1. Choose the right scale. Larger items fill the space better than smaller ones. Here the large wicker tray is the correct scale to fill both the height and width of the space.
2. Use objects with varying heights and textures. Choose objects with differing heights to add interest. The pottery urns and greenery add a pop of color and texture.

3. Display a collection. Choose items that are similar in color or style to create impact. Varying the height of the objects keeps it from being monotonous.
4. Keep it simple. There can be too much of a good thing. A uniform palette or leaving open space allows the eye to rest and the other objects to shine.
Stick to these basic principles and you will be happy with the results. Filling in the gaps above cabinets creates a finished look and gives your space a warm and inviting feel.
