The arched in-wall shelving is the perfect match to the dark wood floors. This brings the dark wood up to the top half of the room creating balance against the white walls. The green dishes adds a bit of light color to create contrast within the shelving. The brown, green, and white combo gives a very natural look to this home.
Black and Brown

Pop of Red

The brown flooring with grey undertones in this bathroom isn't very dark but it does create contrast against the light-colored walls and will help give the space more dimension.
