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.
Whether it’s your exquisite fine glassware or quirky pieces on dining room or kitchen shelving, or stacks of your books & souvenirs in the study or home office, show it off, arrange it with style. It will look great!
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.
