2.AMP UP THE STYLE.
"Dialing up the contrast creates instant drama. Pattern, materials and textures come alive when they are set against surfaces with opposing intensities. Contrast doesn’t only come in the form of dark and light. Contrasting styles – mixing traditional details with elements that are utterly modern can make a bold statement. Matching drapery and wallpaper for example, is a very traditional decorating technique, but when a gutsy black pattern is used the results are edgy, fun and unexpected."
To really drive your high-contrast décor home, try adding pieces that feel distinctly different from each other. You’d be surprised how well they can complement each other as long as they all fall under your overall design concept (think soft vs. bold, masculine vs. feminine).
Putting two contrasting textures together adds visual weight to the space, meaning that the components of your design will be able to draw the eye more easily. This works best when two contrasting textures such as natural textiles and manmade materials are used in close proximity of each other.
Natural greenery, soft-touch textiles, and woven accents are also easy ways to take a bit of the edge off of too-harsh contrast.
So whether you go for contrast in the form of differing hues, or decor pieces, just make sure to vary your tones and textures for a look that feels complete.
3.create depth and interest.
"Playing it too safe with color choices can result in a space that feels bland. Even the most beautiful objects and furniture pieces can go unnoticed if they are set amongst a sea of similar colors. Adding contrast to your space ensure every item pops. "
Depth creates sophisticated complexity in interior design, it calms the environment and allows smaller spaces to feel larger than their actual square footage. Interior designers introduce high contrast colors and finishes to make areas of the home unique and draw the eye to special pieces or furniture in the home.
There’s nothing more underwhelming than an interior that feels too flat. Adding contrast to your space is a foolproof way to ensure that doesn’t happen. For example, a far wall design in an accent color brightens up the entire room and create depth for balancing the interior dimensions, but two colorful occasional chairs in a far corner create a similar effect. Glossy textures and large mirrors which reflect light inside the room create a pleasant optical illusion of welcoming spaciousness and depth.Vibrant accents are also an excellent, smart, and modern way for creating depth in any room.
