High contrast interiors are timeless, create depth and interest as well as create balance. Using any of the elements of design, a skilled designer can create a dynamic composition through the use of contrast. As a principle of art, contrast refers to the arrangement of opposite elements and effects. For example, light and dark colors, smooth and rough textures, large and small shapes. Contrast can be used to create variety, visual interest, and drama in interior design.
