The bright colors, according to the designer, should be added by darker elements – black or black glossy, grey, dark furniture upholstery, carpets, or walls. While the brighter interior details stand out the neutral background, the contrast itself is a sign of good taste. The vivid combination make the space organized and when played with textures of fabrics and materials, the overall effect is enhanced.

Interior decoration matters much when it comes to contemporary design. Unusual interior details like small side tables, and custom mirrors give a fashionable look. Even though the bright colors are given that much attention in modern apartment and interior design, monochrome elements have long been fashionable; they have not lost their popularity, on the contrary – when used with smart contrast, they become the limelight of the whole design.
