Contemporary design

09 Nov 2017
Contemporary design tries to imitate modern design, in the sense that it applies open floor plans, excessive windowing and high ceilings. However, contemporary interior design pays more attention to natural materials, unlike modernistic steel, plastic or concrete. It also applies softer and curved lining.

The color spectrum of contemporary design is also broader-its methods depart from the black and white trend and try consciously to implement bold patchwork in the home. Contemporary decor also makes use of a broader color palette, departing from the black and white tendencies of modern design.

Contemporary design has the casual habit of incorporating whimsicality to our space, by adding extraordinary furniture pieces. The rationale is to make your living space more individual and to implement a ‘personal stamp’ that will indicate attributes of the person responsible for that decoration.

These are the basics of contemporary design:

  • Appropriate colors—contemporary style employs neutral tones, such as white, cream, beige, brown or gray. The accent can be put also on bold color schemes, as long as they comply with the already established balance.
  • Appropriate furniture—contemporary design cherishes polished surfaces, light colors and natural materials (wood, glass, nickel, chrome and stainless steel). When it comes to fabrics, the preferred ones are natural goods (cotton, linen, wool, and silk), which can be neutral, bold-colored or modestly patterned.
  • Neutral walls—in this aspect, contemporary design complies with its modern ally. The walls are supposed to be neutrally-colored, but slightly bolder colors are also welcome. Subdominant striped wallpapers are also a good idea.
  • Floors—in order for a house to be described as contemporary, its floors need to be wooden. Cement, laminate or stone flooring can be an excellent substitute. Full carpeting and occasional rugs are also welcomed, as long as they are neutrally-colored or patterned in a very simple way.
  • Specific windowing—the same as modern designers, contemporary designers recommend large windows without covers (or a single-colored curtain to ensure your privacy).
A general comparison between modern and contemporary interior design characteristics points out that contemporary elements are more liberal and susceptible to recent trends. A contemporary environment is an ‘unfinished’ one-it follows the improvement of your style and your personality. Contemporary style is always evolving, so that it could adapt to the parallel modifications in your tastes, attitudes and habits.

With contemporary being such an ‘open-minded’ style, you can enjoy constant innovation with colors and shapes. Contemporary design will comply with all of your new ornaments and decorations. Modern style, on the other hand, will not allow you to do this.
