Be careful using colors that are too dark, or too strong – you should tread carefully with dark browns, dark reds & dark greens – they can overpower a room & make it seem daunting, uncomfortable, unrelaxing & even claustrophobic.
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.

Do you need some ideas, tips & inspiration to help get you started & making strides toward achieving your dream home?. Do you need a bit of ‘jump-start’ guidance to help draw out from you what’s uniquely YOU & have it creatively express & translate into your home decorating – to put your own individual stamp on your home environment?
Here’s a vital tip - I highly recommend that you avoid making your TV wide screen & entertainment centre the focal point or it will make your room look like a temple of worship to those items. Unless, of course, it’s a specific purpose built home theatre room.
