Contemporary interior design style - Happily Inspired

A contemporary design style is not only covetable, but it’s also versatile. One recent client wanted their new construction to overflow in style and comfort. So, they turned to Decorilla to make it a reality. And soon they boasted a striking interior worthy of an editorial cover! Read on to see the stunning result.

The Challenge: Contemporary Interiors with a Twist

With every new build comes excitement yet also trepidation once you grasp the task at hand. Fortunately, the process is made easy in the hands of vetted interior designers. With this in mind, there were a few challenges to tackle. More specifically, the designer needed to:

  • Honor the client’s love for contemporary design through furniture, finishes, and décor
  • Design a multi-room interior, ranging from an online bedroom design to a tranquil outdoor area
  • Incorporate statement furnishings the client already owned
  • Ensure there is a cohesive and alluring theme throughout the contemporary interiors
  • Create an airy feel even in the smallest room

Once the client knew what they wanted, they could dive into their brief. First up was a quick style questionnaire to pin their love for contemporary interior design. Next, a virtual consultation with Decorilla pinned the must-haves and refined the brief. From here, the team could select designers best suited to the project.

Vintage-inspired furniture makes the contemporary design style come to life. On the one hand, retro curves and tactile upholstery complement edgy lighting and abstracts in artwork and the rug pattern. While, on the other, the lively hues of the wall art enliven the room’s gentle creams and wood accents.

The contemporary style living room is undeniably chic, yet it is also comfy and airy. The light hues create a roomy look, while the soft seating and spacious layout welcome easy lounging. Fortunately, the room size is ample which allows for a flexible floor plan. So the grand curved sectional and accent chairs frame a big round coffee table. It feels intimate yet expansive.

They certainly create an impeccable sense of place. While many aspects of the design are light, grounding elements are dark gray and black, including the sizeable rug and dining chair legs.

Outside, a sleek pool area also gets a contemporary interior design update. Slender silhouettes of twin chaise lounges and steel bar stools bring a modish appeal while wicker chairs add comfort. The color scheme is muted and neutral to showcase what’s most important – the beautiful outdoors.

The lanai, or enclosed patio area, is just as high in style as the interior. Here sleek outdoor sofas, trendy tables, and geometric pillows create a beautiful setting. Once again, plenty of seating ensures comfortable get-togethers day or night.
