High Contrast Elements is a favorite of mine, probably because I like soothing color schemes and a splash of dark wood and blacks will give a room the drama it deserves. It can also ground the space. One example of high contrast and dark architectural elements is the use of black or almost black windows. Steel windows are the most stylish but also most expensive option, where fiberglass or aluminum-clad windows offer a high quality alternative to steel.
