Place a large mirror either directly across or diagonal from your window so that it can reflect the light, both natural and artificial, if you are low on windows, and allow the room to look larger.
Decorative elements also do wonders for creating a warm space in cold weather. Most country and log homes have wooden or stone flooring.

Decorative rugs are the perfect solution against both issues.

By focusing on color, space, and shape, contemporary interiors are sleek and fresh. To achieve the look of a contemporary home, it is important to stick to some basic rules.
