15 INSPIRING EXAMPLES OF CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR DESIGN
Many believe that contemporary interior design is all about achieving the ultra-minimalist look, but that isn’t necessarily the case.
Contemporary interior design is about creating an environment of comfort and simplicity; uncluttered, fresh and subtly sophisticated. It showcases the beauty of space, clean lines and uncomplicated clarity.
In this stunning style, neutrals, grey, black and white colour schemes reign (often accented with bold colour), as does the use of clean, smooth lines and geometric shapes.
Here we’ve compiled a few examples of our favourite contemporary interior design projects to inspire you!
