Contemporary style is based on the concept of the present, the here and now. This style is neither warm and fuzzy nor cold and harsh; it simply is. Clutter is nonexistent in a contemporary space, while the design elements of neutral, clean, smooth, and subtle reign supreme.
Keep theme, colour schemes and material finishes consistent throughout the home, especially when it comes to lighting. Too many different styles in a sordid array throughout the home can be confusing on the eye and will cause uneasiness. Neutral, lighter tones will open up a space and make it appear larger, statement pops of colour (e.g. through lampshades) will add interest, while darker hues add a touch of luxury and cosiness. Keep it simple and consistent.
How about adding decorative beams to a ceiling to draw the eye upward? You may even opt for the look of a coffered ceiling, with beams creating a waffle-like pattern. Although coffers are usually square, you may wish to consider other regular geometric shapes. Special coffers are available that improve the acoustics in a room with a high ceiling. For a low ceiling, you can create a modified-coffered look by using flat boards instead of beams.
Top off interior windows with a pediment above a window surround. The window casings or surrounds serve to frame your lovely outdoor views, while adding a look of durability. They can be as simple or detailed as you wish. You'll appreciate the character they bring to your windows.
