High Contrast

Dark meets light and shiny meets matte in this playful, glamorous, energetic trend. When opposites attract (think: velvet and leather), they create a symphony of bold colors and texture.

High-contrast design means balancing seriousness with not taking things too seriously. This space plays with scale, color, and pattern in all the right ways—with a consciously curated mix of elements that secretly follows a set of principles but also breaks them a bit. The result: A whimsical, eclectic, and overall high-impact vibe that’s equally super-chic and deliciously tailored.
