A striking design element doesn't have to be huge or loudly colored; this hanging round shelf with a light display of decorative items catches attention but doesn't scream for it. Seen on Design Love Fest.

This display of over-size vintage items happens to be nautical themed, but anything old and hang-able could make for a stunning wall collage. Seen on Design*Sponge.

This ceiling display spotted on Design*Sponge is actually an art installation, but we think it could be an update to the hanging ceiling cluster of paper lanterns, instead using the textural, macrame and natural fiber wall hanging trend so popular today.

This is a whole-weekend project, but isn't this colorful, 3D pixelated wall seen on East Coast Creative something else?

We're always telling you to watch your proportions when adding new design elements into a space, but sometimes breaking the rules and going too big with lighting looks real good. My Scandinavian Home features a great example.

This wood DIY honeycomb pattern was used over a mantel, but this idea would be striking on just about any vertical surface in a home; Seen on East Coast Creative.

Not exactly new or novel, but this angled black painted accent wall in this house spotted on sfgirlbybay is the very definition of striking!
