take a look at this first room. it's gorgeous and bold with it's red walls and white fixtrures. but the thing that really makes this room pop is the big chandelier.
now look at this room, with it's clean walls and floor. what catches the eye here? the use of color here is that makes this room dramatic and different.
think about the first room again. if we inverted the colors, meaning everywhere there is red would be white and everywhere there is white would be red, think of how much more bold this room would be.
