Contemporary design combines style and comfort: both are key requirements to ensure that every interior environment of your home can enjoy furnishing that is beautiful to look at without sacrificing comfort.
If you want to create a contemporary furnishing project that is consistent and harmonious and with aesthetic continuity across every room in the house - from the living room to the bedroom - while allowing each of these rooms to be different and personalised, it is essential to choose brands such as Adora, which focus on originality, customisation and the quality of the Italian furniture-making tradition.
Only with the quality of Made in Italy is it possible to notice the subtle details between one mood and another.
With the contemporary Adora collections it will be possible to customised each room (specific to the function it performs) while remaining within the macro-world of contemporary furnishing and preserving the aesthetic continuity mentioned above.
For example, in the bedroom, where all is about rest and intimacy, one could create a muffled, rarefied effect, marked by a light chromatic composition exploiting the refinement and ethereal luminosity of the Diamante collection or the dreamy atmosphere of the Essenza bedroom.
Contemporary interior design: 7 tips to furnish your house and make it look beautiful and cozy
Here are a few tips on how to set up the main rooms in the home and make them sophisticated and comfortable.
We have identified seven tips:
- Prefer neutral colour palettes for both paint and wallpaper and complement with bold accents
- Create a furniture arrangement that can provide both space and comfort
- Dedicate yourself to the living room and compose your dining set
- Move on to the sitting room: choose comfortable furniture with a sophisticated design
- Finally, the bedroom: opt for highly comfortable furniture, but without sacrificing style
- Dedicate time to the lighting: select designer lamps with a minimalist taste
- Complete each composition with contemporary art pieces
Let's continue by analyzing each step individually.
1. Prefer neutral colour palettes for both paint and wallpaper and complement with bold accents
Start with the background of your furnishing scenarios: with the help of an interior designer, create a mood board specifically designed for each room and establish a palette of colours with neutral base shades.
If you wish to add bright touches of colour you can do so later without any problems. This is made possible as contemporary interior design offers a wide choice of colours and shades.
To create a more charming visual impact, you could combine basic neutral colours with dark, cold shades, such as grey or green, or dark, yet warm and deep colours, such as blue, brown, and orange by following the latest trends that promote greater intimacy and familiarity in domestic environments, rather than cold and minimalist atmospheres.
Once you have chosen the colours for the various interiors, we recommend adding home decor elements for the walls to add warmth and make the overall look more personal.
If you like wallpapers, you could use them to create a chromatic break from the uniformity of the walls or a striking focal point in the room, choosing a pattern to emphasise, for example, a reading corner with bookshelves and armchair.
2. Create a furniture arrangement that provides space and comfort
In the rooms, which have been set up according to contemporary interior design, we find a cozy atmosphere, balanced in space and harmonious in form.
These are comforting visual and perceptive sensations that can be experienced only if you manage to create a layout devoid of any ornamental excess and that can give maximum comfort, order and rationality to the environment, making each piece of furniture and decorative object the protagonist of the set-up that has been created in each room.
The Ambra collection by Adora masterfully succeeds in this by offering austere and elegant furniture that makes minimalism the most characteristic feature.
In the contemporary style, the lines are simple, clean, and clear-cut thus the atmosphere is all about a pleasant sense of order and lightness - but there is no lack of precious details and a touch of luxury.
3. Dedicate yourself to the living room and compose your dining set
The first step in furnishing a living room to perfection is to design the composition of the dining set, starting with the dining table, the protagonist, and continuing with the chairs and other furnishing elements that make up the dining set: the showcases, buffet furniture and mirrors.
Your aim is to reproduce the contemporary design in every room: this is why we suggest you select a dining set made according to the criterion of this sophisticated concept.
One can choose between the Diamante Collection or the Sipario Collection remembering that each element of the dining set must be consistent with the prevailing atmosphere and style yet harmoniously juxtaposed to the structural elements of the house (floors, doors, windows) and speak of one’s personal stylistic preferences.
4. Move on to the sitting room: choose comfortable furniture with a sophisticated design
Sitting room furniture should be the perfect reflection of comfort and glamorous contemporary aesthetics. Therefore, prefer fine, comfortable furniture and a sophisticated stage presence: coffee tables, sofas, armchairs and chaise longue.
We always recommend you choose elements from the same collection in order to remain faithful to the stylistic concept established initially to furnish each room.
5. Finally, the bedroom: opt for highly comfortable furniture, but without sacrificing style
The bedroom is the most intimate area of the home and, consequently, the most difficult to furnish. It is more essential than other rooms to maintain the balance between comfort and style.
With Adora this task is a little easier because each collection is based on furnishing and contemporary style sets that spontaneously combine the need for beauty with the need for simplicity and functionality.
For your bedroom choose the Diamante Collection: perfect to make your personal oasis of relaxation and intimacy warm and welcoming, and it is ideal to be combined with the collections chosen to furnish the living and dining areas.
A large and comfortable bed with a wide headboard and with a uniform marble surface and contrasting colours; bedside tables that take on the features of the bed and offer the same precious details; mirror and dressing table en pendant.
6. Dedicate time to the lighting: select designer lamps with a minimalist taste
For a final touch of style, choose lamps with a contemporary concept, such as:
- Pendant fixtures
- Recessed lamps
- Wall lights
- Floor lamps
By installing each solution in the various rooms of your home, you will introduce functional lighting points that ensure maximum visibility and complete the interiors with actual decorative elements.
Contemporary design requires materials that are solid and durable, but also malleable, capable of creating decisive and attractive profiles, such as:
7. Complete each composition with contemporary art pieces
The furniture is the protagonist of every room in your home, yet it is the details that make the difference.
Therefore, in order to complete the furniture composition of your living room, sitting room and bedroom, we suggest you choose contemporary art pieces or design accessories in accordance with the chosen concept, such as:
- Frames with a refined profile in polished wood or metal;
- Contemporary sculptures,
- Abstract, cubist and modern art paintings;
- Decorative mirrors, vases and contemporary style accessories.
