When it comes to design, not all rooms are created equal. While some spaces have a cohesive design, others have dramatic, eye-catching pieces and details that are the focal point of the space. Adding emphasis is a great way to draw the eye to a single element or design in a space, and it should be demanding enough to attract and hold attention. Here are a few stellar ways to use emphasis in unique and interesting ways in home design.
