The look balances both masculine and feminine attributes for a comfortably contemporary design.
A minimalist approach is taken with carefully selected accessories — a potted orchid gracefully arching by a window, white mats that set off photographs in simple black and silver frames, an oval wooden tray that provides a resting spot for similarly shaped silver candleholders. This kind of grouping provides a counterpoint to the furniture. The transitional palette relies on a lack of color to evoke a serene atmosphere. Dark brown can add depth to a neutral balance of taupe, tan or vanilla.
