So, if you start with the basics and then work your way from there you can enhance your home without cluttering it.

It may have some traditional elements appearing here and there like glass panels or raised accents separated by wood strips. Lustrous wood finishes can be highlighted with metals like brass or metallic-tone hardware to give them a shine and standout appeal. While traditional design is charming and elegant in its own way, contemporary design is a pleasure for the eyes. Contemporary design would feature sleek cabinets, plain panel doors. Home accent hardware to go with this design should be inconspicuous and subtle. Unobtrusive hardware would bring out/highlight the contemporary design.

If you're going for angular square or rectangle pillows you want them to be in the 16 - 26 inch range, no bigger but in a few cases they may be smaller. These pillows generally need to be large enough to full showcase a few passes of a given patter or even a large block of solid color. Rectangular pillows are really nice because the oblong shape is usually unexpected and adds a bit of extra flair. In most cases you will not be opting for a circular pillow, and unless you are an experienced designer or just know that you've got the stuff you should be cautious when approaching your sofa with spherical cushions. Round pillows tend to not blend well with the overall angels of your furniture, unless of course you a have very unique piece such as a cylinder bed or circular patterns in your rooms decor.

If you're a balance freak like I am you may not be able to help the impulse to place an even number or either side, this is OK but takes a little from the "chic" factor. Also, opting of a smaller number of larger pillows rather than a ton of small ones provides a much cleaner look, but for certain motifs and backdrops you may want a really full appearance where the smaller pillows will be ideal.

Tips for Using Vacuum Tools - If you choose to use a vacuum tool attachment in lieu of the actual vacuum cleaner itself, take care not to use excessive suction. Many vacuum cleaners allow you to control the amount of suction that is used in such situations; set yours so that it's not sucking too hard on your area rug. Watch Out for the Fringe - The fringed border of an area rug should be avoided when vacuuming. Fringe can fray or even get wrapped up around the beater brush of a vacuum cleaner. Nothing detracts from the appearance of a gorgeous rug quite like stray pieces of fringe, so always use caution.
