When you like “less is more,” then contemporary decorations are your choice. Contemporary homes are homes that have a few large items and are very spacious. The collectibles are very limited. The whole place has dramatic accents of neutral color in backgrounds or white or black shades. The whole theme and look are basic and simple in design and décor. The furniture will have clean lines and a simple design. The mirrors, metal finishes, and artwork are important accents.
When it comes to the contemporary living room, it has to be spacious as well as comfortable. Here is how you can design your contemporary living room and its décor:
Remove Clutter: Removal of clutter is very important to make the place feel spacious and comfortable. Before decorating the contemporary living room, it is important to remove all the extras. Select a few important collectibles and remove the rest. Avoid small objects. Even on the couch, don’t make a shop of pillows. Rather, keep one or two only on the couch. If you need a coffee table, then only keep it else; dispose of it off as it attracts clutter.
Clear Off Walls: in this, you can start by taking down collages or multiple small pictures and rather replace all with one large item on the wall. Not on all walls; there has to be something; keep some walls clear. The architecture of the room is part of the décor in the contemporary living room décor.
Choose artwork that is contemporary such as primary colors and an unusual mixture of elements such as glass and metal with geometric designs.
Furniture: furniture needs to be simple. Leather is the best choice. Couches can be a white, black, or cream color. Pick furniture which has straight lines; go for dark wood or light color wood but no mixing of tones.
Add accessories that are big and keep with an odd number in the collectibles and display objects.
Lighting: have track lighting, which helps in directing light. Put a dimmer switch to adjust the amount of light. Lamps need to be simple.
