Paula's Advice

Bold bursts of color and texture complete this simple, contemporary space.

  • Big vibe in a room with an earthy contemporary design. Great play of scale with a large wall and oversized lamps surrounded by low mid-century furniture and accents. You can’t ignore how the colors feel like an Arizona sunset!

    Scene Vibe

    The vibe in this room is contemporary but with a twist of mid-century and eclectic! Without a doubt, the jaw-dropping ‘hotelement’ in this space is the reclaimed wood wall. The vertical installation of the wood planks and oversized floor lamps play with the scale in this living room lobby space. What completes this space is the burst of color and texture. The red and gold hues remind you of an Arizona sunset against an earthy desert backdrop.

    Paula’s Design Tips

    • Pay attention to current trends for contemporary design inspiration
    • Select finishes that can be your ‘wow’ factor. Tile, Flooring, Mouldings
    • Use open floor and furniture plans and integrate unique shapes into the space
    • Incorporate clean and crisp lines

    Lifestyle > Contemporary

    Contemporary design typically refers to what is popular and current right now, what is of the moment! For that reason, it is also very eclectic because, like trends, they are ever changing and borrow styles from all eras. These spaces incorporate large ceilings and windows and have an open floor plan with a streamlined indoor to outdoor space. Furniture has clean lines and finishes are natural elements that are on trend.
