Every room must have a FOCAL POINT. This is what defines the room and often reveals its purpose. Determining the focal point is fairly simple in most cases. This is the area you most enjoy viewing or that most often grabs your attention. Depending on your room, this area could be the fireplace, a large piece of artwork, an entertainment unit, or beautiful windows. Arrange your largest piece of seating furniture so that it faces your chosen focal point (this eliminates visual confusion); then layer in your other pieces of furniture and accent pieces. Once you have made these simple changes, sit back and enjoy when your guests notice the difference and you feel the difference in your room.
