There is something wonderful about using contrasting styles. For instance, if you love the simplicity of modern design but would like to incorporate some traditional elements, a transitional design works best. Here, you can see how well the straight lines and the minimalistic structure of the sofas blend in with the rustic and distressed brick wall. While a brick wall in red may have been too traditional, using a white wall has given it that modern edge. The blue accent wall, the rustic wood panel for the tv and the lounge swing all make this space super comfortable and relaxing.
