Contemporary Style

March 17, 2015

Contemporary style…what exactly is contemporary? That’s a good question for those trying to determine their very own decorating style. Contemporary starts with the idea that less is more, with smooth profiles instead of ornamentation, subtly patterned fabrics in lieu of colorful prints complimented by minimal accessories. Within the contemporary style you will find strong emphasis on line and form. You will see pared-down designs like flat-front cabinets to sleek stainless-steel appliances. Interiors showcase space rather than things. Clean lines   The most distinctive element of contemporize style is line. It’s found in architectural details like high ceilings, bare window and geometric shapes used in wall art and sculpture. Bare spaces become as important as areas filled with objects in this style. Each design element or accessory stands out and is individual and unique. Neutrals, black and white are the main colors in contemporary style with bright and bold colors accenting the décor. Walls are typically painted in basic neutral colors but the style is far from boring. By using bursts of color, the style stays up to date and modern. Even though contemporary style relies on clean lines to capture the style, it is far from uncomfortable. This style lends well to large furniture and fabrics often have natural look found in wool, cotton, linen, silk, jute and add textural appeal. To capture the style furniture pieces should be simple and uncluttered, without curves or decoration. Exposed legs are often found on chairs and sofas with beds having no skirts. The uncluttered style of contemporary is calming and relaxing giving the feeling of cleanliness. It is soothing and comfortable. Konda  

Home design was my absolute favorite part of the home building process! It was one of the top 3 reasons why we decided to build with Baessler. It is a hobby of mine, and I'm passionate about creating beauty in my home. Baessler (Jamie T. specifically) made my dreams a reality. I loved that there wasn't a request I made that wasn't able to happen. The design options were plenty and diverse in style. I truly didn't have to just settle for something I didn't love! We were impressed with the many included features and felt the upgrades we did were reasonably priced. The finished product is absolutely beautiful! People walk in and comment how my home is such a reflection of me - and that is a compliment to Baessler as much as to me!
