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.

It's not uncommon for many people to decorate using their wall hangings as the basis for their accent piece selection. However, sometimes a wall hanging just doesn't lend itself to inspiration. You might find that using new accent pieces as your inspiration gives you a better ability to blend your looks.

If the window size is small then, a rod can be installed either below the line of ceiling or just above the trim. Extra panels that are long hang from them. This gives the image of the window being tall. For a large window, tone the scale of the window down by making it look simple. For tall windows, don't use panels that are long. Break these lengthwise by adding a swag or valence different from the remaining part of the design.

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.

How many times have you looked in a modern or contemporary home and noticed that it looks a lot like an art gallery? Why not use this effect to it's full potential. If you are creating a contemporary living room, why not use this space as your own personal gallery to show off a special sculpture or piece of wall art. You can use lighting to visually point everyone's eyes towards the piece as soon as they enter the room. You can even arrange the furniture in the room so guests can take a seat and contemplate the beauty in front of them.
