To enhance the visual appeal, you can also place some lovely artificial flowers in some beautifully crafted vases, small antiques, and artifacts, a stack of various types of books and magazines, fragrant candles, pictures of nature, wildlife, portraits, etc., or anything of your choice! Chairs and sofas also can be left by the side to enable the guests to relax once in a while during their strolls and rounds.
Tip: Choose the items carefully so that none of them looks out of place.
Go for vibrant wallpapers:
