A Focal Point

< I don't know if every room has to have a focal point, but when done correctly, it can make a room fantastic. I use to think a focal point had to be some grand obvious object or part of the room. Fireplace mantels are great starts, but for me, mantels can be one of the hardest things to decorate (that's for another fall post!) Sometimes a great focal point is small with lots of color. My eye went right for the blue vases in the above picture, but still noticing the great chair. The statue in the bathroom could have been over powering, but blends nicely because its the same color as the room. Being able to come up with a good focal point is a great skill to have! I'm still working at it at my house!
