Contemporary design is often mistaken for minimalistic approach to designing, but there is a significant difference. “Contemporary” means something that is in trend right now, so it covers a wide range of styles and approaches. The basic rule of this kind of design is that there are no strict rules – you can feel free to use the space as a stage to tell a certain story. This implies that one can has no restraint when designing a space, but nevertheless has to keep in mind that unique and useful are two totally different terms and the second one is of much greater importance.
So, how to create contemporary interior? In order to do it, you have to be up-to-date with the latest achievements in technology development, culture of living in certain areas and current trends in what is considered “attractive” at the given time. Also, you have to think about functionality of the space during the entire process of designing one because it serves people, not the other way around and unless it is an art gallery, they won’t like it if it they feel discomfort while being inside. The last thing you have to think about before turning your idea into reality is the point you want to get across to the ones who’ll use the space and what is the media you’ll use to do it – is it color, room arrangement, light etc.
