As depicted, select few high-quality pieces rather than an abundance, such as a statement sculpture and a tasteful assortment of table-top items for visual interest without overwhelming the space. Perfect for minimalist living or work areas, this approach pairs well with sleek, contemporary furniture and a neutral color palette to enhance the tranquil vibe.
