"Color, color, color.
It is important not to overwhelm a room with too much though, so it's a delicate balance. Throw pillows, blankets, ottomans, window treatments, and shelf linings are a great ways to introduce color without overwhelming the space. It's also a lot of fun to mix and match patterns; stripes and dots can be a great combo when placed subtly." —DKOR Interiors
"Our favorite designer trick is to layer
. Incorporate modern and rustic, vintage and new, inexpensive, as well as investment pieces. We strive to make everything feel cohesive and acquired over time. By layering lighting, furniture, and accessories, it creates a one of a kind look that fits your personality." —North Fork Design Co.
"I love to nestle collectibles and accessories on a tray
. It keeps the room looking organized and reminds everyone where things belong." —Garrison Hullinger Interior Design
