If you really want to have a major impact in your modern and contemporary decor one way to do that is to have an explosion of color. If you have done any shopping for modern decor items you have no doubt seen a lot of white, black and chrome pieces as well as some that are in bright and vibrant colors. The way you use these brighter pieces is as an accent in a room that is more traditionally dressed. This means if you have a room that is painted white, with black furniture, you would choose one area of the room to add an explosion of color. This could be a bright accent table or chair on one side of the room that gives the entire space a splash color and brings it to life.
Lighting is an important consideration for wall art. Carefully placed spotlights can draw attention to an attractive piece of artwork. The lighting does, however, need to be subdued to avoid inadvertent glare. Be careful to balance the room by not placing all your wall decor in one half of the room. Experiment with the positioning before you commit to hanging the pieces. You can create a nice touch of diversity by using different sized frames in paintings and mirrors.
When deciding which wall to use, choose the first one you see when entering the house or the room. Use accent wall decors to define or separate a distinct area from a larger space. This is perfect for open plan houses to characterize the living area, the dining, reading area etc. There are usually two implementations of accent walls. In most cases, accent wall is a bold color against neutral walls. The other version is using a more dominant color against other wall of the same hue.
