Contemporary style of decorating is constantly evolving and connects with the growing styles and modern things. It’s a wrong assumption many make that contemporary interior design is all about achieving cold and ultra minimalist look. Contemporary designs create an environment of comfort, simplicity, subtly sophisticated and welcoming without being cluttered and dark. It’s equally appropriate for work place, stores and home as it showcases the beauty of space rather than things, clean lines and uncomplicated clarity.
Trying to achieve contemporary interior designs, it’s important to stick to some basic rules which focus on colour, space, style, neutrals and geometric shapes. Contemporary interiors are sleek and fresh.
Use of colour
When we talk about contemporary interior design the main colours we concentrate are neutrals, black and white. If the walls are of neutral colour then the accessories can be bright or can make use of antic pieces and vice versa works well to. Black defines the contemporary style room and palette is often punched up and accented with bright and bold colour. For classy contemporary look you can go for crisp white and grey with metallic finish.
Line and space
As we already spoke the important focus is space and design in line. Replace the empty walls with few hangings which would go with the wall colour, make sure they not to crowded and keep enough spacing. To draw attention the structural elements can either be painted bold with contrasting colours or diminish importance by blending them with walls.
Let it light
We all know that lighting plays a key role. This is actually the final step and should pay attention to natural lights. Use plenty of lightings throughout the room so that it doesn’t look to dark. Windowed walls are necessary to bring in lots of natural light and air. Making use of spotlights and enhancing the painting, poster or painting can draw eyes.
Art works and Accessories
When you have enough space or a particular place looks to empty, you can just add on accessories. You can probably go with art works such as wooden carvings or metallic finishes. At the same time do not crowd a single place with many, probably just one or two would do well. In case you got many frames, you can hang them close together so they give the feeling of one large piece instead of many small pieces.
