It may be the contrast achieved by a note of colour or the unexpected texture on a surface, the important thing is not to underestimate the power of a different element in our decoration.
In this marvellous Nordic kitchen, you have several examples of how to attract attention or change the point of interest in a very simple way, one of them is that plant with fuchsia leaves placed on the windowsill, inadvertently, at the first stroke of view of the room our eyes go to her.
Due to the way some photos of the kitchen are taken, at an angle and showing the full length of it, the view inevitably goes to the window, but it is the plant of that striking colour that keeps us there. That is thanks to the colour being so different from the rest, it is unexpected and breaks the common thread.
As in this case, it is a plant with small leaves, it is effective, balanced and at the same time discreet, imagine if it were a plant with large leaves, it would give us a different sensation.
Another example of how in the kitchen the style and the decorative common thread are subtly changed and combined is the use of the lamp and the black chairs, again, the contrast, despite being black on white and wood, is moderate, since they are light pieces.
The coating of the kitchen between the countertop and the upper furniture would be another small detail that can completely change the decoration of this kitchen, if it were all white, everything would go unnoticed, but that mosaic of tesserae keeps us there, makes us focus on that part.
