Detecting Your Interior Design Style: Captivated by Contemporary

Identifying What Your Design Style Is Over the past few weeks, I have been featuring different interior design styles in an effort to shed light on some of the mysteries of interior design. If you haven't had a chance to take the test yet, visit this blog. Once you have taken your test, you can polish up on your interior design styles by reading more about modern and traditional interior design.

If you have taken the test and answered mostly “a,” congratulations, you are most attracted to contemporary interiors and decor. If you're like me, you may be asking yourself what that means and what some pieces of furniture or decor that are contemporary, but I’m here to help clear all of that up for you.

Contemporary interior design can be defined by four words: Garrison Hullinger Interior Design. Yep folks, Garrison loves contemporary interiors and adds his own twist with bright pops of colors and mixed fabrics. To help you conceptualize what contemporary looks like, it's the interior design style that incorporates the latest and greatest fabrics & products.

A few things that I’ve picked up on while researching and seeing contemporary interior designs:

  • Contemporary interior design looks and feel family friendly & kid friendly, or at least at GHID
  • Clean lines introduced to patterns and texture with a taste of the latest materials and finishes
  • Accessory-friendly interior design style; styling in three's is normally a great rule of thumb to stick by
  • Embraces curves and organic shapes
After studying contemporary design for a while, I let my creative juices flow and created the below Olioboard to show you guys how to pull together a contemporary space. What do you all think?
