Unify important spaces with one focal element, and use other elements in the room to compliment it.
Having your favorite lime green Papasan chair and your husband’s favorite life-size cutout of John Elway will likely lead to both items fighting for attention.
With two powerful statement pieces, it can be hard to have a unified design. Instead, try agreeing on one item that is the focal item for each space.
It could be a unique piece of art or a central area rug. Select smaller accessories for the space that compliment the larger focal statement piece by using a similar color or material.
