Often people assume modern interiors are cold and stark but contemporary interiors can be inviting too! What is important to remember is when it comes to modern interiors, the maxim "Less is More" holds true!

  • Simplicity, subtle sophistication and clean lines define the contemporary style of decorating with emphasis on colour and styling.
  • Neutral colours are best suited for contemporary style interiors with perhaps a splash of bright and bold color.
  • While black and white usually defines a modernistic room you can opt for other colours as this palette could get harsh.
  • In contemporary interiors, less is more. Each piece stands out as individual and unique.
  • Furniture should be simple and uncluttered, without curves or decoration. Opt for clean lines in wood or steel while the upholstery could be in a neutral colour to lend balance.
  • Go basic, bare, bold, and structural and experiment with an accent wall in natural textures.
  • Floors can be bare and smooth in wood, tile, or vinyl. If you must use carpet opt for plain or geometric-patterned rugs.
