Creativity is a vital element to make a statement.. Paintings, artefacts, wall hangings, the kind of furniture, all add structure and definition to the dimension of the room. Never over-do working on these defining elements as it can be a major faux pas, and can look to chaotic.
Storage is one factor to have a clutter-free home. Try to utilise every inch of available space and create storage wherever possible, without being too cramped. Tip: A concealed storage cabinet is a great idea. Simple open shelves with metal frames, look elegant and do not make the space appear too confined.
