Maximize your space by adding a pair of floating shelves above the sofa. The additional surfaces provide room for displaying artwork and other mood objects, such as candles or plants. Design by Trish Beaudet
Rather than a matching set of mirroring objects, go for asymmetrical arrangements of three, five or seven objects, setting them off-center to add a subtle element of surprise. "Odd numbers are usually the most interesting," says designer Megan. Instead of symmetry, what you're aiming for is balance. "Even if you have two matching items, like a pair of beautiful urns, put them on the diagonal," rather than directly opposite each other, she suggests. Design by Christopher Grubb.
