Rules of Interior Design – Emphasis

What is your favorite room in your space?  Most likely it is a room with a wow factor.   In design this is called the focal point or emphasis.  It is what draws you into the room.  It’s the view you never tire of, a gorgeous fireplace, a great staircase, etc.

Of course not every room has a built in focal point, but this principal of emphasis can be achieved in a number of ways.  Remember, the focal point is the first thing you notice when you enter the room.

It it could be an interesting art piece, a beautiful bed, a great sofa, or even a feature wall in a great color or texture.


Look around your space, every room has a focal point, make the most of yours!
