As seen on Cousins on Call, John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino used an old mantel they found during the Rao home's construction for a headboard. They salvaged the piece, cleaned it up and painted it blue. Now, the piece is a dramatic statement piece that has become the focal point of the room.
The homeowner of this French Country Home wanted to re-charge her space and bring in vibrant colors, girly patterns and bold statements.

Complimentary pillows were added to accent the furniture and give the space an even more stylish and elegant look.

Designers filled this fun, eclectic home of the NYC fashionista homeowner with bold, luscious fabrics, colors and statement pieces. For example, the homeowner's previously owned sectional was recovered in scrumptious green velvet, and a chunky.

Designers mixed these features with other bold patterns, colors and textures to create a bold, exotic space that makes the owner feel right at home.
Bright orange chairs are bold statement pieces in this French country-inspired backyard. A wood pergola houses an outdoor dining area and effortlessly flows into a sitting area with white patio furniture and stone fire pit.

This modular sofa breathes life and fun into this unique library space. Though it’s made of four pieces that can easily be separated and spread around a room, it’s hard to deny the impact they have when working together.

The family wanted to showcase their personal style and spunk, so designers added statement pieces to the entryway of this home.

This sleek black fireplace was designed as a statement piece for the living room. It was made with a material called archistone that looks like a concrete product but can be manipulated and colored any way the client wants it.
