Contemporary is all about making your home your comfort zone. Fundamentally, simplicity, subtle sophistication, texture and clean lines help to define contemporary style decorating. As shown by this gorgeous residence, ruffles, fringe, bangles and beads are eliminated and accessories are limited to artistic pieces such as sculptural bar-stools, a white trellis space-divider and abstract wall art. Soft, quiet colours like ivory, taupe and dusky greys are chosen for the overall palette while minimal splashes of bold reds and blacks add a certain depth and excitement to the interior design. Simple, solid-coloured drapes are also preferred as the main window treatment for all the large windows and glass doors, which ties in perfectly with the contemporary style. Our most-talked-about furniture piece in this residence would have to be the sensational round bed in the master bedroom.
With a custom-designed round platform enveloping a plump king-size mattress dressed in luxurious bedding, this bed immediately becomes the focal point of the room. And rightly so, as it is proudly built at the center of the room and sensuously lit by a decorative lantern hung from a circular-patterned ceiling design. Not only that, a sleek built-in study desk is integrated into the open-shelf divider behind the bedhead. What an attractive yet practical idea! This residence does indeed boasts of clean, soft and uncluttered interiors. A touch of whimsy, a touch of class. Now that’s contemporary.
