“Ever wish for the thick, rich, hard-high-gloss finish of actual lacquer on a piece of furniture, frame or home décor? Well now all you have to do is spray it on- and a pale, washy, faded piece can transform itself to an edgy, chic high-fashion statement piece set in lacquer. This spray-on wonder is an exclusive product to Amy Howard and is not available anywhere else; it can change the life of any furniture piece like no other product can.”

This traditional room with a fireplace centerpiece contrasts beautifully to this modern dining room table and chairs.

Black and White are two colors that always create beautiful contrast. The white desk against the black wall along with the chair’s contrasting upholstery adds interest to the vignette.

This blue and white dining room is full of contrasting shapes. The square bench and chairs contrast with the circular details in the backs of the chairs. The round lines of the scalloped curtain details and the circular mirror also contrast to the square dining table. Not to mention, the blue POPS against the white chairs.

Contrast is a subtle, easy way to add interest to your space.
