What do you think of when the word “luxury” comes up? Most people imagine a large house, probably done up in a Victorian style, with dark leather in the study, ornate sofas in the living room, Persian rugs, and a large dining table with candelabra and two people sitting at either end.
The Modern Style of Interior Decoration
The fact is that all this might seem luxurious, but it’s also a bit forbidding and distant, in a way. We live in the 21st century and many people prefer a more modern style of interior decoration. But modern does not necessarily have to mean white leather sofas and a lot of chrome and steel. It just means being practical with your space.
Introducing a Feeling of Space
One aspect of a modern style of interior design is that it is not cluttered up. There’s always a feeling of space. In fact, there might be more space to walk around in a one-bedroom apartment decorated in a modern way than in a five-bedroom house decorated in a Victorian fashion.
Picking Practical Furniture Pieces
If you want to decorate your house/apartment in a modern way, look for furniture pieces which don’t take up too much room but which are comfortable at the same time. Modern furniture does not have too many frills like claw feet or carving. A plain, comfortable sofa is preferable to something which looks ornate but is not very comfortable.
The same goes for a coffee table or a dining table. Think about utility. How many people do you have in your home? Consider that and then go with a dining table that will be suitable for daily use.
Adding Touches of Warmth
At the same time, remember that a modern style of decoration does not mean that you can’t have any warmth in your home. You can always add some decorative touches in the form of paintings that you like, flowers, plants etc. But the whole idea is to pick a few decorative elements and go with those rather than scattering them all over the home.
