   While entering a room, your eyes can rest without suffering competing demands for visual attention which tend to focus in a particular point in that room. That, focal point of attraction is an art called as “Emphasis“. In modern buildings architects and interiors used commonly to get a stunning effect for that place.


In every home, we can decorate our room by this design principle. It can be a large picture, fire place, huge rugs, single wall color with decorative paint, wall paneling ,huge single furniture, etc. Likewise in various ways, we can emphasis a room.
