When a space is primarily white and clutter-free, simple everyday objects like a well-made chair or your favorite puffer jackets can become a colorful focal point. Less is more when it comes to Scandi-style so choose what’s out on display carefully and you’ll love the final result.
The Williamson home is filled with meaningful objects, art and photographs featured throughout the home, as in this living room bookshelf which becomes a kind of 3-dimensional scrapbook of the family through the years.

As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers brightened a dark corner space by adding colored plants, fruits and colorful, vintage glass bottles. To help keep the small space feeling open and bright, glass paneled upper cabinets were installed helping to create an authentic, vintage feel to the space.
Eclectic objects resting on an architectural balustrade console and deep windowsill in the living room include a pair of seventeenth-century Tunisian marble vessels, French gold dore candlesticks and an eighteenth-century Venetian damask coffer. Simple linen sheers informally frame the windows.
Create a fun and modern Christmas tree arrangement with a few small natural objects combined with some bright colors. Hot glue pebbles, acorns, pine cones, twigs or other natural elements onto a styrofoam cone base. Once the cone is completely covered use a heavy coat of acrylic paint to color your Christmas tree. You can make all of your trees the same color, or create an arrangement of complementing colors to fit your decor.
Sometimes smaller items grouped together create an even more interesting wall than using one big piece of art. Clocks can be both useful and decorative. As seen on HGTV's Buying and Selling With the Property Brothers
Graphic shapes are an integral part of designing children's spaces, especially if the shapes are easy to identify from close up and far away. Here, basic cardboard cones are outfitted as tree sculptures with paint and beaded garland.

Neutral tones dominate in the space but there are plenty of small pops of color that come through in the accessories. These festive beads, colorful African dolls and small fern balls are grouped together to create an interesting and bright mix.
