TIPS AND TRICKS

Table Setting

Your dining room should feel like a favorite restaurant – a place where friends and family come together to talk, dine and share. Where trim is more traditional, painting it monochromatically in Web Gray can present a welcome, modern change … and bring a bit of drama. Furthermore, a small dining room can feel much bigger as the walls visually recede. There’s more room for guests’ eyes to enjoy the clean lines of a modern table.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Creating a Focal Point

Creating a focal point in a room is a great design basic. The Alabaster fireplace contrasting the soft Agreeable Gray on the walls makes the fireplace feel clean and updated. It also creates a beautiful focal point for the room from which to center furniture. Choosing deep-toned furniture and lighter window treatments can help balance warm and cool, light and heavy. Modern bookshelves also bring balance to a traditional room.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Kitchen Calm

A great deal of distraction in the room, from appliances and fixtures to dishes and cabinetry. A neutral is calming and clean. Using a darker color as a base helps ground the space – making it a popular technique for kitchen islands. Cabinetry in Naval is a modern approach and using subway tile for the backsplash is more traditional. Modern and traditional come together to bring nice balance to the heart of the home.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Monochromatic Peace

Small office spaces can appear much larger with a monochromatic design. Urbane Bronze is a modern, yet still traditional, natural color that is dramatic and cozy at the same time. Bring in a mirror to reflect light and make the room appear larger still. Play with different shapes and sizes within the bookshelf. And embrace bronze, brass, copper and other metals in fixtures and accents to add a luxurious touch to workspaces.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Sage Sophistication

Wainscotting is a perfect place to tell a monochromatic story. This one, in Clary Sage, is a story inspired by nature. This is a great shade to bring the outside in for a calming, yet colorful neutral. For another natural approach, embrace natural shapes. Play with the contrasts: the curve of a sofa arm and coffee table and chair against sleek lines on the wall. Finally, bring in greenery to complement your nature-inspired backdrop.
