How To: Create a Focal Point in Your Room

A focal point is an object in the room that draws a guest’s eyes away from the mess and clutter, and instead starts conversation and adds interest. At least, in my household, there’s mess and clutter. Oops.

Focal points can be a variety of different objects in your home, and today at The Mix, we will outline a few different ways to incorporate a focal point into your already existing design.

Go Bold with Color

Add a bold color is the easiest way to draw attention to an item. For example, if you are looking to add more seating to your living room, consider choosing a chair that has a bright pattern or color, like the one picture above. In an otherwise neutral room, these chairs would stand out and draw guests in.

Pick a Statement Piece

This piece doesn’t have to be furniture or even functional (as evidenced by the picture above!). The only purpose of this piece is to make a statement about who you are and what your design aesthetic is.

Use the Walls

Of course, painting an accent wall is old news. Add wallpaper, texture, or amazing artwork to draw the eye and make a statement in any room of the house. We are absolutely loving the look and color scheme of this shutter wall!
