I’ve always thought of myself as a traditional gal in regard to home décor. However, as time goes by I find myself drawn to the clean lines and minimalist vibe of modern design. So, what’s a girl to do? Maybe it’s time to look into Contemporary Home Decor. Before you jump in and start buying accessories and furnishings, here are some characteristics of contemporary décor to get you moving in the right direction. Contemporary spaces are a happy combination of sleek modernism and classic traditional design elements. No clinically stark interiors, no overly decorated spaces. The feel is sophisticated, light and airy, warm and inviting, and spot on with the latest design trends.
Contemporary interiors feature the best of styles from the latter half of the 20th century through today. The focus is on soft lines, neutral backgrounds, shots of bold color, natural textures and open spaces. You will find it easy to incorporate contemporary accessories and décor in your home, provided you don’t live in a gingerbread Victorian packed to the rafters with antiques. Some design styles were simply not meant to commingle!
