Whether you own too many accessories or have multipurpose rooms at home, having multiple focal points in your decor is inevitable—sometimes, it can even pull away from the beauty of your space instead of doing the opposite. No need to worry, you don't have to choose between two displays nor get rid of them. It's all about styling around these nooks and making them work together. Here are a few tips you can do: 

Make use of dividers.

Open layout homes are spacious and airy, but it can be challenging to establish areas. If you have this dilemma, consider investing in a divider to separate spaces so guests can focus on different displays per room. Barn doors are cute if you want to go for a rustic vibe but sheer curtains can keep rooms bright!

If you can find a common theme between the two focal points, consider combining them in one area. For example, instead of having two separate corners for a music or gaming nook and your TV is in the living area, create one entertainment space instead. 

Switch two rooms.

If it will help you achieve a more streamlined space, consider switching the purpose of any two rooms at home. In modern houses, the dining room is usually just as big as the living area so changing up the layout of your home won't be difficult.

Move furniture around.

Who says all furniture pieces have to line up against a wall? Contrary to popular belief, this technique draws away from the nooks you want people to focus on. Try arranging your sofa and single seating at the center of the room to give it greater flexibility and a more inviting vibe. 

Keep the palette monochromatic.

There's nothing wrong with colorful spaces but using one too many hues can make a space look messy and undone. Avoid this by sticking to basics and letting your decor pieces do the talking instead.
