Despite the use of raw materials and a clear inclination toward conserving tradition, the interior reflects modern design. Minimalist furniture and an open-plan living and dining area hint toward contemporary living. In the kitchen, the cupboard guards the stairs that lead the way to the second floor.
The terms— modern and contemporary — have been intermingled in the design world, resulting in a bit of confusion. A kind of confusion that leads us to ask: Is contemporary architecture/design the same as modern architecture/design? The answer is no, and a little bit of yes. To be very literal, contemporary means now, while modern refers to technological and engineering developments that date back to the turn of the 20th Century.
Overall, modern architecture is defined by clean lines and minimalist interiors that allow the structure to speak for itself and take center-stage. The image below is a perfect example of clean and simple modern architecture.
Flowers, prints, patterns and texture are still everywhere. While some designers, believe that the new turn toward neutrals is a sort of rebellion against all the busyness of these patterns, others are still utilizing them and show no signs of slowing down. Florals and textures on furniture, fabrics and wallcoverings are still very popular. In addition to the florals, the luxe market is seeing a lot of chintz, and Chinoiserie which seems never to have really faded from interest.
