A trend that’s really making an impact is interesting ceiling treatments. Coffer ceilings combined with recessed lighting can make a bold statement, especially if you use wood beams that show off how wonderfully unique each one is grained. A drop ceiling can perfectly accent a high ceiling. Lighter colored ceilings with detailed molding can make a small room appear roomier.

One trend to look out for is high contrast in any given room. It involves mixing new world décor with old world elements. Rooms with modern, contemporary décor can add contrast with a vintage, antique or Victorian piece. The same is true for a Victorian room. Simply add some contemporary pieces to mix things up. Patterned wall paper and even prints can make a room pop as well.
