Contemporary Architectural Features: 3 Hassle-Free Ways to Get the Look

Want to get the look of contemporary architectural elements without undergoing home reconstruction? We’ve got three ways to recreate contemporary structural features, sans hard hat. Check them out:

1. Industrial Loft

This look combines modern with contemporary. Hard features like a cement industrial ceiling and angular furniture are softened by textured fabrics and comfortable pillows. Floor-to-ceiling drapery made of charcoal and ivory fabrics sewn together divide the room and mellow the strong lines of the windows. Get the look with a low-sitting couch upholstered in grey wool flannel, black & white plaid pillows, and a wallpaper that mimics cement.

2. Natural Elements

Natural elements like wood and stone are often used in contemporary decor. Here, a linear wood ceiling parallels the wood floor and a fireplace echos the stone wall just beyond the windows. For an easy and less expensive way to create the look, use wood veneer and granite wallpapers.

3. Coffered Ceiling & Textured Walls

What a statement a coffered ceiling makes in a beige room! Andrew Martin’s Regent wall covering is the perfect way to recreate this without renovating. To give dimension to a room full of natural hues, use textures like silk and quartz wallpaper.
