Living Room With Contrast

Balance dark walls with light furniture.

"I wanted to create an elegant, masculine atmosphere in this home," says Vancouver designer Kelly Deck. "To achieve this, I panelled most of the walls with grey-stained oak and brightened the mood with light furnishings." For functionality, choose a variety of seating, like a chaise, sofa and armchairs.
