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.
Wall decor in your home is almost as important as the furnishings-whilst some homes might look great with absolutely no wall mirrors or wall art, most will look rather dull. A well chosen painting or mirror can greatly enhance any room, but it is vital that the piece is hung correctly. Pictures and wall mirrors should be hung at eye level. This depends on whether the majority of people will be standing or seated in the room at any given time. For example, in a dining room, a piece of wall art or a wall mirror could be hung lower.
With a contemporary or modern space, you want to stick with things that are sleek and free from intricate details. A single large mirror or abstract pieces that are square, round or triangular in shape work well with this type of decor. For those who love a warm, inviting appeal, artwork can be a bit more detailed. Tapestries, prints, and framed artwork are more country themed, consisting of rich, warm colors such as rust, cream, blue, pumpkin and gold. Just be sure to carry through with the overall color of the room, so that your wall decor complements or contrasts with furnishings, floors and other accents.
