A large decorative mirror or a bold painting with vibrant colors is often chosen to be the focal point in a room. In this instance, the piece should be hung over a fireplace, or on a wall facing the entrance for maximum effect. Large wall mirrors can create space in a small room and can be used to great effect when hung opposite a window. They can also provide an interesting optical illusion when used along a narrow hallway.

Before you go out to get yourself some quality window treatment you should take some time and sit back and decide the kind of treatments you would really like to have for the room. try and visualize the window with the treatments you have reviewed in magazines and then try to customize them with what you have in mind.

By starting with the walls, you can set the mood and basic style for the rest of the room. Choose to paint the walls with bright colors such as red, blue and yellow, adding stenciled pictures to the walls. For a small girl, consider painting the walls a pastel shade of pink, adding a wide border around the top of the wall with wall paper, and then place a mural on the wall that fits the theme. A pastel pony or delicate flowers add punch and make the room unique.

Using accent pieces to spruce up your home shouldn't create a cacophony of various artifacts that just end up needing a good dusting every week. You are looking for spatial relationships that work well within each room of your house. So, if you start with the basics and then work your way from there you can enhance your home without cluttering it.

I've been asked many times over the years, how do I go about choosing a wall mirror that will fit in well with a particular room of my home? My answer to that is you have to know what room the wall mirror will be hung in and what style of mirror will match up with the theme of the room.

Square is good, but unusually-shaped mirrors can add an extra element of interest to a room. Choose mirrors that are wavy, long and thin, diamond shaped or triangular. Instead of one or two large mirrors, create a mosaic of mirrors by using several smaller mirrors placed together. Look for different glass styles. Instead of a smooth mirror, hang a mirror with beveled edges. Another option is to use frosted mirrors. Hang a mix of framed and unframed mirrors.

When using a group of mirrors, concentrate on choosing interesting frames in a variety of shapes and sizes. To create a cohesive grouping, you may want to consider using mirrors with the same or similarly colored frames. To arrange a group, hang the largest mirror first, and then add a smaller one of similar shape. Finish with yet another small mirror in a different shape. Space them all evenly on the wall.

Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.
