Exploring Contemporary Style


A peaceful and serene contemporary design style incorporates architectural aspects, decorative accents, attention to scale, and a limited color palette to produce a cozy yet effortlessly sophisticated home. A properly balanced contemporary style home must have simplicity, clean lines, textural plays, and subtle drama.

Here is a quick list of the architectural features you should emphasize to effortlessly incorporate contemporary interior design into a house:

  • Keep the flooring simple for a modern living room by choosing a traditional wooden floor, plain-pattern rugs, and geometric-shaped low-pile carpets.
  • Simple but effective source lighting for highlighting work areas, art, and architectural details.
  • A combination of opaque or clear glass, stone, and metal.
  • Use details like molding, window treatments, and pops of color to give an otherwise plain room more personality.
