We often use the words “modern decor” and “contemporary decor” interchangeably when discussing design and art. The truth is that these styles have their unique set of characteristics that give them their own identity.
1. WORKS OF ART OR DECORATIVE PAINTINGS
Incorporating art into your home is one of the most effective ways to improve the quality of your daily life and make a significant difference for the better. It doesn’t have to be something big, of course, and not everyone likes huge works of art that take up so much of your living space. Sometimes even the smallest and most subtle things can mean a lot and make a difference in how you perceive your surroundings, so here’s why art is so important in interior design and how you too can make the most of it. left.
Sharing the characteristics of all the other elements of the modern decorating style, the lighting is both purposeful and geometrically designed. The iconic Arco floor lamp and bolder Sputnik chandelier are prime examples of refined form and function.
A living room feels at home with a layering of ambient lighting, accenting, and flexible lamps and fixtures. Ambient light gives the room its overall brightness. While most rooms are designed with specific tasks in mind like cooking, eating, bathing, sleeping, the living room accommodates a wide range of activities, unique to each person.
3. SLIP INTO SCULPTURAL FURNITURE
As the striking furnishings and lighting in this living room show, sculpture can be beautiful and useful. For those who love ceramics, group the pieces together behind glass or on a humble window shelf. Curved, shapely furniture and containers draw the eye, inviting your gaze to dance through the space.

Those adorable plants in the photo are sleek in silks, but the frames and bases on them really pull the aesthetic look together. Fill the empty nooks and crannies of your home with indoor trees, seasonal bouquets or suitable greenery to give every room an authentic designer touch.
5. EMBRACE NATURAL LIGHT.
If you have it, post it. Natural light is desirable for a reason: it makes every room soothing and open. This small living room pictured embraces the floor to ceiling windows making it the focal point of the room. Whether you’re blessed with an abundance of natural light or have to work with less than ideal exposures, never neglect your windows. Finding the right curtains or blinds for your room can instantly transform the look.
6. ADD TEXTURE.
From rugs to throw pillows to comfy throws, textiles help break up a room and add visual interest (plus, who doesn’t love the feel of a super soft rug underfoot?). This living room has everything we love in a
7. REDUCE CLUTTER.
We love this modern kitchen in the Madisa building duplex for its stunning design. But even if your kitchen doesn’t have the same top-to-bottom renovation, a quick cleanup can go a long way. The counters in this kitchen are free of unnecessary clutter, making it feel larger and more welcoming. In every room of your home, finding ways to hide away or get rid of unnecessary things is one of the best ways to create a sense of beauty in your space.
