Unify Areas Through Color When merging pieces from different design styles, a coat of paint can easily help you unify pieces. Notice how the modern white floating shelves look right at home with the vintage desk. Originally the desk was black, but after a couple of coats of high-gloss paint we have a duo that is not only functional, but also easy on the eyes. Photo courtesy of Camila Pavone.
Love all of this - incorporation desk with some storage, but it's not intrusive. Common wooden pieces across desk and book shelf. A bit of pattern in the rug. Perfect. Like the grey with white trim and the rug and white furniture
