring a touch of worldliness to your comfy bedroom?






ADzif’s Dice Wallpaper


In a world of white-painted walls, wallpaper is a bold, if not gutsy, choice. But is anything more delightful than walking into a room that hits you with unexpected patterns and colors? This dice-themed wallpaper is a pleasing choice that will bring a sense of cheeriness to bathrooms and kitchens.








Jonathan Adler’s Globo Console


Two words for this one: serious fun. The front-facing drawers on this white lacquer cabinet feature solid blue acrylic cabochons, delivering a punch of glamour to any space. Pair this with an eye-catching art piece, and you’re sure to add a serious dose of fun and guarantee a whole lot of compliments.






NONO’s Santos Chair


This stunning piece is where high design meets something as ubiquitous as a chair. It will have you thinking about bright red board game pieces and gumdrops while it cradles your body in the shape of a champagne flute. The pop of design is there to remind you to not take life too seriously. What we love about it: Whether it’s on the patio or in the living room, this chair is sure to catch the eye. And, for all practicalities, it’s easy to clean, too!





Souda’s Echo 3 Sconce


Souda designs are a little weird, a little quirky, and a lot of fun. Back in the Colonial era, homeowners would place candles in front of mirrors to reflect more light into the room, and this sconce is a fun twist on that idea. These retro bulbs flow into their reflection in the mirror, making it look like they’re floating in space.







B + R Studio’s Yellow Sunday Print


Geographic art prints are in right now and for good reason. They capture the eye and stoke the imagination, offering a sense of emphasis and color. We especially love “Yellow Sunday” by B + R Studio in New York because of its incredible colors and soft, gumdrop shape.





In every room, there needs to be a focal point. The focal point could be a chair, an art piece, or even patterned wallpaper. That way, you’re sure to end up with a home that’s full of fabulous textures, intriguing design choices, and conversation pieces to keep you feeling inspired and bright.
