Contemporary Design Style is often defined by clean lines with a casual atmosphere, open spaces, neutral colors and elements and materials inspired by nature. While modern interiors have been considered cold and minimalist, today’s contemporary interiors are comfortable and welcoming without being cluttered or dark. This style can be used in homes, apartments, stores and offices.

Contemporary homes many times have an unusually shaped frame, an open floor plan, over-sized windows, and use re-purposed components. The use of natural light also plays a big role, so large and expansive windows are a common feature of such homes and the design tends to fit into the surrounding landscape. The elements that characterized modern architecture were thought to be too cold and impersonal by many. The contemporary style, as is recognized today, was developed due to this opinion. Much like the modern style, contemporary style connects indoor and outdoor spaces, but it adds some personal touches and warmth throughout the living space. Although people sometimes use the terms “contemporary” and “modern” architecture interchangeably, they technically are not synonymous. Modern architecture refers to the building style of the early to mid-20th century and featured clean lines with an emphasis on function.
