Many people tend to confuse modern and contemporary interior design. While the two are fairly similar, there is a slight difference. Contemporary design is made to be as modern and trendy as possible, and there are a number of aspects that contemporary design has in common with modern design. Although most houses now have central heating the fire has very much remained the heart of the home. It is rare to find even the most modern of homes without a focal fireplace. We may not need to use fires but there is something about the warm and welcoming effect they bring to a home that means they are a lasting fixture in interior design. If you are bored of the traditional colour choices and wish to make your walls look more appealing and attention drawing, you can make use of wall decals. Avoid too much of texture or effects over the walls, as it would over power the other aspects of your room and get in the cramped space feeling.
