When it comes to color, think bold. Not only will turquoise and green colors remain popular as they have been, but various hues of bright pink will reign. Also, subdued colors such as sage green, barn red and mocha brown will increase in popularity. And do not be surprise to see close to neon colors being used for outdoor furniture. From lime green and vibrant orange to a shocking Caribbean blue, these colors will add instant energy to an outdoor space. And, who would have thought wallpaper would make a comeback. Well, it has and will continue to be a great way to add a bold pattern to a room without adding expensive artwork.
Neutrals, black, and white are the main colors in contemporary style interiors. The palette is often punched up and accented with bright and bold color. Black is often used to ground and define a contemporary style room. With walls painted in a basic neutral, you have a wonderful backdrop for bold colored accessories. If the walls and windows are painted in pastels, the trims should be neutral. If a wall is a bright, bold color, neutrals should be used everywhere else.
Natural lighting through windows has a very calming and peaceful effect on our moods and emotions whereas a lack of light and even poor artificial lighting can trigger depression. To improve your mood, maximize as much natural light from the sun as possible. If you have a room that does not allow for much natural light, if any, try using light fixtures with softer light bulbs to help. Or, use mirrors strategically to help reflect the natural light around the room.
One of the most important elements of creating a mid century modern home is the furniture. Its signature trait is sleek lines and geometric shapes. However, the furniture itself may have different purposes. A buffet might fold out to become a longer table. It also utilizes non traditional materials like plastic, plywood and plexiglass.
