There's that special something in every room that ties the design elements together, completes the look, and adds that "wow" factor. How do you learn to add in that special final touch? By learning from the master interior designers here at homify, of course. We've collected some of the best examples of that finishing item to help you spot your own perfect focal piece. Let's get started.
1. Burgundy vase
This room makes great use of a contrast between rich and thin colour. To balance that deep navy couch, a dark object had to be place on the right-- and the vase is a perfect choice.
2. Thin lines
The interior designers here wanted to make a visual connection between the thin black lines on the carpet, and the light fixture. The unique coffee tables were the perfect way to achieve that.
3. Dramatic art
Sometimes the perfect finishing touch is all about breaking the rules of the space. This colourful art peice stands out, but still plays with the geometric theme of the room.
Each sea-shaped piece of driftwood art is unique, and lends a texture and natural connection to otherwise very modern spaces.
This ottoman is a layered focal point. It's not just practical, it's puffy top and dark tone connect to tall of the furniture in the room, while the bowl of apples on top highlights the red accent.
Focal pieces in classic, colonial, and even historically themed rooms can be antiques. They contribute to the overall atmosphere of the room and work as great conversation starters.
The trend of having a single growing tree in a room, especially a stairwell, is blowing up for good reason. The tree adds a dynamic sense of life to the space, and works with the stairway's upward flow.
8. Vase collection
Those of us who love flowers surely have a cupboard loaded with vases just waiting for fresh cut blooms. But, a collection of the vases can stand out as decorative objects by themsleves.
