1. Glamorize With Metallic Accessories

Try placing a round, metal vase on a low coffee table. The reflective quality of the vase helps to dress up the space by adding brilliance. Another accent idea is a collection of shiny spherical metal balls. Gather them in various sizes, and rest them alone in a group on a side table, or place them in a bowl, basket or container of your choice.

2. Use Stylish Light Fixtures to Add Drama

Hang a chandelier for the most impact, and consider one made from unique and unexpected materials that are different from the usual crystal versions. A chandelier with satin nickel or white shades, and highlighted with citrine nuggets, or frosted rock crystal gems or striped agate gems will really stand out.

3. Apply a  Design to Your Walls Instead

If you want something fluid and organic, go for a silhouette of branches, or a painted tree behind your couch. Those are just a couple suggestions. Let your imagination run wild, and stare at your walls a bit to allow something special to appear to you.

4. Mix Modern and Traditional Aesthetics

Table lamps can offer this perfect blend easily. You can select one with a Baroque style base, but made from something like polycarbonate. You can also keep the base traditional and make the shade a modern drum twist. Remember to not get stuck in one time period.

5. Supply Colour with Vibrant Pillow Fabric

If you have a neutral palette in your room, cover your pillow accents with bright prints. Mix as many prints together that you like. Prints can compliment each other nicely without having to be an intended set.
