Paintings

Paintings are a great way to bring color into a room. A high-quality painting can also impact the overall mood of the room. The painting you choose is a matter of personal preference, but make sure the style of painting that you choose will complement the overall design of the room. Abstract, modern art is at home in a contemporary room, while a country or rustic home décor style can benefit from a realistic or scenic painting that is reflective of the area that the design style draws its inspiration from.

Mirrors

When choosing the right mirror for a room, it’s important to pay attention to the frame, and choose a style that goes well with the rest of your décor. Also keep in mind frame size. If you have a small space, avoid heavy or thick frames that will quickly overwhelm a small room, making it feel smaller. Spacious rooms can benefit from bolder, more elaborate frames.

Wall Sculptures

Wall sculptures can make excellent statement pieces. When choosing wall features, make sure they are to scale with the size of the room. For a large, spacious room, you can use bigger pieces, but a small room will quickly become overwhelmed by pieces that are too big.
