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.
Fireplaces are a fabulous focus for a room & an attractive architectural feature – They add a cozy homey touch with warmth & personality to your room & your home. So if you have a fabulous grand fireplace, make it the focus & anchor of your room around which you arrange other things.
Are there any home decorating styles that you like, or that you tend to gravitate towards that can give you a general direction? Perhaps its Country or Rustic, Mediterranean or Tuscan, Asian, Classical, Contemporary, or a combination of some? Which do you or would you feel most comfortable in every day?
