Color is cool but beware the trendy hue. Today's on‐trend shade is tomorrow's fashion fail so choose wisely. Classic colors such as the primaries (red yellow and blue) usually have staying power mainly because they are so unapologetically basic. Red is a very popular color especially in homes that have a subtle Asian theme as red is a color traditionally associated with celebration and this will work even if the home is minimalist and modern.

Focus on accessories. If black walls are a step too far why not add some contrast with black accessories? This boudoir has dark blinds a thick black picture frame and an ebony vanity table creating a darkly luxurious spot. The key here is the glossy surfaces which catch the light rather than absorbing it.

Oversize art. If you have a large expanse of brick to cover – a fireplace that reaches all the way to a high ceiling for instance – artwork is a great way to break it up. As long as your brick is not a really bright red most artwork should work with it. If you are unsure try bringing a clear photograph of your fireplace with you when you're looking for art and check if you can bring the piece home on a trial basis before committing to buy it.

Matching striped upholstery and solid pillows. Have your armchairs covered in identical striped fabric as the sofa and finish the look off with a cluster of solid‐hued pillows.

Clean lines. Floating shelves are one thing but floating cabinets add an unexpected element to a minimalist living area like this one. Hide any clutter in the cabinets and show off only the most beautiful objects.

Pick your paint colors next to the other materials including pulling back a section of the protective floor covering to get a good sense of how the colors work with the new stain color.

Picking bar stools and tables and chairs for an eat‐in kitchen usually comes at the end but this is also important so don't just mail it in at this point. Think about adding patina and texture through vintage pieces if you can find them. And don't forget about items like decorative plate racks artwork and area rugs or runners. Small touches like this can add much character to a newly remodeled kitchen.
