To reach the finish line, you have to know where you are going. The same can be said for picking an interior design style when embarking on a home transformation. A recent client knew she wanted contemporary decorating for her new family home but needed expert help with the interior. So, she turned to Decorilla – read on for the striking finale!
The Challenge: Contemporary Interior Design
Although the home’s setting was stunning, the interior needed some work. For starters, some rooms were blank slates, while others required to incorporate existing furniture. Beyond these aspects, the designer needed to address the following challenges:
- Create space for new furniture and décor while including existing ones
- Come up with layout ideas for each room
- Ensure optimal lighting solutions are provided for each space
- Stick to contemporary home décor and a cohesive interior design
- Create a neutral color palette through calm tones and breezy elements
- Form individual pockets of spaces while tying them together as a whole

Both proposed excellent concepts, but it was Dragana V. who stole the show!
Dragana’s concept highlighted the contemporary decorating style. Moreover, it contained a soft neutral color palette, comfortable furniture, and plenty of texture. Warm neutrals and calming gray accents were present, while wood elements added balance and dimension to the proposal. Overall, the moodboard spoke to a sophisticated and elegant design.

In the end, the family home transformation is welcoming and classy. Furthermore, each space is neat, with its own luxurious flair. Each room includes light tones with a contrasting element, contemporary home décor, and furnishings. Overall, this home feels refined yet inviting.
Contemporary Style Living Room
The family room has much contrast, which results in a visually appealing space. Centering the room is a modern fireplace, a stand-out feature in a charcoal-gray brick design. The room is also symmetric, with two chaises opposite each other and two accent chairs facing the fireplace.
Natural wood adds warmth to this space through the detailing above the fireplace and the coffee table. In addition, an oversized abstract artwork hangs on the wall, highlighting the color tones displayed in the room. Finally, this family room has light and airy window shades, along with subtle brass detailing on the lamps and as a side table. As a result, there is a neat yet chic aesthetic to this contemporary design.
Neutral Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is a neutral haven. Its contemporary home décor and elegant layout make it the perfect place to rest your head. Gray, beige, black, and wood accents have created an oasis of calm in this space. In addition to the two bedside tables, a dark ottoman sits at the end of the bed. Moreover, a comfy chair sits in the corner for relaxing.
The room features plenty of peaceful artwork, giving an artistic air. These, in combination with indoor plants and stone-based bedside lamps, result in a natural elegance. Lastly, a soft rug anchors the room with its placement in the center.
Kids Play Room
A great room is set for the children’s play area. Here, they have plenty of space to learn and expand their imaginations. A white desk flanks a bookshelf that has space for ample storage. Moreover, a lowered green sofa is perfect for little people! Additional accessories stir the imagination. For instance, a colorful world map and a rug in the form of a clock will encourage creative play.
To the side of the play space is a casual, modern farmhouse-style dining area. Here, the grown-ups have a space of their own. In addition to a rustic chandelier, a bench, and black shaker chairs flank the wooden table. In the end, this room is the perfect hybrid use of space.
Contemporary Decorating for an Outdoor Space
The divided outdoor space has three areas in a contemporary décor style. A dining section, a firepit space, and a place to lounge by the pool. To the side, the firepit area has plenty of comfy chairs and a grounding rug that marks this space as its own. Its cozy touches and designer feel designates it as a true outdoor living room.
The dining table sits under a sun umbrella, allowing ample shade on sunny days. In addition, light woven chairs sit around an impressive white marble table with a black base.
