top five tips for decorating a contemporary room could be just the springboard you're looking for

    HOLMFIRTH, ENGLAND, February 25, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Are you looking for the latest in furnishings for a living room that requires the wow factor? Have you decided on a colour scheme but need to be guided in the right direction? These top five tips for decorating a contemporary room could be just the springboard you're looking for:

1. Restore Original Features

Restoring the original features of room can bring a delightful contrast with complementary contemporary furniture and furnishings. Old meets new not only brings your home up to date but it doesn't strip the history out of it, leaving the interior interesting and characterful.

2. Add Pictures, Canvases and Giclee Prints

Pictures, canvases and giclee prints all add to the tone of a room. Whether it's an original statement art piece, a quirky modernist canvas or a muted abstract print it can paint a thousand words and lift the feel of a room when contrasted against colours in your room's decor.

3. Expose brickwork

Exposing the brickwork of a wall in a room might at first appear to be an odd choice but it brings the rustic charm of the outdoors within. When set against bookcases and shelving or with the addition of contemporary furniture such as a lounge chair and footstool, it can really make an impactful statement for a low cost.

4. Consider Clocks (Wall and Mantel)

It is sometimes hard to make a decision on the choosing the right clocks: wall and mantel both have good design features. The classic Napoleon shaped mantel clock is now available in the mahogany hues of the classic home and the modernist bright colours of contemporary styling and with its timeless design you can have the best of both worlds. Pendulum wall clocks are now also available in a classic or contemporary style.

5. Make a Statement

A statement piece is often what brings a successful room together. If your room has original features you could be as bold as fitting a chandelier, or purchasing a large piece of abstract art. Whatever you decide be confident in your choice and your guests will be bowled over.
