Here, two natural wood planks echo the shape and orientation of the bed but add a little curve to the formality of the frame. Another benefit: Those planks fill the tall angled wall from bed to ceiling and lead your eye toward the expansive space above. Traditional artwork would have left an awkward large white area. If you have a print you really love, combine it with other accents for interest. This combination of artwork, a horizontal architectural piece, beautifully textured wallpaper and a great light fixture makes for an eye‐catching collection. If you have a long and low headboard, think about bringing a vertical element into the space for height. These hanging glass bubbles are the perfect contrast to the long, flat line of the headboard. Here's another option for spicing up your headboard. Hang art over a portion of the headboard and add a little DIY art to the wall behind. These two additions keep things visually interesting and unpredictable. Sometimes all a headboard needs is a little asymmetry. Here a small print balances the bed as part of a simple asymmetrical arrangment. The black and white print and frame complement the colors and shape of the bed.

Try picking items made from the same material. Here glass objects of various sizes look fresh and pretty on this mantel, but you could choose to group wooden, ceramic, silver or brightly painted items.

Asian‐style homes tend to display only the most thoughtfully selected items, so simple modern shelves that frame this fireplace top and bottom suit the space perfectly. Consider downlights as a way to give those display items pride of place.

Round tables look good in compact rooms and living areas that have square dining zones. They also offer flexible seating. If you buy a six‐seater, eight can usually be accommodated at a pinch – the larger the diameter, the more people can be seated. On the other hand, rectangular tables have limited seating spots due to the position of the table legs and because only one person can be seated at each end. However, if you choose a rectangular table with leaves, the table can be extended to accommodate extra guests whenever an event is planned, such as for a family Christmas or birthday party.

A rod (versus chain) installation creates a crisp and somewhat masculine aesthetic that works very well with these drum shades. This eclectic bedroom stretches the limits of minimalism by blending the pendants into the wall. The result is pure function, as the aesthetic is more about what is not there. Now this is what I meant by "secret weapon." This otherwise simple bedroom is kicked into high gear with these fabulous pendants. When design goes outside the box, magic happens. A guest bedroom is a great place in which to sport a bedside pendant that is unique and memorable. These great pendants look like fancy dinner napkins. The result is a whimsical, one‐of‐a‐kind environment for a lucky houseguest.
