Create a focal point. There are leading roles and supporting cast members in any production. The same holds true in design. Choose your star and make it the focal point to anchor a room.

Your focal point might be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, a mantel and art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom.
All on, the rug is large enough to place all of the furniture legs on top of it. This creates a more luxurious feel. For this, bigger is better.
