Design trends: nautical stripes, contrasting stair cases and layers of lighting

Create a focal point, such as a piece of art, a fireplace or even a statement light fixture. All other pieces in the room should be smaller, complimentary fixtures—not to take away from the star of the show.

Contrasting Stair Cases

Refinish your old staircases with a bold black and white contrast. They’ll look better than ever!


Bright and Bold

Sprinkle brightly colored pieces in a dark, contemporary room for a bold appeal. 


Layers of Light
