Contemporary Living and Its Appeal

“Contemporary” architecture and style is and literally refers to, what is being created and produced right now. It is dynamic, meaning it’s constantly changing and evolving with style and trends. For this reason, it can be quite eclectic. Contemporary style isn’t tied down to one specific style; it’s of the moment and borrows aspects from a variety of styles and eras.

In comparison, Modern design, which many people confuse for Contemporary design, refers to a period of time. The words are often used interchangeably, yet both are completely different styles. Modern is a design style that stems from the modernist movement from between the very late 1800s and 1950s recognisable by its clean unadorned interiors. The key characteristics of modern design and architecture are the use of natural materials, neutral colour palettes, and clean, low lines. Modern design is often referred to as mid-century or retro.

Contemporary design, however, is ever changing and moves with the time. What is classed as Contemporary now, will not be in 5 or 10 years. New materials, shapes and structures are appearing in the home every few years. Though elements of design from other decades can feature in Contemporary interior design, they come together to create the recognisable features of a Contemporary home; comfort, sustainability and unique shapes. Ideas from styles such as Art Deco and Futurism are also seen in Contemporary design.

Our favourite aspect of Contemporary design is large, bare, uncovered windows. We love the feel of light, bright rooms featuring the key aspects of Contemporary design; pops of bold colour, rounded lines, high ceilings and bare wall space.We recently became the estate agent for an amazing Contemporary family home in Wymondham. The perfect property for those looking to live the “Grand Designs” life, without the stress of the build. The layout of the home lends itself perfectly to appreciate the conservation area it sits next to and the glass front offers a fantastic view. These huge windows let in a gorgeous amount of natural light to the property.
