Why not use this effect to it's full potential. If you are creating a contemporary living room, why not use this space as your own personal gallery to show off a special sculpture or piece of wall art. You can use lighting to visually point everyone's eyes towards the piece as soon as they enter the room. You can even arrange the furniture in the room so guests can take a seat and contemplate the beauty in front of them.

The edges can be shaped, such as scalloped, rounded or straight. These are often favored because they can help to conceal any existing hardware that is used to hang other window treatments, thus providing a more seamless overall look in a room.

When it comes to colours and fabrics, it is of primary importance to consider your lifestyle before choosing a rug.

When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or "busy" decorative item.

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.

Use this safely on all floors as long as you get one with a solid rubber and not a sprayed on latex that can harm floors.
