To create a feeling of spaciousness, the contemporary design style usually adopts an open floor plan concept. The dining room and the kitchen frequently share a single spacious area, and by positioning a kitchen island (that can also serve as a service bar) and a dining table diagonally from it, you get to enjoy a simultaneously airy and comfortable living space.

Contemporary means living in the moment, therefore enjoying an open space while having a great time in a chic atmosphere goes hand-in-hand with the overarching design. Christina Karis beautifully combined white countertops on the kitchen & kitchen island so everyone gets the most of the clean aesthetics associated with these materials. Additionally, these tops further reflect natural light and pair well with the neutral light grey palette used on the walls.

Contrasting elements placed within the neutral palette of an area are commonly associated with sophistication, nonetheless by bringing organic fabrics in furred chairs, including glass & stainless-steel tables in a living room you can produce warmth from what could otherwise strike as a cold, “careful not to touch” space. The eclectic approach in which this space was designed allows a combination of cased plants, metallic sculptures, and ceramic garments in aesthetic harmony. During the day this area evokes freshness and sophistication, while at night glamour prevails.

Master bedrooms are one of the most intimate spaces in any house, as such it’s critical to go for clean and straight lines for nightstands, furniture, and decorative elements. Tonal textures in bedding, rugs, and pillows can deliver that extra warmth without projecting clutter and disparity. Contemporary bedrooms provide joy when that mix of high-shine and cozy décor happens, by escaping the typical organic approach you also get to enjoy a rather orderly and original personal space, ready to be tweaked with personal effects of your choosing.

Contemporary interior designs tend to avoid gender-oriented decorations by favoring simple, minimalist decoration. Nonetheless, because it provides such a neutral looking atmosphere, there’s always room for any personal touches and colorful details to be had (as long as it’s not too ornate or baroque, you’ll get a beautiful look). For instance, notice how the curvy furniture and some magenta/purple flowers and vases defeat any emptiness or lack of originality in front of the bed.
