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.

Drapery and curtains are two entirely different sets of window treatments in interior design; though the terms are often used interchangeably. Drapery refers to pleated panels that hang from decorative rods or poles. This type of window treatment is moveable and can be opened during the day and closed in the evening.

Dress up your bathrooms with framed mirrors and use them to highlight your bathroom fixtures or stylish lamps you have. Choose from a range of options beginning with a wall to wall mirror behind the counter to double or triple matching mirrors. If you have twin basins in your bathroom, then twin mirrors are a perfect choice. And if your bathroom doubles as your dressing room, then a full-length mirror becomes a must-have accessory.

You will usually want to pick an odd number of pillows somewhere around three and seven for a natural asymmetrical look. If you're a balance freak like I am you may not be able to help the impulse to place an even number or either side, this is OK but takes a little from the "chic" factor. Also, opting of a smaller number of larger pillows rather than a ton of small ones provides a much cleaner look, but for certain motifs and backdrops you may want a really full appearance where the smaller pillows will be ideal.

Basically it's what you commonly think of as stuffing; the stuff that they put inside stuffed animals and pillows. It's pros contain that it's inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere. Those are two very important features. The one con that I can think of off the top of my head is that it's sometimes hard to get it stuffed in evenly. It's sometimes thinner in a certain place than it is in the rest of the pillow. Or several lumps and bumps throughout. But practice does make better, that's for sure. You can also control the firmness of the pillow. That's another pro. Plus, you can make the pillows in absolutely any size you want. That's just that much more control. With a form, you can only make a pillow in the sizes that they offer the form.

Here your choice is a matter of your own taste. Some people think that beveled glass mirrors are more elegant, while others prefer the clean look of flat edged glass wall mirrors. All you have to do is shop and compare until you have made your decision.

Although the rug is what you see on the surface, there is much more that goes into the actual installation process. As you can imagine, a rug is not simply laid on top of the concrete or wood that is already in place. While this could be done, it is not something that you want to do if you want the job completed the right way. When it comes down to it, the rug pad that is used is just as important as what you see on the surface. If the correct rug pad is used, you will recognize this in a number of different ways. Of course, if the rug pad is left out, or a low quality option is used, you are going to notice this as well; just not in the same way.
