Design Concept: CONTRAST

March 4th, 2013

There is nothing that adds a little interest to a space like some CONTRAST. There’s a reason why people say “opposites attract”. Mixing contrasting styles, colors, and shapes will create interesting lines and pleasing palettes.

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.
