Modern Contemporary Interior Design and Decor Tips

Contemporary, sophisticated and modern are all design styles that minimalists tend to be drawn to. On the surface, a contemporary design looks very simple and clean, but there is much more that goes into this design than just a few pieces of furniture. For some reason, contemporary homes have negative connotations attached to them and are often labeled as cold, unwelcome and boring. For minimalists though, this type of design is seen as interesting and sophisticated. If you’re looking to integrate contemporary elements into your living space, here’s where to start:

1. Furniture

Sleek leather sofas and sectionals are often the choice for a contemporary living room. For example, England Furniture’s Miller Sectional, which is pictured above, is a great choice when trying to achieve that contemporary look.

2. Art

Art
Often, contemporary living rooms are filled with abstract art pieces. Choosing works that have pops of color can add some excitement and personality to the room, making it feel more welcoming. The artwork is often the focal point of the room, so choosing wisely from an artist you admire is important.

3. Color Palette

Color Palette
Contemporary living room designs usually follow a color palette with contrasting light and dark colors. Adding colorful throw pillows and blankets to your sleek leather sofa can be a great way to warm up the room a bit. Even the table accents and rug color can make a big difference. Going with classic black and white is a simple way to achieve this look.

4. Fireplace

Fireplace
Nothing says sophistication more than a lit fireplace does. There are many modern, contemporary fireplace designs that can really tie the feel of the room together. Fireplaces are one of the best ways to make your space feel comfier and cozier.

5. Light Fixtures

Light Fixtures
When trying to achieve a contemporary look, light fixtures can make a big difference. Unique light fixtures and lamps are the finishing touches on a room. The lighting not only helps to set the tone of the room, but intriguing light fixtures can become the topic of conversation within seconds.
