Beyond basic decor, lighting is important for creating a desirable atmosphere. Cold weather typically brings shorter daylight hours. Lack of natural light causes a variety of strains, so prevent problems with accent lighting. Kerosene and oil lamps, spicy scented candles, and fireplaces are ideal for creating ambience and improving a room.
A staple of any contemporary look is the use of black and white. This allows the homeowner to rotate out decorative elements when they become less trendy for something more in style. Most contemporary rooms are painted in a flat white. Lately in contemporary trends, light gray as a neutral has been making a comeback, also allowing for accessories to pop.
