4.  Artwork is always a good idea

Any piece of artwork can immediately make or beak a room. Art can help tell a story though your interior design, add life to a space, bring bold elements into the room or just be the perfect piece for your composition.

Art can always be a great choice to use as a focal point. However, whatever you choose, you have to position and emphasize it adequately, and whoever steps into your home is going to be amazed by your taste.

When choosing a piece of wall art to be a focal point for your space, the most important consideration is size. An artwork that is too small will get dwarfed by the surrounding furniture and a piece that is too big will look as though it is spilling over. Make sure to take measurements of the wall space available, so you know how much room you have at your disposal.
