Daring a dark paint color: idea for men's living room deco
Light colors dominated modern and contemporary style decoration for much of the 20th and early 21st century. This was especially so for these clear shades associated with neutral tones: the White , gray and beige. These shades were the darling of professional designers and they were generally associated with modern decorations. One of the reasons for the pros' penchant is the fact that these hues provide ideal conditions for a background around which more vivid shades can be added. At the same time, neutral and light tones also have the advantage of making small spaces larger and brighter. This capacity was seen as very useful for modern decorations in newly built apartments, some of which are characterized by their small size.
