Dark and bold colors actually make a small space appear larger and more dramatic. Paint the walls, furniture, and crown molding in a saturated color, then pair your monochromatic color scheme with something unexpected, like this white Lucite coffee table that lights up from within.
This streamlined studio keeps things light and airy, with sheer curtains, Lucite bar stools and white-and-chrome furniture. A black bedspread provides a dark slash against the white, while a red pillow draws off of the red in the painting over the bed.
Sleek furniture in shades of gray create a calming, contemporary base for this modern living room. Built-in bookshelves house favorite accessories and art pieces, while floral-printed Roman shades bring pattern to the space. A Lucite coffee table takes center stage to keep the entire space airy and bright.
This contemporary bedroom was designed around a passion for the color purple and old Hollywood nostalgia. A wrapped accent wall was plastered with a deep eggplant color and smooth velvet-like finish. The flooring (cut pile carpet) is also a deep eggplant with touches of silver-grey. The bright white furniture and a luxurious upholstered headboard add high color contrast and bold graphic accents. Glamorous accessories, such as mirrored tabletops, a black velvet Lucite bench, black lampshades and a zebra area rug punctuate and anchor the bold color combinations.
