Contrast creates interesting homes

Give your home exciting content with the aid of a well thought out color scheme. Just as if you would create a play or a movie, a home also requires a certain amount of dramaturgy. A black staircase in an otherwise white room really makes a statement. A dark floor as well as a dark ceiling defines the height of the room making you experience the ceiling as lower than it is.

An alcove painted black in an otherwise white room creates not only a cozy, relaxing space but also a room within a room feature. Or make for example a passage between two bright rooms dark, and you will get an exciting transition. And a great way to highlight an architectural detail is by emphasising it with a contrasting color.

A dark color can also be used to accentuate a feature such as a bookcase. Or to create a striking backdrop for your collection of pictures and paintings, making them really stand out. Maybe highlight one wall in a room as a eye-catcher. Light meets dark. Soft faces matches hard. Make the flow of your home become more interesting.

Which of the rooms inspires you the most? Can you see yourself using of some of the ideas in your own home?
