Ambient lighting can be accomplished be placing small halogen bulbs at the back of the painting or decoration pieces housed in their cabinet sections. The textures chosen for this should be as follows. The wall should be painted with a very smooth finish emulsion, wallpapers should be avoided here, and the decoration pieces with their shelves should be dull and matted. They should not be shinny and glittery. Basically their security level should be kept in check.
Or, use the rich warm color palette that is so common in traditional decorating styles, such as burgundy, gold and deep green, combined with modern touches such as stylized metal wall art. Hang traditional oil paintings in sleek metal frames to seamlessly combine the two decorating styles. Preserve the beauty of your city skyline view by using window toppers in rich shades. Art Deco pieces are also quite useful for combining traditional and modern decorating styles. By combining traditional and contemporary styles, you can create a comfortable and attractive eclectic look that will be uniquely your own.
