I love to place a unique furniture piece in an entry or the first room you see when you step into a house. This unique piece usually gives your house a sense of balance and pulls the entire space together.
Recently, I finished a home in Potomac, Maryland where we placed this beautiful pagoda shelf in a living room near the entry. When you enter the house this is the first area you see and it creates a conversation piece or “wow” factor.
No matter what chaos is going on in your space, one unique design element in your entry can create a sense of balance and organization, which can be good for the soul.
Do you have a conversation piece in your house? It could be a baby grand piano in the living room, which may bring up an entire conversation about music. In my house, I have a bright abstract painting over my favorite chest. The piece always puts a smile on my face especially on those rainy days.
