Contemporary style derives from a wide range of influences including Scandinavian, Industrial and Coastal aesthetics. A contemporary home refrains from unnecessary embellishment and rather is defined by a sense of openness, clean lines, high ceilings and modern architecture, which celebrates innovative design. A refined and minimalistic approach is often required when styling a contemporary property and the interiors are particularly well suited to large-scale structural furniture, striking artwork and statement accessories. Colour schemes focus on sophisticated neutrals that can be paired with bold pops of colour, a monochromatic palette or a tone on tone scheme. Accessories may include subtly textured fabrics, with statement accents and an emphasis on layering soft furnishings, to create a warm and inviting space.
