The Manila Bulletin reports that, while contemporary homes have become popular in recent years, too much emphasis on sleek, metal surfaces, neutral colors and uncluttered floors can leave a house feeling cold and uninviting.

Instead, homeowners should focus on setting up several more eccentric decorations to provide contrast in more modern abodes. This way, a room can be fashionable, yet intimate and cozy.

The news source suggests that a shaggy carpet or hardwood flooring can bring some dazzle to a room that would otherwise feel too sterile. These are easy furnishing to maintain and can serve as a welcome contrast to the chrome, glass and steel furniture of modern homes.

Rather than focusing on plush, over-sized furniture, individuals may want to focus on tasteful pieces with distinctive upholstery and throw pillows, which can provide any room with a splash of color.

Lighting is also important to distinguish the dimensions of the room. To add a little personality to the window treatments, try hanging pleated shades. Since these treatments are available in a variety of colors, they can provide notable points to any area and, since they fold into pleats, these shades can allow the maximum amount of light into a room, so the modern furniture can shine in the sunlight.
