contemporary living room style comes from Spiegel.com. The clean white couch is contrasted by the sleek black, iron
and glass coffee table
and glass accents like the fish bowl and
black and white prints. The frosted lampshades give off a warm glow
without fussiness as they blend seamlessly with the rest of the
Simplicity is the key and accessories are kept to a minimum in
a sleek contemporary style room. The only real dash of color comes
from the funky accent rug. However, this room doesn't appear cold
and stark and it's because of the comfortable, inviting furniture.
The quirkiness of the rug and fishbowl add a sense of whimsy and
detract from the staunchness that black and white color schemes
can often allude to.
This contemporary style isn't for everyone, but is easily expandable
with the use of colorful colorful throw pillows with rich textures. Change
out the lampshades to bring in a new feel. Mat the black and white
prints and add a vase of flowers to your coffee table for more texture,
color and even smell.
When you have a good neutral base, it's easy to mix and match and
change your room decor.
