The Challenges of a Contemporary House Remodel

Contemporary house remodel - from the dining room to the bedroom

Creating a sophisticated interior takes skill, especially when it’s a whole-house makeover. Fortunately for this project, the client was detailed and descriptive about what they wanted, from the ceiling finish to the contemporary décor. Yet, like any task, this contemporary home remodel had specific design challenges. To overcome these, the designer had to:

  • Design a contemporary interior with a rustic twist that complements the surrounding woodland and farmhouse architecture
  • Update the stair railing to suit the sleek look the Miami-native client prefers
  • Visually soften the all-white interior cladding with alternatives in grey, gold, and wood
  • Replace flooring throughout the house with hardy materials that can withstand wear from pets

Abstract and pop art are among the client’s most-loved wall décor, with their personal travel photos taking first place. Keeping this in mind, it’s clear that they like abstract lines – marble and wallpaper can also provide this contemporary design style. Their top colors include rich greys combined with contrasting beige and white. By combining warm and cool colors, these inspiring interiors are perfectly balanced. In addition, the client also leaned towards modern furniture, which goes beautifully with contemporary trends.   

Contemporary Mood Board & Design Style

Alongside inspirational images, the client sent footage of their home to give the designer a distinct idea of what the rooms needed. This enabled Decorilla’s designers to create a thorough and detailed concept perfectly tailored to the brief. After receiving the preliminary proposals, the client chose Mladen’s sleek yet approachable style.

To give the client a clear view of his concept, Mladen C. created a mood board for every room, complete with notes. He was also sensitive to the client’s need to marry contemporary and rustic aesthetics. By combining modern and contemporary design and incorporating natural materials, Mladen could create a concept that is equally refined and welcoming.

To create a beautiful open-concept living and dining room, a designer must pay special attention to spatial planning and the room’s layout. Here one zone flows seamlessly into the next for a few reasons. The first being a harmonious neutral color scheme that results in a cohesive aesthetic. The second, further bringing the room together, is the focus on form and pattern. Slim, line-like chandeliers feature above both the dining table and lounge area, while striped rugs enhance these motifs even more. 

Open Living & Dining Practicality

With open walkways, it is easy to move around furniture as well as from one area to the next. Movability is certainly vital to successful design. For the living area, the designer used an L-shaped couch and a complementary accent chair. The latter is slim, architectural in its shape with a swooping seat and tapered legs – a true ode to modernism in a contemporary setting. And the sofa provides ample seating without taking up too much floor space. The layout ensures the room feels airy as the design opens to the adjacent dining area.

With the addition of wood floors and panels, a fireplace, and a marble mantel in the lounge, the living space has a welcoming glow. And, next to the gold accents and furniture hardware, even the grey wall color looks plush. Additionally, the ceiling finish makes the room even more memorable as it strengthens the stripe theme subtly and smartly.

Although the palette for the contemporary house remodel is neutral, the interior is eclectic and lively. The reason lies in furniture and contemporary decor use. In fact, this design is a fantastic example of how furniture form and pattern can make all the difference.

One of the most impactful parts of this project is the lighting design. The designer paid careful attention to include layered light and make statement pieces truly stand out while bringing balance to the aesthetic. In addition, every aspect of this design, from the slightest to most substantial, has a purpose. And, together, they create a seamless dream home.

One glance at the bedroom, and you’ll know: this is what dreams are made of. As a result, a canopy bed with soft voile, perfectly layered bedding, plush pillows, and a luxurious rug underfoot all form part of a satisfying, successful design. What’s more, the focus on symmetry highlights the structural elements of the contemporary design style. The strong lines from the poster bed, mirrors, and ribbed pedestals also tie in with the rest of the home’s contemporary décor and aesthetic.

Colors and lighting are skillfully used in this contemporary house remodel. For instance, the mirrors that flank the bed reflect the soft light coming from the delicate table lights. This design trick provides an additional layer of light as well as makes the room feel expansive.

In the bedroom, cooler tones take the lead as sandy browns and gold accents adorn the room minimally. Nevertheless, the result is just as harmonious as the other designs. Not only is the effect a pretty one, but it’s also functional. Furthermore, blues and colors with a cool undertone, like some greys, have a calming effect, which is perfect for a peaceful sleep. 

Entryway with Contemporary House Décor

Every part, even the downstairs entry, was carefully designed. As a result, the view from the front door resembles a contemporary artwork. The stairs, with marbled detail and dark wood steps, lead to a faux living wall and a sign that reads, “I am with you always.” The combination is at once spectacular yet sublimely serene. Once again, the use of warm and cool hues does wonders for the room, making it feel just right.

The entryway leads to an even more eclectic and enjoyable indoor patio. Round furniture, plenty of soft throws, and pillows beckon, “come in and relax!” An alternative entrance, like this one, is altogether a great icebreaker to make guests feel at home. Additionally, it also gives visitors a glimpse of the homeowner’s personality and interests. In this case, the different styles also give a well-traveled look to the home.
