Contemporary home decorating as a stylistic theme is one that focuses on presentation of space, rather than possessions. It’s an emphasis on color contrasts, and schemes that bring out simple lines. In some ways, it’s not unlike Zen decorating, but with a bit less of the Spartan simplicity.
While most other contemporary decorating schemes are all about color coordination – using dark and light shades to bring out a theme, contemporary interior decorating uses contrasts to much the same effect – using a dark floor and neutral walls as the backdrop for brightly colored furniture, or using neutral furniture against peach or cream walls to let the eye find other decorating elements around the room.
Window accents should be functional and neutral in color rather than drapes or heavily patterned brocades to carry off the contemporary style. Lighting should be directable, and the fixtures should emphasize the clean lines of the other elements of the décor chosen. Contemporary floor lamps come in a bewildering array of options – it’s worth it to take your digital photos of the intended design space with you when hunting for lamps.
