Slide Into The Sleek Bold Look Of Contemporary Design

If you've always had an affinity for up-to-the minute, cutting-edge design, contemporary decorating may be the best way for you to translate your aesthetic preferences into a home environment that reflects your taste. Contemporary decor draws upon the sleek lines and bold statements that were originated in the mid-twentieth century by the luminaries of modern design. Although many people associate contemporary decor with an avant-garde, almost futuristic look, this is but one point along a broad spectrum of styles that are referred to as contemporary, and most people find that a stylized, ultramodern approach to decor is incompatible with the day-to-day life of a family. As such, many current interpretations of contemporary decor combine elements of other styles, such as traditional, modern, transitional, and ethnic decor, with the streamlined silhouettes that characterize contemporary design, resulting in a warmer, personal, and more inviting take on this style.

Sleek, low-lying furniture with straight lines or subtle curves is the centerpiece of contemporary style. There is also an emphasis on highlighting unique pieces of designer, antique or vintage furniture, art, or accents by contrasting them with more understated pieces. Similarly, the prevailing color schemes for contemporary decor usually involve a neutral or monotone palette, paired with bright or bold splashes of accent color. Metallic elements are also a popular choice in this style. Window treatments are often sleek and unfussy with natural inspirations, such as wood or bamboo blinds. One of the primary goals of contemporary decor is using a sleek, minimalist backdrop to highlight unique or unusual components.

Elements such as texture are used to bring depth and dimension to otherwise neutral arrangements. This aim is manifested in the recent popularity of textured fabrics, dimensional rugs, and frisee carpets. All of these items can be used to pair an unusual or unexpected texture with an understated color scheme, balancing neutral minimalism with boldly exclamatory features or accessories. This interesting juxtaposition of timeless elegance and forward-thinking innovation is the epitome of contemporary decor. Here are a few key things to remember when decorating in a contemporary style: *Organic elements such as stone, wood and metal can help perfect the contemporary look.

*Use color sparingly. A vibrantly colored accent may be all that you need. Stick mainly to a monochromatic palette. *Keep your rooms spacious.

Furniture should be kept to a minimum. *Contemporary furniture such as low tables and beds are a standard contemporary element. *Along with your organic elements, use textured hammered metal or rough surface slate or tile to round out the decor.
