Eye is one muscle and it likes you to give it a workout. In order to avoid your eyes from getting a boring feel by looking to your living room, give them something to look for. But do not try to go overboard. In most of living rooms a single focal point is just what your eyes need and is enough too. A brown square block wall is doing it all as one primary focal point in this room.
Other secondary items or focal points in this room are black tree like lamp, which is giving a great figurative look on back wall, next is a showpiece, which is looking like a ladder is coming out from black curtains, and last but not least is brown leather sofa and long laid back chair for just relaxing. In this room, there is a great selection of color and pattern from main focal point and applied it in little soft touches throughout this room.
