A large-scale item (ie. an armoire or large painting) adds drama, scale and a focal point to almost any room.
Try grouping like items together when accessorizing. A few glass vases may not be noticed throughout the room but group three of them together and they will have more impact.
When assessing what to keep in a room and what to put away, try taking everything out and putting them back - slowly, one by one - stopping when it looks good yet uncluttered.
