Hey, there! In this issue, I would like to talk about the difference between modern and contemporary design. Most of the time, these two words are used interchangeably giving a notion that they mean the same.  While it is true that they share many similar characteristics, these two are very different from each other.

Let’s differentiate the two while we show you this contemporary bungalow that we are sharing with you today.

Elle Decor wrote that modern design refers to the specific time period from the early to mid-twentieth century. From modern came mid-century modern (which was developed in, you guessed it, the 50s and 60s), although in the interior design world the term “modern” often encompasses both. The style is predecessor  to contemporary design. So, any design that came within this period is considered a modern design.

The distinct style focused on simple form and function, which are valued as equals under this style. Think earthy palettes, natural materials like wood, leather, and stone, and streamlined silhouettes.

Modern design rejected the style of its predecessors like the heavy textures, ornamentation, and plenty of dark and dramatic elements during the Gothic, Renaissance and Victorian periods in favor of   clean, straight lines, uncluttered spaces, and an overall lack of fussiness.

Everything that you put in your house should have a basic function and if you are not sure why a thing is there, discard it!

The article also explains that contemporary design on the other hand does not designate time. It is constantly evolving; it is the design of the present and the future.  It’s like what maybe contemporary now and trendy may not be the trend after 10 years.  It is inspired by many styles like modernism, minimalism, and may also has some touch of Gothic or Renaissance whenever necessary.   It does not focus on any particular style because it is always changing.  Whatever is the trend now is considered to be contemporary.

This house is a contemporary design that is inspired by modernism and minimalism.  The use of straight lines and rectangular shapes on its exterior are typical of a modern design.

The floor plan is designed to accommodate two cars, three bedrooms, a free-flowing space for the living and dining rooms, two toilets and baths, a kitchen and a back veranda.  It’s quite compact but it is very ideal for a small family or a single occupant who is looking for privacy.
