Shapes and colors are the easiest ways to evoke big ideas and feelings. For example, the simple white hexagon tile pattern in this room evokes the sense of 1950s modernity, which has become a timeless style. The combination of dark and light colors, seen in the contrast of the wall and table, continue to flesh out this idea. To complete the room, the soft gray tones on the floor tiles keep the space from seeming too large or unwelcoming — one of the many instances where gray is comforting. In the back is another tile wall using a clay charcoal style to add depth to the hall.
