Many tought that Contemporary Design is very similat to Modern Design, while actually both styles have their own characteristic, eventhough it’s true that both styles have many similarities in basic concept. Both Contemporary Design and Modern Design emphasize on simplicity and organize. The difference is in the use of accent and architectural aspects. If Modern Design almost doesn’t have any peticular accent, Contemporary Design use more classic everlasting accent such as carvings on the wall and ceiling. As for architectural aspect, Contemporary Design use many arching lines and curve on the edges.
The use of accent makes Contemporary Design looks more dynamic with better aesthetic. While the use of larger size of glass window with classic frame design will let sunlight to enter and fill the room. Moreover, it can also create a majestic vibe.
In choosing furniture, make sure to choose simple yet artistic furniture. Let say we got rectangular table with glass table top. This kind of table is simple enough and doesn’t take too much space, but it have some artistic aspect in it since it can also serve a decorative purpose. Same as the table, other furniture better has both functionality and aesthetic purpose, such as decorative lamp, sofa rug, credenza, single standing drawer. All of these furniture are functional and serve as decoratives as well.
Contemporary Design has neutral colors. Use 1-2 colors for backgorund, while using few different colors for furniture and fixture, better to use colors that have similar vibe to the backgorund color. Lighter color should ne dominating walls, while darker colors are use for furniture and flooring. Create some contrast, and use the wall as a ‘canvas’ for the furniture to bring out that aesthetic looks.
Neutral elements such as metal, stones, glass and mirror is suitable with Contemporary Design. Since the colors are contrast to each other, neutral element with natural accent will help to balance out everything, so it feel more dynamic and comforting.
Concept wise, Contemporary Design is meant to be artistic. Some art piece, like paintings, statue and some display items can be in it too, but make sure that its not gonna overwhelmed the simplicity of the design. It also good to bring more decorative plants and flowers, real or synthetic, to fill out empty corners.
