This style of decor is an informal aspect of a modern style. Contemporary living does not have to be stark and clinical. This look has a pleasing, comfortable feel which is often synonymous with a slightly rustic look.
Roller blinds and Roman blinds in soft greens and golds will match well with pine furniture and wooden flooring. Wooden curtain poles are also perfect for a relaxed modern look, metal curtain poles unless they are traditional brass or wrought iron will always look very contemporary due to their late arrival on the interiors scene. Wooden venetian blinds will suit any colour scheme and look equally attractive from the inside as well as the outside.
Floral fabrics will always have an enduring appeal that transcends fashion trends. There is currently a floral renaissance but with a modern element. The vintage looking florals will always create a perfect country cottage look, not what is required for a modern look.
Simple curtain headings such as double pinch pleat or pencil pleat headings will suit this style of decor rather than the more formal look of a triple pinch pleat heading and remember that while buying and arranging the finishing touches to the room are the really fun part, as someone famous, but I cannot remember who it was once said, ” be careful not to over egg the pudding”. Clutter is not synonymous with a modern decor.
In modern interior design a tablescape is now well recognised. It is the clever grouping of unrelated objects combined harmoniously into one visually pleasing display, but make sure they are items that you like and perhaps need in the room or the end result will create the feeling of living in a property developer’s show home.
