Decorating "Secrets"

Housebeautiful.com features a slideshow entitled, 20 Decorating Secrets.  Here are a few "secrets".  

One pair of pillows on a sofa looks skimpy.  Use two pairs of contrasting color, pattern, texture.

The most versatile coffee table you'll ever own is an ottoman topped with a tray.

Nothing softens a lonely corner in a big room like a potted tree.

An open armoire is more interesting than a closed one. Let people into your secret world.

Use a real rug in the bathroom.  It can easily withstand more wear than the occasional wet foot.

Do you already incorporate these ideas in your home?  Personally, I love having a real rug in my bathroom and I find filling a corner with a large plant is an inexpensive way to take up space and make the room feel softer and alive.  
HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE
