Take a Room from Good to Great

1. The right rug

There’s nothing like a rug to really tie a room together. The right rug can help to establish a room’s color scheme, add texture, and unify disparate elements. Think of the rug as being the thing that balances out the other elements in the room.

2. Plants

The human eye is naturally drawn to shapes that are found in nature, and every room could benefit from a little something organic. A great way to achieve this is with plants.

3. The right art

No room is ever complete without art. The mistake that most people make when choosing art is that they don’t get enough of it, and the things they pick aren’t big enough.

4. Lighting

Lamps (and pendants and chandeliers and whatnot) are important not just because they make a room look cool, but because the right lighting can make you see a room in a completely different way.

5. Textiles

Textiles are what make a room seem warm and comfy and inviting. Throw pillows, blankets, curtains — these are the things that make the difference between a really pretty showroom floor and a home.
