Rust built-ins provide a warm welcome to visitors in this entryway and library. Surrounded by pristine white walls, the color combination leans more toward eclectic than modern with the introduction of rich antique furniture. Next: More guides to color in home design

Have you ever heard of a girandole? It’s kind of like a chandelier designed to sit on a table, and it came into use in the middle of the 19th century. Many are still available with candles, but they also come with electric lights. I’ve never owned a girandole but have always wanted one. They are beautiful at night on a side table or even a dining table when used with candles or very dim electric bulbs. As you can see here, where the girandole has been mixed very creatively with Asian furniture, they are really the world’s most elegant candlestick. Their prismatic crystals reflect light in a unique way, really establishing a romantic ambience. If you’ve ever seen the movie The Scarlet Pimpernel, you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Or use it in small amounts, for niches, nooks and built-in cabinetry. The less you use of it, the more versatile the color will be. By that I mean you can more easily work in other hues you love without going overboard on color. And small amounts of color are much easier to change in the future should you desire a different look.
