Contemporary Design For Your Home

Most people associate the word “contemporary” with “modern”. While this may be true in some aspects, in terms of design contemporary and modern are quite different. According to ““contemporary” architecture and style is, literally, what is being created and produced right now. It is dynamic, meaning it’s constantly changing. It can be quite eclectic for this reason – contemporary style isn’t tied down to one specific style – it’s of the moment and borrows bits and pieces from a variety of styles and eras.” Where modern “is connected to the age of machination and is typically referred to of that of the 1920s-1950s.”

Here are some great tips to get the contemporary look in your home:

1. Light & Dark

One great way to get a contemporary look in your home is with juxtaposing light and dark. Many assume that putting dark floors in a room will make the home feel dark and cave-like, but from the picture above you can see that by mixing the dark floors with lighter cabinets and walls you can really open up a room.

2. Clean Slate

While contemporary decor seems to be mostly neutral color schemes, colorful paint and fun accessories are great ways to “keep in stride with the times” without making a major commitment to one style or color. To keep the style from looking to childish, a great idea is to do a neutral floor against your colorful walls.

3. Shabby Chic

A fun way to mix up contemporary design is to add some “shabby chic” elements to it. One example is with a farmhouse-look laminate. This laminate by Armstrong adds character to the room while the furniture and neutral paint scheme create an overall contemporary look.
