Regardless of what look you’re going for, you can really set a space off with additional pieces of furniture.

Finish With Furnishings

Again, based on your overall theme, you might want to work with different textures that can create the right vibe or even add in ornaments. Either way, it’s often the finishing touches that can make or break a space, so make your final furnishings count.
