For a streamlined, "less is more" home, a contemporary style is the way to go. Characterized by clean lines and a minimalist look, a contemporary home feels modern, fresh, and functional — while still feeling warm and welcoming. Neutral colors and black and white are used in abundance as the backdrop for contemporary rooms. With a toned-down background, shapes and textures take the spotlight. Natural textiles such as linen and jute provide a welcome contrast to the simple geometric lines that make up a contemporary space. Architectural elements aim to connect the indoor and outdoor. Expansive windows, open floor plans, and lots of natural light are key characteristics of contemporary home design.
