Symmetrical Art

Instead of one big art piece, make a statement in doubles. Symmetry never goes out of style, and using two pieces of art to flank a chandelier will always make a dramatic impact. You can achieve the same effect with photography or poster prints, too.

Woven Baskets

That coffee table bowl? Mount it to the wall! We are here for the basket trend. Like hanging hats on a wall, clustering woven baskets creates more texture than flat photos or paintings. Plus, it's a great way to add more natural fibers in a space if you have a jute or sisal area rug. You can usually find woven baskets for cheap at the thrift store, but we also love this set from Pottery Barn.

Curated Vintage

Some say open shelving is messy, but you just have to group similar items together to make it look tidy and intentional. This narrow niche is both storage and decor as all of the mismatched teacups are clustered together. And that row of green vintage glass bottles is just stunning.

Antique Mirror

You can't go wrong with a gold-framed mirror. It's classic, timeless and works on any wall in a dining room, from behind the head chair to above a long buffet. But actual antique, ornate mirrors are very expensive. Like luxury car expensive. Enter the Gleaming Primrose Mirror. This Anthropologie find is like a modern-day heirloom, and HGTV hosts from Jillian Harris to Joanna Gaines love it and use it in their spaces, too.

$498 and up at anthropologie
