This neutral room is the kind of place we could curl up and fall right to sleep in. The tones are so soothing. We love how this designer chose to draw the eye away from all those neutrals with a punch of dark wood. The contrast between the curtain rods and the curtains shows them both off.
When designing a room, it's easy to get caught up in the idea that everything has to match. Using different tones and textures, though, is often what gives the room its appeal. The brushed nickel knobs in this dining area are a nice contrast to the dark curtain rod, floor and light fixture. While a light curtain rod on the light wall would have worked here, the effect of this rod is that it carries a hint of the deep colors in the adjoining room over, creating a cohesive look.
This well-proportioned den is the perfect size for a cozy gathering area. Custom lighting and light colors give the room an airy feeling, while richer, warmer tones make it feel intimate. Bamboo shades have become a design staple, and a dark curtain rod in a similar tone helps blend with the curtains, creating a warm, aesthetically pleasing backdrop.
