Contemporary interior design is the opposite of classic — it is bold and trendy and emphasizes popular design. In contemporary homes, shapes and textures take the spotlight. Natural materials, such as linen and jute, are often paired with curvy, geometric furniture and mix-and-match metal and wood. Unlike stark modern or elegant traditional spaces, a contemporary house is not afraid of color; bright, contrasting hues and stark black and white are both often found in this interior design style. Chevron patterns, chalkboard paint and plastic furniture might be popular today, but contemporary decorating ideas always evolve to stay on top of what’s new. When it comes to contemporary architecture, dramatic details and shapes are must-have components, while indoor-outdoor living, open floor plans and natural light are also key.
