Focal Point Tips for Every

French Country Room

Your bedroom, one of the most luxurious rooms in your home, other than the bath. You have gorgeous comfy bedding on a bed that you love and night stands to die for. Your beautiful area rug anchors all of the furniture.

TIP 1

IS THERE SOMETHING IN THE ROOM THAT IMMEDIATELY DRAWS YOUR EYE TO IT?

But is there something that immediately draws your eye? Maybe it's a gorgeous crystal chandelier, or metal chandelier? Maybe it's your to die for nightstands? Or maybe there isn't anything in particular that draws you eye.

TIP 2

WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU SEE UPON ENTERING THE ROOM?

So with this said, what's the first thing you see upon entering your bedroom? Are their windows or a bare wall? Maybe it's your bed with a small writing desk on the other side?

This is the first time ever that I've shown my sketches. I hope you like them.

The first sketch on the top left is of one of your to die for night stands. I chose to give it a bird theme, maybe because it's spring - not sure. So on top of your night stand, there's a large glass lamp with a neutral drum shade and to the right of itis an antique chair spring with a birds nest on top with moss balls. Above the nightstand is a small shelf - just the width of the night stand and I've added a larger size bird with a bowl of moss balls. The decor is very easy and will become a focal point when done on both night stands.

The sketch on the top to the right is a small writing desk with a computer, medium size glass lamp with drum shade and a bowl of moss balls. On the shelf above it is a few books with topiary's on either side and two large wood candle holders.

The sketch on the bottom left is a gorgeous idea for either your crystal chandelier or your metal chandelier. This is called a ceiling medallion and their absolutely gorgeous. I actually had one for a chandelette that I had in one of my bathrooms that I painted to resemble the finish on the chandelette. They come in all white, so you can do whatever you'd like with it. If you like this idea and would like to try it, first buy a ceiling medallion wider than your chandelier. If your chandelier is gold, then paint the medallion gold - if it's brass, paint the medallion brass, etc. Then after you've painted your medallion, take a piece of medium sandpaper and slightly distress it to age it a bit.

The sketch on the bottom right is of your blank wall with windows on either side. In between the windows I would put a very large piece of french decor that resembles an antique. Here I've shown two large wood doors with an ornate pattern on them.

TIP 3

THE THINGS YOU LOVE

Use your imagination. The things you love are the most important when creating a focal point. Empty walls are like a blank canvas.

Now with your living room, there's a lot to work with in building a focal point because there's usually a lot of wall space and a lot of furniture, including bookcases, an armoire, or a sideboard.

Adding lot's of new pillows to your sofa in neutral colors, including some with gold sewn in would be gorgeous. Then adding gold lamps to your side tables would make a spectacular focal point.

Your bathroom without a doubt needs a small crystal chandelier over your tub with a new luxurious shower curtain and antique style crates in the tub area along your back. Just stack your gorgeous towels in the antique style crates and add lots of candles on top of the crates.

As you can see, creating a focal point in every room of your home isn't has difficult has it sounds.
