Display your collectibles in clusters or groupings to create a theme. Think big & display them en masse & make a grand statement. A fireplace & mantel is a perfect place to display your family photos, collectibles, ornaments, a tall vase with willow or dramatic fresh flowers, or holiday decorations.

Accentuate your room’s major feature item. A sofa is a major purchase item, & one that you will hopefully, have for some length of time. So, consider your choice carefully. The color you choose should not be ‘too wild’ or extreme, unless you have chosen to go really bold & unusual as part of your decorating theme for your room. Its better if you consider a sofa as part of the canvas of your room, with some leeway of course, that you can accentuate further with colorful cushions, throw rugs & other home accent accessories.
For dramatic impact, you can experiment with one wall as a ‘feature wall’ & make a theatrical, spectacular statement! This way you can also see whether you like & feel comfortable with incorporating a bit of dramatic ‘look at me’ impact into a room, & how you feel about the intensity of the color. Its better to start with a lighter version of the color – you can always darken the intensity. That’s easier than the other way around.
