Many people find interior design daunting, but it really doesn’t have to be. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, Florida, we have some tips on how to achieve a contemporary design style in your home. You’ll see how easy it is! Read on to learn more.
Contemporary Design Style in the Home
Although the terms are synonymous, contemporary and modern design styles are not the same. Contemporary design is for people who like to work with trending pieces and styles. Modern, however, is rooted in the 1900s. Contemporary style offers more softening: rounded, clean lines and a base of neutral colors surround notes of simplicity and sophistication, with updated materials and on-trend shapes and textures. To bring your home into contemporary style, here are some easy tips:
- Less is more. Contemporary design is about uncluttered spaces. Pare down your décor by keeping only the pieces you really love. After that, you’ll see that the space will feel updated and fresh.
- Make neutral colors your base. Use beige, gray, white, cream, or even black. With a neutral base, you can add pops of color in your accessories, artwork, or window fashions.
- Bring on some texture. Texture can come through metal, stone, glass, or textiles such as silk, wool, linen, or cotton. You can add accent pillows or rugs to add texture, or even go with wall designs in geometric patterns. And don’t forget your window treatments. Consider Provenance® Woven Woods, which are made from natural reeds, woods, grass, and bamboo, to add nature to the room.
- Tend to your lighting. Light and shadow combine to add depth and create visual interest. You’ll want to have light from different angles—from above as well as from below—to create the right lines in the room. Incorporate natural light as well, by getting the right window treatment to control the light the way you want.
