Light it up with neon. A room saturated in charcoal – from the walls to the paintwork – makes a gorgeous backdrop for neon colors. This electric‐pink table, along with the bright yellow artwork, pops and helps to define the room, which could have been a bit of a black hole without such an energizing color. A couple of pieces are enough, though, so the dramatic effect of the charcoal isn't lost.
Mirrors. Here's a look I recently enjoyed while visiting the Shangri‐La Hotel in Vancouver: mirrors layered over bathroom windows. It creates a resort feel but is practical and can be re‐created at home. Hanging a mirror in the window (either on a picture wire or by fixed metal supports) fills in the window enough to create a sense of privacy while still allowing light to filter in. For more privacy simply cover the exposed glass with translucent film.
Mix in some monochrome. This dark hall dances on the edge of overwhelming, but the monochromatic geometric pattern, white marble and gleaming gold cupboard handles have turned the potentially dark tunnel into an enchanting corridor.
