1. Utilise dark colours to add depth to a room.
Take a look at the two photos beneath and see the difference the dark indent makes. It can be tempting to reserve dark colours for raised walls but often it is much more impactful when these are left light and the surrounding walls are painted a darker colour. This adds depth to the room and also makes the feature wall pop at the same time.
2. Choose heights carefully
When arranging plants or furniture be deliberate about your placing and consider where in the room that you want the focus to be drawn. Place art at eye height and any other additions well below this level so as not to draw attention away from the intended main feature.
3. Choose something eye-catching to display.
You've spent all this time creating your backdrop in order to frame something important so why would you put something up just for the sake of it? Exactly. This is a space within your home where you should feel free to really expresses your character and taste so consider how you want this feature to make you feel. Bright paintings and bold prints will always draw the eye, or hang contemporary plates for an original look that is both new and retro.
