#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Contemporary

Today, we’re showing off some really great contemporary items you can place in your homes at an affordable price! Contemporary is so sleek, chic, and an amazing design style to use in your home if you entertain guests often. It has a very sophisticated look to it. This design style is often used in big city apartments and in huge demand by young professionals. We love the “cosmopolitan” vibe it gives off. Check out how we create this look…

Foundation

Cool tones on the floor keep this style from having a traditional look. Wood flooring typically completes the foundation nicely, but contemporary is also very open to tile flooring as well.

Furniture

Keep everything somewhat simple. Have almost a minimalist mindset with an unusual twist. The quilted back gives that plain black office chair a tad bit of pattern. The simple bar cart is perfect against that plain wall you don’t know what to do with, and the nesting table crossing over the coffee table gives the central area of the living room a unique look.

Decor

Keep simplicity in mind when picking out decor as well. Don’t go too far to get anything extremely loud or bold. More than likely it won’t fit in with the rest of the vibe. Keeping the decor to neutrals and metals is ideal, but don’t forget to add in your own personal style with the design of the items!

#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Industrial

Along with entering the New Year, we are starting a new series about each different interior design style, and this week, we’re starting with industrial. It’s a favorite of ours and has a very diverse look. You can take any piece of decor or furniture that has an industrial feel and make it look masculine or feminine which makes this style a very sought after design.

Foundation

For an industrial style home, you need an industrial style foundation. You can achieve this look with a cool gray, on-trend vinyl tile and a dark chalkboard wall. It gives a unique feel guided more towards a creative mind. Remember when it comes to wall designs and cabinets, nice wood really complement this style.

Furniture

We’re sharing some of our favorite industrial pieces of furniture! How cool is this leather chair that has a very antique feel, and check out this filing cabinet desk! Pretty much every website you can buy furniture from categorizes all the furniture and decor by style. Just keep in mind the worn, matte metals and the finished, medium/dark wood will definitely lend a helping hand in scoring this style for your home.

(All the furniture pieces were picked from wayfair.com.)

Decor

Here are some of our favorite industrial style decor items that we’re sure you’ll love! We have featured some trinkets for a vignette, a hanging mirror, a vase (yes, the brass pipe is a vase), and a wooden clock. These are the perfect items to place around your home to really add that special quality to achieve the look you are hoping for!
