Most people start decorating their home with the living room. This is a room where family and friends gather to visit watch seasonal sports games or movies. With that in mind selecting the right furniture for easy care and comfort is very important. The starting point for your furniture selection is choosing the right couch.
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.
Functional as well as decorative. A great idea especially when working with a small space is to select items that make great features yet also serve a purpose. For instance chaise lounge chairs are great not only as lounges but they also double as a place to put your feet up and provide extra seating when you are entertaining guests.
