This can be achieved with a mirror, portrait, wall art, or even antlers hug over a fireplace or cabinet.  Another ideas to achieve an beautiful focal point for your family room is a unique piece of furniture like a piano, armoire, or custom art piece.

The right coffee table.

Choose a coffee table that stands out and quickly establishes the theme behind the rooms decor.  This can be dark rustic wood, simply black, or even a coffee table with glass or tile.  Don’t forget to add some decor accessories on top of your coffee table for maximum impact.

Fireplaces can make all the difference.

While not everyone can afford to reface their fireplace with custom stone, there are some great options with man made stone from manufactures like Eldorado Stone.  A lower cost option is to consider beefing up your current fireplace mantle by layering different types of moldings found at your local hardware store like home depot.
