This month's inspiration is taken from a contemporary home in the city. We love it for the way its neutral tones and use of natural light open up the space, while the splashes of color add personality and energy.

An open floor plan is great for entertaining guests and having family activities centered in one main location.
Add an interesting object or painting to a space, as the room's "conversation piece".
A tall upholstered headboard creates a sense of height and luxury, while white linens and "floating" pendants provide a sense of lightness.
Mixing different textures is a great way to add visual interest.
