Guest Post: Contemporary Looks for Today’s Living

Hello, all! It’s Mari here from Arcadian Home blog, a wonderful place to find interior design and decorating inspirations. I’m so excited to be visiting with you today at The View From 17th and Riggs to share a guest post about contemporary style. Contemporary spaces that work well are at once beautiful and extremely functional. From major appliances for the kitchen to mini pendant lights to illuminate dark corners all contribute to contemporary homes that today’s families love.

Here eight contemporary looks we hope will inspire your own interior design projects. Please enjoy!

Mid-Century modern and contemporary meet in this pretty redo. Subtle color and pattern give the space a warm and inviting vibe. Texture and movement make the beautiful contemporary rug the focal point of the design.

In today’s contemporary design, the kitchen is still the heart of the family home. This inviting pale blue and white space offers lots of room for cooking and conversation. I love the decision to surround the deep-set sky light with recessed kitchen lights.

Sleek contemporary built-ins create a home office that’s both pretty and functional. Glass shelving gives the spaces an open airy feel.

Today’s contemporary interior designs often include natural wood. This open dining room is a beautiful example of the brilliant use of many different woods and finishes in one space. The contemporary oval pendant light is a great design choice over the table.

Gray is fast becoming the go-to neutral in many contemporary homes. Darker shades of gray add depth to this open space. Pendant lighting stars here, in both the kitchen and adjoining dining room.
