Create a feature wall. Embrace the dark side with a single feature wall. The black wall in this room helps to put the bed and lights at center stage while the remaining white walls and crisp white bedding keep the look airy.
Mix in modern details. This kitchen has big Western cabin bones – a stone fireplace wood cabinets large exposed trusses. But the restrained details add modern flair. The graphic rug is a fresh interpretation of Navajo style; the oversized pendant in glossy black adds a big modern touch.
If you favor cooler hues try a palette of blue‐grays then spice it up with hints of hot red. This is a terrific palette for an office or a kid's or teen's bedroom. The grays have a soothing vibe but the heart‐racing red injects some energy into the space.
Rethink the antlers. The form is widely available in resin or ceramic versions these days. Jason Miller designed this striking ceramic sconce. Feather wallpaper adds a Native American element in unexpected colors.
A touch of luxury. Leather is synonymous with luxury. Here the touchable headboard doubles as a room divider and is offset with white cast‐concrete light fittings to keep the look contemporary and interesting.
Mix in some monochrome. This dark hall dances on the edge of overwhelming but the monochromatic geometric pattern white marble and gleaming gold cupboard handles have turned the potentially dark tunnel into an enchanting corridor.
Here's another green‐accented kitchen but this hue has more blue in it and creates a nice midcentury modern vibe. You can't go wrong pairing this pretty hue with white and light‐toned woods.
Treat your feet. Luxurious underfoot artificial grass brings the joy of walking barefoot in the garden without the maintenance of a real lawn. It's perfect for creating a relaxing garden mood on a roof terrace or balcony where natural turf is impractical.
