Decorative accessories are another important piece in pulling your contemporary look together. Concentrate on getting wall art and pillows that match your contemporary design style. For accent pieces you want the lines to be clean and avoid a lot of clutter. Be certain to add in loads of plain bowls with fruit as well as simple linear floral arrangements and you might even try some black and white photography to get a professional look for your living room. Additional touches such as vintage art deco accessories can help setup your room with a polished decorative appeal but don't go overboard because with the contemporary look less is better.
What's on your floor can add to the decorating style but if you can not afford new floors in your living room then you can mask your current floors with small rugs with a contemporary design - either a geometric print or a plain sisal rug. If you are lucky enough to be able to afford new floors check out bamboo floors or slate or clay tile. Sleek lined furniture with chrome accents goes nicely with this look and you might try shopping at consignment stores if you are short on cash.
Dining room sets form one of the most important accessories of any living room. And because of this they have to match just about everything in the dining room. Sofas fabrics and the wall should also blend in color so as give your living room an extraordinary look. When selecting color you need bright colors that will compliment each other and at the same time make your room appears more spacious. Colors such as lemon white lemon shades and even peach when combined will give your living room extra space together with a sense of comfort. Dark colors on the other hand may not be the best for your room. Not only will they make the room appear smaller but may make it appear intense and intimate.
