Contemporary interior design is becoming increasingly popular. This style is characterised by its subtle sophistication, deliberate use of texture and clean lines. Contemporary interiors focus on colour, space, and shapes to create a sleek and fresh look.

Neutral colours, greys, blacks, and white are the signature of contemporary design. Bright and bold accessories can accentuate this colour palette. Clean lines are the most distinctive element of contemporary style, which is seen in the straight, vertical, horizontal, or curved lines of architectural details.

Contemporary design emphasises the use of bold colours, high ceilings, minimalist window dressings, and geometric shapes in light fittings, artwork, sculptures, and furniture pieces. Structural elements such as brickwork and exposed metal pipes can provide texture and stability while adding a stylish industrial feel.

Furniture in contemporary interiors makes a bold statement but is simple and uncluttered. Chair legs are often exposed, and upholstery is black, white, or other neutral tones using natural materials like wool, cotton, linen, silk, or jute for texture. A variety of shaped cushions inject interest, colour, and texture.

Contemporary floors are usually bare and smooth, in wood, tile or concrete. Carpet or rugs can add colour or texture. Generous use of metal, stone,and glass works well in contemporary decor, while large plants and flowers add more drama, colour, shape, and texture.
