Studio KHORA: The contemporary home will have the right furnishings and decorations to welcome the family and their visitors. The right ambiance can be achieved starting with using the right living room accessories. There are homeowners who carefully mix classical pieces with modern home accessories for a unique, urban style living space. This can include installing retro lighting fixtures that can brighten up and accentuate every room in the house. Ultimately, comfort should not be compromised when in an effort to stylize a contemporary home. Budget should also be kept in mind so as not to go overboard when shopping for the right items to use. The following are the top modern accessories that can be used to create a more luxurious ambiance at home.
Curtains or Drapes
Using drapes and curtains to adorn windows, walls and hallways is a good way to add elegance and character to a home. The choice of fabric, patterns and prints on these drapes will dictate how luxurious and stylish the room can be. If the right design and colour of curtains are used, it can add a gorgeous and elegant effect to a living room. Curtains and drapes can also add a little more visual appeal to the house even when viewed from the outside.
Rugs or Carpets
Any contemporary home will have a rug or carpet to accentuate a particular room. In the living room, for example, an antique rug can be the highlight of the room, which both the family and their visitors can certainly appreciate. There are people who invest on imported and rare rugs in order to add a central focal point in their living rooms. Some homeowners pick a colour that matches the scheme in the room, while others prefer to use one that contrasts everything else in order to draw attention to it. Those who prefer a shabby chic ambiance will opt for a more neutral or light coloured rug or carpet.
The lighting fixtures have the ability to greatly enhance the general ambiance of any room. Specifically for contemporary homes, the use of lighting effects should be maximized in order to get an urban retro look. It is also a good idea to use candles around the house, in the dining room for example, for a more romantic yet modern look. If a person is looking to be extravagant, chandeliers can be a brilliant way to bring life into a room. There are also rustic types of lighting fixtures such as brass or iron that can bring out a country style effect in a modern house.
