The Joy of Clean, Calm, Contemporary Home Decor

A clean, clutter-free home need not be cold and emotionless. It does not have to look like a museum, or feel like a doctor’s office. It can, and should be, a place that invites you to breathe easy, enjoy a little of the outdoors, and feel restful within.

So, strip off the heavy curtains and the bulky chairs. Give your pad a cool, comfortable and clean look with minimum fuss and furniture. You’ll see that it has a wonderfully calming effect on your mind, too.

Keywords in Contemporary Decor

Sleek: lacquered cabinets, granite work surfaces, stainless steel, smooth stone. Rule of thumb: no intricate patterns or elaborate details. Ease of cleaning and maintenance are prime. Keep your upholstery smooth and simple, too. Instead of high-maintenance velvet and satin, think linen and raw silk.

Clean: uncluttered. Ideally, a modern home is free of unnecessary knickknacks, but if you simply cannot let go of those old favorites, line a wall with flush-mount cabinets and neatly stack everything in.

Open and well-lit: lots of glass! Clear glass windows and partitions, with lots of light and sweeping views. Indoor lighting is planned with care—no ugly hanging wires and garish chandeliers. Think pure clean halogen lights, track and recessed lighting, focused fixtures and smart lamps with dimmers.

Functional: simple, low-base, modular furniture with sleek lines and angular contours. Everything in your contemporary pad should be here because it looks good and has some use. No room for sentimentality or stuffiness here!

Neutral: think natural, sophisticated white, beige, grey and black. Tone-on-tone upholstery. No, don’t yawn yet! Subdued doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, give it a slight pop of colour—a zebra-print cushion, a vibrant lamp, a warm accent wall—just enough to wake up your place in a blink!
