Contemporary Interior Design Style

The contemporary design style is always changing. It is defined as what is current now, which means what was considered contemporary 10 years ago, is not considered contemporary today.  Contemporary design includes sleek, simple colours.  They are fresh and comfortable instead of cold.  There are many styles that are considered contemporary: clean simple lines, and minimal accessories are just a few. 

To create the framework for your space, use neutral colours.  Use pops of colour in your accessories.  You can also do an accent wall to add a splash of colour to a room.  The contemporary colour palette normally consists of warm shades of neutral colours like white, cream, brown, taupe, etc.

Keep simple furniture that has very little detail to make your room feel sleek and sophisticated.  Make sure you have neutral fabrics on upholstered pieces.  Very light or very dark wood finishes fit best with a contemporary design.  The legs on the furniture should be exposed in order to make the space feel open.

Putting everything together can be the tricky part.  You have to make sure your space is clean and uncluttered.  Don’t have little knick-knacks sitting out. Contemporary design is simple and sleek and your eye should easily travel around the room.
