8. Your ‘focal points’ are all over the placeIf you walk into a room and nothing – or everything – catches your eye, then it has no focal point. This much-used designer’s term simply means a primary place for the eye to rest before taking in the whole space. A room without one lacks life, balance and harmony.What to do A focal point could be an architectural feature, a view, a piece of art, a fireplace, a statement furniture piece, a mirror, a textural surface or a stunning rug, as seen here. It’s easier to start with a focus and plan the rest of the room’s decor around it. If you prefer to work with what you already have, decide what the focal feature will be and then arrange existing furniture to direct attention toward it.
