Sleek Contemporary

By H. Iacobacci-Miller
 

This 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 décor.

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.
