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.
Tim Allen in the brilliant home improvement series, short clip from episode 13 Up Your Alley.
Arranging your furniture becomes much easier once a focal point in your room is established. Your main furniture pieces are best directed towards your room’s focal point, keeping the major traffic areas open & easily flowing. You should aim to have a balance of furniture items around your room.
Cushions, pillows, throw rugs, floor rugs & decorative accessories – are a great way to add color, style, personality & warmth to your room, your home. The great thing is that you can experiment – buy one item & bring it home & stand back & see if you like it, or live with it for a while. You want it to be pleasing, or make a WOW statement!
