Color Choices Really Do Make The Difference

Neutral colors are the way to go when it comes to contemporary style. This is because you don’t want to take away attention from the room as a whole, and also because natural lighting puts more emphasis onto the natural light.

Often wide windows are a part of a contemporary living room, that way you can have that be a hallmark of the room.

Neutral colors include black, white, gray, and even some soft beige.  It is possible to use a different color scheme but they need to stay quite muted. Think pale lavender or the softest rose petal blush pink

Accent walls are another good way to bring attention to the room as a whole, usually with a muted floral print or just another complementary color. It depends on what you are trying to say with your contemporary living room ideas.

Lighting In Your Contemporary Living Room

As mentioned earlier lighting is a huge part of the contemporary living room. Yes, natural light is the most popular choice because it lends the best eye to the room. There are other options to light the room than just natural light.

Direct lighting is still not recommended so no need for chandeliers or showy lamps. Instead, try and opt for something a bit more understated. This can be recess lighting, under cabinets or at the edges of the ceiling.

Instead of lighting the room in an obvious manner you should seek to do so in a way that doesn’t draw attention to it. If that can’t be done, try to use a fixture that best fits the overall theme of the room. Dimmers can be used to help keep lighting minimal if desired.

Accessorize Sparingly

Keeping the accessories natural and simple bring the elegance to the forefront of the picture. Plants and glass textiles are a great way to keep a room from feeling cluttered or unnecessary. Furniture should definitely be soft and comfortable and tie it all together.
