What Is Contemporary Home And 39 Cool Ideas
Contemporary style is perhaps one of the most popular styles today but to be precise, that’s not a style, this is a pack of features that are considered actual and up-to-date right now. Today’s contemporary style is defined by curved lines, neutral colors and minimalism, but it may look slightly different in the future as it changes with time – it means ‘of this moment’. Let’s find out more about current contemporary features and ways to incorporate this style into your home interiors.
Neutral shades are the cornerstone of contemporary style. If you’re aiming to pay homage to this style, blacks, whites, tans and grays should make up the bulk of your design. Occasionally, bold solids may also be used, but if so, they are typically used sparingly and only as accents. If you stick to mixing neutrals, it’s a good idea to include lots of texture in your design. A variety of textures will help add visual interest into the space, besides textures are currently a hot trend in home decor and they will give a lot of interest to it.

Forms or shapes is one of the foundational elements of contemporary design. It’s one of the elements that sets this design style apart from other, similar aesthetics like modern design. The most popular idea here is curved shapes that also happen to be one of the hottest home decor trends. You may also try a mixture of both straight and elegantly curved lines, which can be seen as a slight nod to this style’s art deco roots. Ideally, you should incorporate these eye-catching lines in a variety of ways throughout the design, it’s not only about furniture or artworks. If you’re working on a remodel, consider adding an eye-catching architectural element like a shapely fireplace or room divider. If not, make an effort to include some curved furniture, lighting or décor elements, and that will be enough.
The final key to creating a contemporary design is layering plenty of lighting throughout the room, paying special attention to natural light. Make as many and as large windows are you can, this is the main point. Then incorporate all types of layered light you can: ambient, accent, task, everything you can and you need, as a contemporary space should be full of light.
