Keep a room with varied furniture clean by using the same color throughout the different shapes. Note how the chairs draw on gray leather with clear detailing (tied together with the clear coffee table).
Combine. When several colors and finishes are combined, such as the whites, birches, and dark wood in this room, remember to tie each color in with something else. If too many elements stand alone in their uniqueness, the room will become bohemian and flea-market, which might be the goal. But keep things simple by tying everything together. For instance, the chair ties in with the lamp shade and colors in the textiles, the lamp base and desk tie in with the mirror's frame, and the white bed cover gets inspiration from the door and window dressing.
Keep it simple. Now this photo does merge toward a more traditional bohemian look (and all of those cords would make me crazy--or trip) but what this room does excellently is keep a simplicity. Amidst the varied finishes of furniture and patterns of textile, the room is set up simply and each element sticks to a simple and straightforward shape.
