How to Get a Contemporary Look
Think sleek, smooth, fresh lines and solid colours, mainly subdued neutrals or daring hits of colour in furniture and accessories. Furniture can be sleek, low to the floor and frequently has straight legs or metal frames stressing basic forms and shapes. Graphic elements in wall art and other decor or as accents work great with this look.
This living room is balanced, lively and yet stylish. The black lines give a stable framework and foundation for this happy scheme. White and muted taupe-grey and blue-grey keeps it fresh and grounded. The touch of mustard gold is totally unexpected with the bright living coral orange (Pantone colour of the year 2019), but here it adds interest, earthiness, sophistication and maturity. It goes well with the blue-grey.
The splashes (take note splashes only; used in moderation) of coral orange is vibrant and will keep you awake even during a dull, boring conversation! I feel like I’m on a caffeine high just staring at it 🙂 and I love it!
Placement of furniture and accessories is important to ensure that
The addition of decorating items and accessories and the amounts of accent colours should be adjusted according to the size, shape and building style a living space allows.
Don’t be afraid to use bold or bright colours, just remember the amount and application is key.
