Most furniture is predominantly rectangular. When you're adding accents it's good to include circular shapes to play against the strong horizontal and vertical lines. The basket, table, wooden goblet and medallions work wonderfully with this sofa (which is not as squared off as most). There's also lots of texture in this room. If you can't count at least five different textures in a space it is probably not that exciting! You rarely see beige paired with yellow, but doesn't it look fabulous? In case you didn't notice.... spray paint medallions meant for ceiling applications and use them as wall decor.
