A vital element when decorating your living room with a contemporary theme is your wall treatments. For this design style the colors can make or break the look - consider adding shades of browns and black or a sharp black and white look to the room. Try using a neutral color paint on the walls, or if you want something different go with a leather or suede wall covering.
Lighting is vital in any room and the living room is no exception. To match your contemporary design style, you need to look at light fixtures in terms of both style and type. The majority of living rooms can work with a table lamp combined with recessed lighting. When you will be incorporating a contemporary style, take a look at a chrome ceiling fixture with recessed lighting but steer clear of anything which is scrolly or fancy.
The materials used in rugs are natural and synthetic fibers. Nylon is a common synthetic fiber and is simple to take care of. Natural fibers are eco-friendly and they cost more. However, they will last longer. You will find natural fibers in the form of wool, cotton and other eco-friendly materials.
