Want a Home With Mystique? Play With Light and Dark
There are many elements of home décor you can contrast, but the most basic — light versus dark tones — packs an unmistakable punch. And don’t worry about being too even-handed: if both elements are exactly matched it’s hard for either to stand out. In a “low-contrast” modern living room, say one with 80 percent white tones, just a few strong dark accents will catch the eye. And if you don’t want to refresh your furniture to create that look, pick a special effects wall finish that achieves the same effect, like pairing a deep blue wall with a cheery yellow chair. Be inspired by the Stylist’s Collection from Dulux Ambiance, and suddenly your whole home can feel chic.
