For example, there is modern design scheme which has sleek finishes, a neutral color scheme, and the main focus is geometry and angular shapes. If you have more contemporary style, it doesn’t mean you have to follow all the “rules”. Soft, warm and cozy works well; it is just the use of brighter bolder colors on your accent rugs and furniture. If you’re an outdoors person or love nature, Rustic may be the perfect scheme for you. Rustic elements include the use of stone, wrought iron, natural fabrics (cotton, linen, wool, leather and suede), metal and woods. Pretty much the rustic interior brings in color and ambiances from nature.
