Transitional is a comfortable style that draws from traditional and contemporary lines. This popular style works well for updating a traditional home without going in an entirely different decorating direction. If your room already has a strong style story, simple additions won’t detract from what you already have in there. If your room is neutral or decorated in simple furnishings, then look for dynamic new pieces that give your space that pulled-together look.
Try a dark wall color for a bold room update. Dark walls create an intimate and inviting feeling in a room. They are great for living rooms, libraries, dining rooms and bedrooms. When you use dark color on the walls, keep the floor finish lighter. The deep blue wall color in this entry highlights the patterned tile floor, making it the focus of the room. Use this technique to show off a beautiful floor or carpet. Add a mirror and other reflective accents to bounce light and to extend the space.
Remember that you can think of materials as a colour contrast too," Amy points out. "For example, with Neptune Flax Blue paint, oak is one of its best partners because it combines both a tonal and textural foil. So, bring that in through flooring and furniture - and even in aspects like lamp bases."
