Modern decors focus on a minimalist approach. Neat and clean interiors that are more functional and practical are more in vogue. Streamlined color schemes, bold shapes and colors with less clutter and decorative pieces are what the new approach is all about. However modern style is not limited to simplistic approach only.
Funky interiors having all kind of mix and matched pieces, art collections and sleek furniture items are also in fashion. The trends of interior designs keep changing but people are very particular about what they want and choose the style that best suits their taste. A style combining two trends or approaches is also evolving stretching the definitions of interior decoration further.
Modern décor with simplistic designs however can give a very dull look at times. It is important to see that the simplistic approach does not end up making the room look very cold and empty. If you are the one who prefers having funky interiors then the simplistic approach might not work for you. Bright colored paintings, your collection of paintings and art collections add more life and warmth bringing a unique personal touch. With funky interiors you have more choices in terms of decorative items. There are no limitations as your definition of funky can be what ever you want it to be.
The modern furniture as opposed to old traditional heavy designs is more focused on being functional. The detailed ornate, antique styles with embellishments are not the fashion anymore. The old classical chesterfield sofas with chesterfield footstools are being replaced by chic, imaginative designs that are not so heavily built. Apart from wood, metal and glass materials are also being used for modern décor. In the modern decors lighting plays an important part. Lamps and modern lighting fixtures that add a warm glow and enhance the ambience are more popular.
