USE OF NATURAL MATERIALS CAN PRODUCE A BEAUTIFULLY INTERIOR & EXTERIOR:
Instead of natural materials being reserved to just wood furniture your contemporary home can make use of natural and organic materials in decking outside, leather furniture for your interiors and simple decorative elements displayed throughout your home.
The contemporary period of living brought about a new sense of using organic materials such as wood, rock, slate, teak, cotton, wool, and other gorgeous textiles in modern furnishings and not just reserved to traditional home uses.
Furniture designers started to create sofas, tables, and home furnishings that reflected a more relaxed approach to living. Stuffy and heavy ornamentation was replaced with clean rectilinear lines and this gave way to contemporary homes feeling lighter in weight and more casual in livability. Furniture was raised off the floor to give a weightlessness appeal and your home can adopt these same qualities.
STREAM-LINED CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURAL EXTERIOR DETAILS:
While the focus on interiors is often thought of when considering contemporary influences, don't forget the architectural exterior details that are just as important. Most exterior detailing is free from heavy ornamentation of historic classical buildings and is replaced with simple rectilinear or curvilinear forms.
Rooflines are distinct - cantilever or large overhangs, and unique features such as seemingly flat rooflines as well as materials of the exterior usually blend harmoniously with nature around your home in contemporary styles. Using creative window design in your home can add instant contemporary appeal.
ATTENTION TO CONTEMPORARY DETAILS IN YOUR HOME:
Similarly to design periods of the past, detailing is essential in a contemporary home. Fine elements such as lighting fixtures that are distinct and look like works of fine art are kept simple and distinct. Hand railings and banisters that were once large handcrafted pieces of wood in past design decades are replaced with innovative tension cables, glass, or industrial materials. Look to adding contemporary details that get noticed, yet don't distract your minimal interiors.
TECHNOLOGY BECOMES HIDDEN BEHIND YOUR GORGEOUS INTERIORS:
One of the areas of contemporary design that everyone loves are the "hidden details". You see the innovative technology in our smart worlds of technology for phones, computers, and also in our homes.
Contemporary details of wireless and remote access controls for controlling electronics, heating/cooling systems, lighting, security and more are all hidden behind the beautiful details.
Try bringing innovative controls into your home lifestyle and see how much your contemporary home will feel. Technology has become the hidden luxury details to add to contemporary homes.
RELEASE YOUR 'OLD WORLD' THINKING IN OUR CONTEMPORARY AGE:
There is no doubt that every design age borrows and influences elements from each other. The contemporary era of design is more about letting go of strict and formal design rules and becoming more open and minimalistic in approach. Whether you decide to have a more eclectic home and mix and match past eras or you'd prefer to become ultra-modern in nature, your home should reflect your lifestyle. Release your old world thinking that every piece in your home has to have a label and enjoy contemporary living that is reflected throughout your gorgeous home.
