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.

The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best. Moving a step ahead, a solid pad with some sort of texture on the surface is even better. This texture can safely grab your antique rug and keep it from crawling, hence reducing wear.

By starting with the walls, you can set the mood and basic style for the rest of the room. Choose to paint the walls with bright colors such as red, blue and yellow, adding stenciled pictures to the walls. For a small girl, consider painting the walls a pastel shade of pink, adding a wide border around the top of the wall with wall paper, and then place a mural on the wall that fits the theme. A pastel pony or delicate flowers add punch and make the room unique.

Victorian design styles are often used by people who love the feel of the nineteenth century and are yet implemented with modern conveniences. Common woods often used in cabinets are oak, cherry or sometimes mahogany and traditional colors are preferred. For such designs, contemporary hardware can work but should have a vintage feel for example iron or antique pseudo pewter. On the other hand, Southern and ocean-side area styles favor stucco as it endures well. This design style will typically have accented windows like the bay type windows or will have narrow, long encased or boxed windows. Often the doors are accented with shutters of wood or slate and painted over with vibrant colors. Clay pots and ceramic statues would complement the ceramic tile flooring, which is often seen in Mediterranean design. This design style will often have big open living areas that make good use of the outside weather and the use of brighter colors in fabrics like drapes would accentuate the design.

The contrast between your soft natural flowers and those of the sleek top of the vase is particularly interesting.
