What is Contemporary Design?
Contemporary design includes styling that is up-to-date and current. It is sleek, casual, and inviting, and often light and airy. Think clean lines with a softened edge and little or no ornamentation. Contemporary design is always changing based on what is currently in vogue. It often includes a neutral palette with pops of color used in accents and large scale artwork.
This week I'm highlighting some of my favorite new contemporary pieces with suggestions for creating a contemporary style in your home. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and more information.
Add Large Pieces of Artwork with Pops of Color
This striking abstract hand painted artwork on canvas would be right at home in a contemporary setting. The large size would make a beautiful backdrop for above a sofa, a buffet, or an entry console cabinet. This piece would definitely add a pop of color. Each piece is hand painted, so there will be slight variations, making it a real work of art.
