Everyone wants a nice home with an interior design that you can be comfortable with. Contemporary luxury design keeps us both comfortable and gives us a lot of room.
Wide open spaces, simple furniture designs with straight lines, all of this being comfortable at the same time, is what the modern look is about.
If you want your home to be the envy of everyone on your block, just follow these simple rules. If you have a small living room, then use a smaller number of smaller pieces of furniture to make it seem like there is more space. Also leave open spaces on your walls to create the optical illusion of space.
If you have a large room, then try to use functional pieces of furniture while keeping the space and lines of the room flowing.
Colors of course are a personal preference. Everyone likes different colors.
Keep in mind though that colors have been related to mood and feeling in several studies.
Light earthy colors will make the room’s inhabitants feel more relaxed and at peace.
Pastels will make the inhabitants feel happier while bright colors enhance the feeling of anxiety.
Make sure that you keep your colors in line with your furniture. Do not forget that your electronics have colors too. Try to keep everything uniformly color coordinated and in its place. Color coordination also helps with keeping the peace and harmony in your house.
You have seen contrasts. Surely you have seen a room done in strict black and white. Now think about a time when you have been in a room with coordinated soft, earth tone colors.
Think back to what you were inherently feeling while you were in those rooms. The black and white, while having such a stunning contrast probably had you feeling a bit on edge. The earth tones on the other hand more than likely had you feeling at ease and relaxed.
Clutter makes a room look smaller too. Remember there is a place for everything and everything should be in its place. You will find that once you get things in their place if you keep them picked up as you go, even your house cleaning will become easier.
Keep all of these things in mind when decorating your home and you will enjoy a peaceful, well designed, uncluttered, contemporary house to come home to in the evenings.
