Although not minimalist as such, modern homes do tend to be free from clutter and be light and airy. Usually antique furniture is not very common with more contemporary and modern designs being chosen. Wood is a material that is often found in modern homes, but usually in a contemporary way. Coffee tables could well be made from oak as could bedroom furniture too. The wood will be interspersed with other modern materials such as metal or glass to provide the overall look and effect of serenity and calm.
Subtle, neutral colors provide an excellent backdrop for walls and ceilings. White is the perfect backdrop for bold artwork and contemporary furniture. Colors look great against a background of white. Even a tinge of color will make a difference in the overall look. Inject a bit of color by painting the doors and window frames in a contrasting color to enhance the white on the walls. Whites also contrast well with rich, dark furniture colors. Even off-white can convey a feel of richness and depth.
Forget about those heavy burgundy and gold accessories and wall colors. Today’s modern and contemporary dining rooms are often done in shades of pale grey and cream. This switch from heavy and oppressive to simple and minimal lightens and brightens the room. The walls should provide an open and airy feel to the room instead of stately and formal. Not only will your room look bigger, but your guests will find it much more relaxing to be in the space, as well. Opt for furniture that coordinates with this new color palette by choosing a black dining room table and chairs.
