Most people think the design focus of a room is the wall or a piece of furniture. Why not switch it up and let the floor take the lead? Using the walls as a neutral background, pair furniture (in contrasting but neutral tones) with a bold pattern or colored area rug. Tie the whole thing together with wall art, or accessories such as throws and pillows in the same color family.
