One of the easiest ways to adding an interior designer-styled appeal to your space is to arrange the stuff you have in a manner that is visually pleasing and creates an element of interest. 

Drawing inspiration from Juan Montoya’s quote, “A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy,” we have put together a few tips that will help you master the art of display!


1. Pair It Up

All good things come in pairs! Pair up two candle holders or lanterns of the same design but different sizes to create a high and low that directs the viewer’s attention to a particular space. Coffee tables, console tables and shelves are great areas to try out this trick.

2. Pyramid-ify

Create a pyramid décor setting by keeping larger décor elements in the center, and surrounding them with smaller ones. This structure focuses the viewer’s eyes towards the center, so be sure to add the best in the center. This structure works particularly well on long narrow stages such as sideboards and single shelves.

3. Create Highs and Lows

Use multiple objects of different heights and create a stylized clutter with them. Shelves are ideal spaces to do this in. The variation in height makes the viewer’s eyes dance across the entire space.

4. Bookend It

Bookending refers to using two same elements or bookends on either ends to create a center stage in between. Lamps, candle stands and lanterns work particularly well as bookends. Use the center stage space for displaying a painting or an assortment of pictures. This is a balanced display calling the viewer’s attention to all the elements.

5. Use Color Contrast

A décor accessory that adds a contrasting pop of color instantly draws attention to itself, highlighting the space it is kept in. Use bright vibrant accessories such as vases, candles and cushions to draw focus to the area you want to highlight.
