Here’s a little something that we don’t see too often: two distinct décor styles defined over the same interior space, providing two opposing design strategies for the same room layouts. This is the exciting work of Russian designer and we love the contrast ideas going all the way from one end of the spectrum to the other.
We begin with a youthful look, smoothed out in cool gray painted walls complete with huge Manga style murals.
Modern accessories flank the walls to add class to the comic art, whilst the nearby home office space remains clear, light and bright.
At the opposite end of the scale, we see the same home decorated in a far more deep and sumptuously sophisticated lounge décor, bathed in a chocolate brown textured wall-covering, and accented in a lunar theme through moon wall art and twin celestial lamps.
A gallery of landscape art provides pinpricks of colorful light and lift to the heavy scheme, and contrasting sofa with cushions provides plenty of interest to the snug space.
Whether a home has a MALE or a FEMALE owner, a little FEMININE touch can go a long way to making a harsh lined modern layout feel more like a cozy home. See the tricks of the trade on how to smooth things over with a slightly softer side.
Colorful scatter cushions with elegant motifs are key to the fun finish of this room. The otherwise neutral scheme gains great lift from the kaleidoscope of hues, which are picked up subtly by a miniature vase of blooms and bookcase accessories.
Floral feature walls behind the sofa and a curvaceous workstation add a delicate design element to the straighter furniture silhouettes in the room. A sweeping lighting arrangement compliments the organic prints in warm white LEDs.
Mall crystal drops add a subtle sparkle to the central lighting fixture in this room, whilst scatter cushions add a little personality and pop.
With so much technology to pack into our homes these days, we’re always looking for examples that manage to house their gadgets in good balance–avoiding overbearing towers of black boxes and a spaghetti junction of wires.
This home has an utterly enviable collection of big boys toys that merge with the contemporary interior without appearing jarring.
Even the bedroom gets a DOSE of the VIBES.
In the kitchen the homeowners wanted something to compliment the forward thinking design of the rest of their home, so installed a wall of appliances, as well as a bespoke floating breakfast bar holding vertically mounted taps
If you have white based living room décor, and you dread the thought of a complete overhaul, or committing to an entirely new solid color scheme, then fear not, there are plenty of other ways in which you can add punch to your existing interior.
If you find you love your new accent colors, you can go a little further by investing in colored furniture, but it’s also possible to anchor a floaty white room by using deep, rich wood tones, which will add neutral warmth and texture.
Color introduction doesn’t have to be overwhelming, try introducing a glow of orange, or pop of green via area rugs and lampshades, cushion covers and accessories, which are all easy to change out later if you get bored.
If you are happy with your pure white palette, and are looking to add impact in a more neutral way, then your light fitting is a great place to start. As your décor is already paired back in hue, then you can afford to go large with your pendant; think oversized drum shades or light reflecting sculptural glass.
Your white walls are the most versatile there is, but if you would like to add a splash of color to your backdrop too, then why not try painting a canvas in your accent color, or invest in a complimentary piece of art?
This selection of modern sofa designs comes to you with irregular outlines, rotating backrests and flexible sectional arrangements, you might just find something to suit you.

Black and bone are always a safe choice when it comes to interiors, a stripe can pep things up a bit.
Longer runs could create a waiting room effect so be careful with your layout.
Sectional sofas allow for flexibility; if you ever get tired of your room layout you could always try dividing up the pieces to create a new feel by separating the seats into two facing runs, or utilizing single seats.
Sofas work well when arranged in an L shape arrangement, which creates a cozy corner to cuddle up in at the end of the day.
