What Houzz contributors are saying:
Have one ‘wow’ roomDon’t have the time, energy or inclination to deep-clean your home from top to bottom? Concentrate on one show-stopping space – usually your living room or kitchen-diner, or anywhere friends, family or house guests tend to gather. Having one clean and tidy room to retreat to may also help you feel better about the chaos that reigns elsewhere.
Mix it upIf your room has an eclectic look, mixing things up is a great way to keep your mantelpiece interesting. A single statement piece works well to anchor the look, but then add items in front and around it to build it up. Combine various colours and styles to maintain an informal feel and try to vary the size and shape of your pieces.Here, a bold print provides the centrepiece, while a group of small objects have been casually placed to the side of it. The fireplace surround benefits from little alcoves which are perfect for housing bits and bobs.
