Looking for Contemporary Urban Styling Tips and Ideas?

Contemporary Urban design is all about fresh white walls and neutral light colours which are the base of bringing a feeling of space and natural light throughout. Minimal Scandinavian style with light oak furnishings along with light linen sofas with a colour palate of caramel, stone and misty grey emphasise the contemporary look.

Julia suggests sticking with minimalistic window treatments especially on oversized windows.

I went with sheer linen s-fold curtains in the family room to help soften the room.

One of the eye catching features in the dining room is the “two tone” modern organic timber pendant light over the dining area.

I noticed the boys on the block also used this light in their apartment a few weeks ago. The light brings a modern edgy feel without being too stark. Minimal artwork, black and white photography works well in this interior. Keep the images and framing simple.

Julia also recommends that when accessorising a home like this you can have some fun by   adding items with a bit of character such as antlers or horns sitting next to a stack of books on a coffee table.

To create a final touch to this home Julia decided on textured fabrics, dark camel, leathers and cow hide add to the modern Scandinavian feel.
