Trust us. We love a bit of drama in design, but sometimes less IS more. Take this contemporary living room tableau. Each shape is so strong the space doesn't call for a ton of ornamentation or flashy colors, yet the toches of pale gold add subtle warmth bringing a beautiful finish to the area.

Not only does the light woven ottoman serve as additional surface space, but it also balances the larger black coffee table with it's neutral tone. Making the whole area feel more harmonious.

Suppose you're lucky enough to have a separate room to work out in taking some time to make this space feel special is a great idea. Try breaking up the room by activity—a cardio machine, a space to roll out your mat, and stretch or practice yoga, a zone for weightlifting.

The low slanted walls in this living room make it challenging to have ample seating while not feeling crowded. The Modsy designer used several smart design solutions to make the space seem bigger and provide enough accommodation for a large group to feel comfortable. They choose a light color palette for the space, making it appear bigger they also selected foundational furniture which sits low to the ground making the ceilings seem higher.
